Fyre Festival Organizer Billy McFarland Has Been Released From Prison Early

May 19, 2022 / Posted by:

Back in 2017, Billy McFarland (with the help of Ja Rule, and numerous models) created one of the greatest grifts of the 21st Centrury, the Fyre Festival. The luxury music festival that duped people out of tons of money to watch Ja Rule perform on an island, but instead found themselves trapped on an island with next to zero accommodations, no Ja Rule, and nothing more than a take-away plate of food that looks like it was brought in from the nearest hospital cafeteria. Billy eventually got arrested on fraud charges and was subsequently sentenced to six years in prison. All of us probably figured that Billy’s sentence would stick, and he’d be chowing down on some Fyre Festival-ish cold processed cheese sandwiches in the big house for six whole years. But as it turns out, Billy was just released from prison, that six-year sentence be damned.

The Class Action Fyre Festival Lawsuit Has Settled For $2 Million

April 16, 2021 / Posted by:

Back in 2017, the now-infamous Fyre Festival went off with the wettest of explosions. Like if a shart was a social event, every single thing that could have possibly gone wrong with the music festival imploded around organizers while head honcho of the clusterfuck, Billy McFarland, scrambled. The result was Billy going to prison and attendees filing a class action lawsuit for $100 million against the organizers. The lawsuit has finally been settled, but the attendees aren’t getting anywhere near $100 million. The lawsuit was settled for $2 million.

Andy “The Blowjob” King Has A New, Much Younger Boyfriend

July 17, 2020 / Posted by:

Fyre Festival employee of the year (OK, 3.5 months) Andy King announced on Instagram that “it only took 58 years to find true love.” According to People, Andy, whose claim to fame was demonstrating a high level of dedication to his professional responsibilities and a gag reflex that just won’t quit, has a new gentleman in his life, 26-year-old Craig McBlain. If I’m doing the math right, and I’m probably not, that means Andy spent 32 of those 58 years waiting for Craig to be born.

Kendall Jenner Has Agreed To Pay Back $90,000 For Promoting The Fyre Festival

May 21, 2020 / Posted by:

The Fyre Festival is now but a distant memory (or a continued nightmare, if you’re one of the poor souls who has Post-Traumatic Cheese Toast Disorder). But as we all likely remember, the 2017 Fyre Festival became an unmitigated disaster due to the perfect storm of under-planning by the scammers who created it, and over-hype by the models paid to promote it. Kendall Jenner was one such model who was paid to promote the festival on social media, and now a judge is forcing her to return some of that money.

Billy McFarland, The Fyre Festival Guy, Wants Out Of Prison Early Because Of Coronavirus

April 16, 2020 / Posted by:

Tekashi 6ix9ine. Bill Cosby. R. Kelly. What do all of these stunning examples of human men have in common? They want out of prison early so they don’t go the way of convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein and catch coronavirus. Tekashi’s the only one who actually succeeded, but I guess that was enough to inspire the Fyre Festival con artist guy, Billy McFarland, to petition for an early release. Billy’s been serving his six-year sentence for wire fraud since the end of 2018.
