We can hardly imagine it’s been virtually two years since Fyre Festival, the scam of the century, unraveled in entrance of our eyes, however with competing documentaries from Netflix and Hulu letting us relive the insanity once more, we realized Fyre’s legacy (and people notorious cheese sandwiches) by no means actually left our hearts to start with. With the pageant’s co-founder, Billy McFarland, appearing in the Hulu documentary to inform his aspect of the story earlier than he was sentenced to prison for fraud, the different founder, Ja Rule, refused to seem in both of the docs and has remained fairly silent with this new media blitz. That is, till now.
On Sunday afternoon, the rapper went on an extended tweeting spree to defend himself from Fyre’s critics, insisting that he by no means arrange the pageant as a rip-off. In truth, he is the actual sufferer of all the pieces that went down on that fateful spring weekend, even when some insiders allege he is aware of greater than he’s letting on. “I too was hustled, scammed, bamboozled, hood winked, lead astray!!!” he wrote. “Haha good strive homie you ain’t getting the products over Twitter… however I’ll inform my reality actual quickly… AND I HAVE RECEIPTS!!!”
McFarland, who was called a “serial fraudster” by his choose for orchestrating a $26 million rip-off, shall be in jail for the subsequent six years. Honestly, we simply hope Rule’s receipts result in a 3rd documentary. Perhaps on Amazon Prime.
