Ja Rule Is Simply APPALLED By The Fyre Festival Documentaries

By now, everyone knows the circumstances of Fyre Festival thanks to not one, but two documentaries (on Netflix and Hulu) about that utter and complete dumpster fire.

If you haven’t been paying attention, Fyre Festival was supposed to be a luxury music festival in the Bahamas that was meant to promote Fyre Media’s music booking app. Planned by Fyre Media CEO Billy McFarland and rapper Ja Rule, tickets to the festival were priced from $500-$1500 (and that doesn’t include the offered “VIP Packages”) where attendees were promised luxury accommodations, celebrity guests, and high-end cuisine from celebrity chefs. Instead, people got a bunch of local no-name bands, refugee tents, and cheese sandwiches that had probably been in deep-freeze since the Clinton administration.

McFarland and Ja Rule were both sued as part of a class action lawsuit and McFarland was sentenced to six years in prison.  Now, we have two documentaries that reveal all the dirty details of this massive shit storm. But no one, NO ONE was more shocked by the documentaries than Ja Rule himself.

Despite being one of the organizers, promoters, and co-defendant in this garbage dump event, Ja Rule insists that this is totally NOT his fault! HE was a victim, too! Here’s one of his tweets in response:

Yeah… Ja Rule, quoting Malcolm X is not going to make anyone feel sorry for you.

Ja Rule might claim that he never saw any money from this heist, but he certainly didn’t lose any money, unlike Bahamas restaurant owner Maryann Rolle. Rolle shelled out $50,000 of her own money to help feed the famished concert-goers who had been left by the festival organizers with no provisions. She still hasn’t been reimbursed.

Put your money where your mouth is, Ja Rule. If you’re as sorry as you say you are for what happened, pony on up.
