Filming hasn't even started yet but Byron Baes has already had locals up in arms.
Though Netflix says that the show is a "love letter to Byron Bay" that will focus on the "fights, flings and heartbreak" of "hot Instagrammers" in the northern NSW coastal town, thousands of people have signed a petition calling for the show to be axed.
“We, the community of Byron, Ballina, Tweed, and Lismore Shires are not the perfect backdrop for this series,” a GetUp petition written by local member Tess Hall said. “We are a community experiencing significant challenges driven by influencer culture and rapidly shifting demographics of residents.”
“We do not want to be cast as the perfect backdrop and magnet for social media influencers. We do not want to appear in Byron Baes.”
Byron Shire Council's Greens Deputy Mayor Sarah Ndiaye said at a local protest: "I think the community has come out so strongly because this is not who they are and this is not who they want to be portrayed as."
"I think it's a really lazy choice on Netflix's part."
When the Daily Telegraph broke the news of Zac and Vanessa's split, shock jock Kyle Sandilands also shared some details.
Speaking on his KIIS FM radio show that he co-hosts with Jackie O, Kyle revealed the article "wasn't just a rumour".
"I can also confirm after speaking with him yesterday," he said on the air.
Kyle added that the break up was "recent" but not "yesterday recent" and clarified there was "no drama" behind it all.
Things may be over with Vanessa, but it doesn't seem like Zac is in any rush to head back to the US.
The Greatest Showman star obtained a 12-month visa extension after cancelling a trip to the US last September and has also listed his LA home for sale.
“He’s settled down,” a source told US Weekly.
“He hangs out with the Hemsworths. He goes surfing. He’s come a long way from partying in LA.”
