A social media promoter who attempted to organize several so-called “pop-up” parties at the Jersey Shore has issued an apology about the attempt.
A judge granted an injunction earlier this week banning a planned pop-up party in Seaside Heights that was supposed to take place next week. The party organizer was told they cannot hold the event on May 5, May 6 or June 17.
The organizer posted the apology on the Instagram account named “RatedRParties.”
"Everyone please don't make the same mistake I've made with these ‘link up’ parties because now look what I have to face this was supposed to be a social gathering, a simple get together but this was just a mistake that I have to face. Everyone for the love of God please don't go to Seaside or Wildwood the day of the link ups I can't stress this enough,” the organizer wrote.
Over the last couple of years, pop-up parties began to get noticed by local beach communities. Two people died last September during a pop-up rally in Wildwood. In 2020, a large crowd took over Point Pleasant Beach, leaving behind garbage and empty alcohol bottles and drawing many complaints from neighbors.
