The ill fated Fyre Festival, a music event promising supermodels, live music and endless luxury on a private island in the Bahamas which ultimately bombed horribly, is the subject of two new documentaries that were released in the same week.

The two films, Netflix‘s ‘Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened‘ and Hulu‘s ‘Fyre Fraud,’ both cover the story behind the over hyped music festival/excursion geared toward millennials that took place in 2017 and ended in complete disaster. Both docs center around the brains behind the scam operation, Billy McFarland and his co-founder/rapper, Ja Rule.

Both Rule and McFarland were sued for $100 million in a class action lawsuit as a result of the failed festival that left attendees stranded on the island without basic necessities such as food, water and adequate sleeping arrangements. In addition to the class action lawsuit filed in May 2017, six federal and four individual lawsuits were filed in relation to the scheme.

McFarland was sentenced in October 2018 and is currently serving a six year federal prison sentence for charges related to the event as well as other fraud crimes associated with his business.

While Billy is serving jail time, Ja Rule is being crucified brutally on social media with followers dragging him all up and down his comments. The lynching started shortly after the respective documentaries went live on Hulu and Netflix last week, but it was a post that Ja shared related to one of the spotlighted victims in the documentary, MaryAnne Rolle that really set social media off.

My heart goes out to this lovely lady… MaryAnne Rolle we’ve never met but I’m devastated that something that was meant to be amazing, turn out to be such a disaster and hurt so many ppl… SORRY to anyone who has been negatively effected by the festival… Rule

Get into just some of the many comments below.

Ja took some time to respond to his critics.

It didn’t end there though! Since then Ja has made several posts and tweets non-FYRE related, and followers continue to troll him.

Yikes! there’s plenty more where that came from, just hit up his Twitter and Instagram comments for more scorching.
