Ja Rule Apologizes For Fyre Festival Fiasco

In what was either a nightmare for entitled 20-somethings, to humor on the end of watching the Fyre Festival flatline, Ja Rule sends out an apologetic tweet. 

In case you missed the fiasco last week, a Festival that was out of the country, that was supposed to be a Coachella of sorts, was massively one of those moments where "You buy it online" and "you don't get what you paid for / it's not quality."

The Fyre Festival, which was plugged by the likes of Ja Rule, and certain celebrities with paid endorsements like Kendall Jenner, was basically a FEMA or Refugee Camp, and the glorious "gourmet cooked" food turned out to be cheese misplaced on sad looking bread.

The dinner that @fyrefestival promised us was catered by Steven Starr is literally bread, cheese, and salad with dressing. #fyrefestival

Guests who paid the cap of $1K to $12K were absolutely furious, and most unloaded their frustrations on Twitter. After all the disasters, and all of the reports that the festival was a complete sham to collect money (and some joked that Ja Rule was behind the hustle) he sent out the following tweets - obviously after some of the chaos had settled.

Relieved to share that all guest are safe, and have been sent the form to apply for a refund. Our deepest apologies... #fyrefestival


The Fyre Festival site was wiped and has been replaced with an apology, which you can read here.

For those who weren't directly affected by this, it was honestly very funny to see some of the tweets that came through bashing the event, only because a lot of random "rich kids" got to taste what people struggle with every day in the real world. Check out some of the tweets below:

The #fyrefestival is 100% a scam designed to teach ignorant rich kids to care about the refugee crisis.

FyreFestival is an art installation where mediocre people realize what their lives would be like without rich parents.

We heard some horror stories from out there. They got IG models trading sponsored posts for 1 blanket and half of a mango. #FyreFestival
