Fyre Island Debacle Followup – Ja Rule’s 2017 Hunger Games Have Come To A Close #FyreFestival

The fallout from the failed #FyreFestival has been nothing short of spectacular. To recap; Ja Rule and some millennial promoter cobbled together an ill fated two weekend festival in the Bahamas. They advertised it using CGI or drawings with what it was supposed to look like, and charged $4K – $12K per person to attend. Then Ja and Millennial guy completely fumbled the ball – leaving thousands of trust-fund babies to play Hunger Games: Ja Rule edition.

Here’s the latest…

It’s obviously been canceled:

Ja Rule kind of apologized:

The other guy apologized and looks forward to the next iteration of the concert:

McFarland said that the island “didn’t have a really great infrastructure — there wasn’t a great way to get guests in here — we were a little bit ambitious.”

“There wasn’t water or sewage,” he continued. “It was almost like we tried building a city out of nothing and it took almost all of our personal resources to make this happen, and everything we had, to make this festival go on. We thought we were ready and built two different festival sites.”

On the morning of the festival, McFarland said a “bad storm came in and took down half of our tents and busted water pipes,” while guests began to arrive. That was when he said the organizers realized, “Wow, we can’t do this.”

“We were on a rush job to fix everything and guests were arriving and that caused check-in to be delayed,” he added. “We were overwhelmed and just didn’t have the foresight to solve all these problems.”

McFarland is hopeful that a Fyre Festival in 2018 will come to fruition, saying that make-up dates in May 2018 will be “free for everybody who signed up for this festival.”

An insider has spilled the beans on why this whole thing was doomed from the start:

On Wednesday, Ja Rule arrived for a “site visit.” I don’t know if he actually visited the “site” but he did spend a lot of time on a yacht, according to his Instagram. Meanwhile the event planners were holed up indoors putting together a game plan and a budget. With so little having been prepared ahead of time, the official verdict was that it would take $50 million to pull off. Planners also warned that it would be not be up to the standard they had advertised. The best idea, they said, would be to roll everyone’s tickets over to 2018 and start planning for the next year immediately. They had a meeting with the Fyre execs to deliver the news. A guy from the marketing team said, “Let’s just do it and be legends, man.” -NYmag

The Bahamas is doing damage control 

And reactions around the web have been nothing short of hilarious:

Lord of the Flies…

Now that we’ve all had a nice laughlet’s hope all those rich kids get home safely. Be on the lookout for overwrought cringeworthy stories from “Fyre Island Refugees” who just went through the height of human suffering…

    No doubt these pussyfied, self-assigned gender confused millennial snowflakes with pinko commie marxist shit for brains will fire up their twatter accounts when they reach their safe space in mom’s basement and blame Trump along with white males living in flyover america for having their feewhlings hurt. What a bunch of spoiled and utterly useless Crooked Hitlery groupies.

    I didn’t vote for Trump and as a disabled Air Force veteran I’m no snowflake either. Oh and if my candidate had went into office and did even a quarter of what Trump has done I would be quick to admit I made a mistake. I wouldn’t continue to condone the selfish, greedy, snake oil salesman and real estate mogul whom made money off the housing crisis when people lost their homes. Just in case you have heart disease, asthma, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, cancer or any number of pre existing conditions get ready to lose your insurance unless you’re a Congressman or can afford to pay for health care without insurance. He is still friends with the Clintons too and if you can’t see that, I’m very sorry for you.

    sarcrilege, pretty sure they must rich entitled Trust fund babies whose who voted for Trump. Only someone who voted for Trump could have their level of ignorance and cluelessness. They don’t know how to fend for themselves since they had their rich parents pay someone to do everything for them.

    Honestly one of the biggest complaints among “millennials” is about being in student loan debt and and struggling with having jobs with low paying wages. How would they be able to afford the ticket if they are struggling with paying off their loans?
