The Fyre Festival is facing even more heat!
As we’ve reported, the failed “luxury” music festival organized by Ja Rule and tech entrepreneur Billy McFarland was “fully postponed” after concertgoers arrived to embarrassingly horrendous conditions on the Exuma island of the Bahamas on Friday.
For many of the attendees, the Fyre experience was sold to them via the likes of Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski, Hailey Baldwin, and other high-profile influencers (AKA Instagram models) who promoted it on social media.
For instance, take a look at this now-laughable marketing video for the “transformative weekend” (below):
And then there’s this ~now-deleted~ post from the KUWTK star’s page:
First Pepsi, now this!! You should probably fyre whoever is putting you up for these gigs, bb!
Here’s what people had to say on Twitter about the shit show (hint: it’s not pretty):
google “Fyre Festival” if you’re in the mood to laugh at rich people and Instagram models today
