People on social media didn't hesitate to share their thoughts about the excrement debacle.
One person on Twitter wrote: "Think about not having gone to Woodstock 99 and not meeting new people well dancing in poop mud."
"Just finished watching that Woodstock '99 documentary on Netflix. The grotesque mismanagement. The poop water. The mob mentality. The lack of accountability. SHEEESH was the right word for that incident," another added.
A third wrote: "Of the many things I am grateful for, having the privilege to NOT drink and bath in the poop water at Woodstock 99 is at the top of the list. One dude was buuuuuhrushing his teeth with outhouse doo doo water."

\u201cIf @netflix can make a documentary about a bunch of white guys rolling in poop mud at Woodstock 99, then they can turn this into a documentary as well.\u201d
\u201cI watched the Woodstock 99 documentary. I have a distinct memory of being at a sleepover and MTV's coverage of it being on the TV, and everyone was going crazy in the mud. Now that I know it was poop mud... \ud83e\udd22\u201d
John Scher, the promoter for the festival, tried to downplay the assaults and said that Woodstock was similar to a "small city."
"I'd say that there would probably be as many or more rapes in any sized city of that… but it wasn't anything that gained enough momentum so that it caused any on-site issues, other than, of course, the women it happened to," Scher said in the Netflix documentary.
Speaking with HuffPost, Blaustein described Scher's degree of denial as "Trumpian."
"I almost feel bad for him. I bet if he came out and said,' I f***** up, and I'm sorry,′ the victims and their families might get some closure or satisfaction. I think he owes them that," he told the outlet via email.
The reporter also noted that if Scher thought the event was a small city, he should've made the event more secure.
