Eventbrite: "We are looking into this one."

Received the following email from Eventbrite's Press Team within 10 minutes of hitting "send": 
Hi Julie-

Thanks for reaching out about this event.

Eventbrite is a self-service software platform that event organizers use to ticket their events. What that means is that we don't have a role in the planning of events that are posted on Eventbrite, but we do have a dedicated team that investigates the validity of events that may be fraudulent.

We take this kind of feedback very seriously. And when we determine that an event is fraudulent, we do take appropriate action, which can include issuing refunds.

We are looking into this one, but unfortunately I don't have any further details yet.

Thanks for checking in with us,
Will keep updating as this develops.

Once again, with feeling, are Eventbrite's Terms of Service for Organizers:
In addition, events must be accurately and truthfully described when Organizer submits event information to the Site. If EVENTBRITE determines, in its sole discretion, that Organizer misrepresented an event or otherwise does not comply with this TOS, EVENTBRITE will have the right to cancel the relevant event (and all other events listed on the Site) and issue a refund to all Buyers.
And once again, with feeling, is the video featuring the party's promoter claiming that the event was a "hosted show," a term that did not appear in the original Eventbrite listing or in any of the press publicizing this event.  See image and video below.
