Ja Rule’s Fyre Festival Is In A State Of Chaos — & Twitter Is LIVING For The Drama!

Ja Rule has some ‘splainin’ to do!

Fans are labeling the Put It On Me singer’s Fyre Festival a total hoax as the “luxurious” getaway in the Bahamas is not living up to expectations. Reports of chaos at the fest began trickling in on Thursday, when ticket-holders arrived at (what appeared to be) an unfinished campsite. Apparently, the upscale “cabanas” promised to the attendees were actually just disaster relief tents.

Oh, and don’t even get us started on the food. It’s said the guests were given slices of bread with cheese for dinner. Say it ain’t so.

Don’t believe us?? Ch-ch-check out what some people on the ground posted to Twitter about the fest:

Then, later in the evening, headliners Blink-182 canceled their scheduled performance as they defended that they couldn’t guarantee “the quality of performances we always give fans.” What a mess.

We don’t blame the ticket-holders for being pissed about the poor conditions as they supposedly spent anywhere between $1,000 to $12,000 to attend the fest. Eek.

The drama didn’t stop there as the festival faced another issue when planes scheduled to depart Miami for the new event were grounded. Reportedly, airline representatives told festival-goers that the island was over capacity. The Fyre Festival has since released a statement on Instagram about the chaotic situation (below).

Things got off to an unexpected start at day one of Fyre Festival. FOR THOSE CURRENTLY ON GREAT EXUMA We are working to comfortably accommodate guests and deliver a great experience. If you have needs, please head to the “BLUE HOUSE” on the main festival site. Security, first aid, and Fyre Festival staff are here to assist immediately, 24/7. FOR THOSE WITH PENDING TRAVEL TO THE EXUMAS TOMORROW Due to circumstances beyond our control, and in line with a culture of safety, all inbound charter flights to the Exumas have been canceled. Your ticket and any funds uploaded to your RFID band will be refunded. Thank you for bearing with us as we work through the growing pains that every first year event experiences. Revised itinerary information will be shared soon for the remainder of this weekend and weekend two.A post shared by FYRE FESTIVAL (@fyrefestival) on Apr 27, 2017 at 11:20pm PDT

Sucks to suck. Of course, many people have since DRAGGED the fest over this crazzzzzy situation as several people on Twitter teased:

HIGHlarious! Although, we bet Ja Rule and festival co-creator Billy McFarland are kicking themselves right about now
