Vandals Glue Doors Shut And Cut Power At Burning Man's VIP Camp


As if Burning Man wasn't already crazy enough, vandals raided a VIP camp, cut off electricity and glued their doors shut.

White Ocean, which was founded by the son of a Russian billionaire, was targeted on Wednesday night.

Representatives described the chaos in a post on Facebook. Part of it read,

A very unfortunate and saddening event happened last night at White Ocean, something we thought would never be possible in OUR Burning Man utopia. A band of hooligans raided our camp, stole from us, pulled and sliced all of our electrical lines leaving us with no refrigeration and wasting our food and, glued our trailer doors shut, vandalized most of our camping infrastructure, dumped 200 gallons of potable water flooding our camp.

They contacted police who filed a report. There are no reports of arrests in connection with the incident.

Camp officials said they feel like they've been "sabotaged from every angle" and they've been made to feel like they have no place at Burning Man.


They added,

We actually had someone from the organization tell us that in paraphrase "it makes sense that you have been sabotaged as you are a closed camp and not welcoming."

Those poor, defenseless rich people.
