Fyre Co-founder Ja Rule Says He Was An Innocent Victim Of The Fyre Festival Fiasco

January 21, 2019 / Posted by:

Ja Rule and Shaggy are going to go on tour together and I’ve got tickets to sell you! $500 gets you the full VIP experience, only Shaggy’s going to drop out the night before, and the concert is just Ja Rule standing on a rickety stage lip-syncing It Wasn’t Me for his life. That’s kind of what’s happening in the wake of the twin Fyre Festival documentaries, Fyre Fraud and Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened that aired on Hulu and Netflix respectively over the weekend.

Anyone who’s seen either doc, or remembers watching the events unfold in real time, knows that Ja Rule’s name was effectively synonymous with the Fyre Festival. And while he wasn’t imprisoned for doing white man crimes like committing wire fraud and defrauding investors like his co-founder Billy McFarland, it’s clear that Ja had enough knowledge about what was going on to declare in a post-fiasco staff meeting at Fyre HQ (as seen in the Netflix doc), “that’s not fraud. That is, uh… I would call that… false advertising.” You know, tomato/one sad slice, in the sand, with those big island ants crawling all over it, of tomato.

Ja #tooktotwitter to let the people know he’s innocent in all this!

This is MLK day in America, folks. Ja Rule misquoting Malcolm X as a defense for organizing and producing a fraudulent event where the real victims were the Bahamian workers who were left holding the bag. But don’t worry, even though he’s without blame, that doesn’t mean he’s without feelings.

But mostly he’s innocent.

Oh joy, a third Frye Festival documentary produced by Ja Rule, featuring Ja Rule. Sounds riveting. Maybe he can get Blink 182 to write the score. Where can I buy tickets? Anybody have a link? Why do I have the feeling that Ja Rule keeps his receipts wadded up in his wallet and only takes them out when he needs to spit out his gum?

But as I said before, innocent as he is, Ja’s still got a heart. The Netflix doc featured the Bahamian owner of the Exuma Point Resort, Maryann Rolle, who housed and fed hundreds of Fyre guests and organizers daily but never got paid. Ja feels bad for her.

Ja does have a point. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Elliot Tebele, the founder of the media company Fuck Jerry, who were in charge of promotion for the event, was the executive producer of theN Netflix documentary. See, Ja is a truth teller and justice seeker. To his credit, Elliot claims he’s donated all the fees Fuck Jerry earned from working on the festival to Maryann’s GoFund me page.

No word yet on if the incredibly innocent and ignorant of any wrongdoing Ja Rule, has contributed in any way. Maybe he’s planning on paying Maryanne to appear in his Fyre documentary tentatively called It Was The White Boy.
