Fyre Festival

Ja Rule broke out the thesaurus and Twitter broke out the memes.

Prosecutors had sought a sentence of 15–20 years, describing McFarland in their sentencing memorandum as "the consummate con artist."

But his partner, Ja Rule, maintains that the "idea was fucking beyond brilliant."

Billy McFarland allegedly sold nearly $100,000 in bogus tickets to exclusive events such as Coachella, the Grammy Awards, and a dinner with LeBron James.

I cast a spell on (Ja Rule).

Federal prosecutors accused Billy McFarland of promising a "'life-changing' music festival," when instead he delivered "a disaster."

"We're not firing anybody, we're just letting you know there will be no payroll in the short term," Billy McFarland said.

She's v apologetic.

"You always have to be upping your game because the competition is so fierce."

The college dropout from New Jersey has a knack for promising lavish and luxurious services aimed at rich and elite clientele, often falling short on what was pledged.

Ja Rule, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?

"When you go to Fyre Festival expecting Ja Rule, but it turns out to be Ashanti town."

"Time to fyre your agent, Kendall."

"CUT MY TRUST FUND INTO PIECES. I WAS PROMISED A RESORT."

Ja Rule, who helped organize the festival, said the festival was not intended to be a scam, and that he’s working to refund guests’ money.
