East Nashville, TN - The event planner for a controversial house party on Saturday is speaking out this morning about the gathering that drew hundreds to an East Nashville Airbnb.
"There's been a lot of misconceptions about Saturday's event and I'd like to set the record straight," said Fashion Casa event planner Bobbi Versnatchi. "It was not a party. It was just a large indoor protest against sobriety."
As an investigation into the event unfolds, Versnatchi contends that attendees were simply exercising their First Amendment rights.
The biggest complaint about the event was that hundreds of guests were not social distancing or wearing masks.
Versnatchi explained, "A protest against sobriety requires drinking. It's hard to drink while wearing a mask. This is common sense, people."
When asked why the Instagram announcement called the event a "tribute to fashion" and made no mention of protesting, Versnatchi said, "Last time I checked, drinking was fashionable."
He did admit that an intern had forgotten to mention the protest in the invitation. The intern has since exited the company.
Inquisitor Nashville tried to reach out to the intern for comment, but could not find a Lucy Gucci listed in the Nashville area.
