Ja Rule insists those who have watched the Netflix and Hulu Fyre Festival documentaries do not have a full scope of what happened.
The infamous music festival promised its attendees a luxurious and once-in-a-lifetime experience at a hefty price point. Organized by Billy McFarland and Rule, the ever was postponed and subsequently cancelled after concertgoers had arrived.
Two documentaries, Hulu’s “Fyre Fraud” and Netflix’s “Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened”, have brought a lot of unwanted attention Rule’s way.
“I had an amazing vision to create a festival like no other! I would never scam or fraud anyone,” he insisted Sunday on Twitter. “What sense does that make?”
“I too was hustled, scammed, bamboozled, hoodwinked, lead astray!” he insisted. He accused both Hulu and Netflix of breaking ethical codes. “Hulu PAID BILLY! That money should’ve [gone] to the Bahamian people. Netflix paid [Instagram influencer] F**kJerry, the same guys that did the promo for the festival.”
The rapper began back-and-forth dialogues with fans who had plenty of questions.
He apologized for the failure of Fyre festival in a 2017 tweet, but refused to take responsibility for the disaster.
