Thread on the backgound of Diane Culligan, who claimed in May to control a bizarre breakaway club from #MillwallLionesses & husband Anthony, a former shirt sponsor's owner (which recently declared Insolvency at the High Court).

An off-site page of this thread unrolls at its end.
FYI @kelly_noble1 @MichelleYoung90

Anthony David Culligan, b.1963, (husband of @Diane_Culligan) owns 31.73% of SETL Developments Ltd, Co. Number 09704844

Mrs Culligan became Director of #MillwallLionesses, June 2018 & assumed Notifiable Control of @FAWC_ club, Oct.2018

#MillwallLionesses bore the one of the brand logos of Mr Culligan's #TechStartup company, namely as "SETL Blockchain" = @SETL_io

This story. Brad Pitt enthusiastically promised New Orleans’ 9th Ward:

150k house featuring green-focused initiatives: solar panels, modern design w/ artistic rooflines, designer built & u get to pick a model.

Yep, he did & got tons of praise/$/buyers.…
1) Meaning his non-profit was promising a designer house costing millions, charging poor people 150k, & here’s the kicker:

a) has 0 experience building houses but thought he’d influence the future of building!

b) prioritised lofty ideals (solar) over fundamentals (structure).
2) So clearly an incidence #FyreFestival here. I’m sure he meant well but boy was he self-absorbed enough to think his star power & sheer will would bypass basic economics & common sense.

These people spent tons of $ on good “intentions” & not much on building sound shelters

1/ The #FyreFestival documentaries on both Netflix and Hulu are so good. You MUST watch both. Netflix is a deeper dive into the fraudulent activity of the business and founder. Hulu offers some of that as well but goes deeper into a generations impact on society.
2/ Overall #FyreFestival is a perfect example of everything that’s disgustingly wrong with the tech industry. This goes above and beyond “bro culture.” It’s way deeper than that.
3/ It’s an example of the narcissistic sociopathic nature of many founders that’s celebrated over actual intelligence. If you are a white guy who knows how to play the game, can use the right finance vernacular, and fit into character you can and will win.
