An exclusive social event/music fests on a tropical paradise, surrounded by beautiful women, yachts, luxury lodgings, and great music acts.
When it was all said and done, the so-called Greatest Party Ever was nothing more than Tom Haverford’s biggest wet dream for Entertainment720 lol
– a MASSIVE bullshit mess, fueled by delusions of grandeur and powered by Instagram posts and FOMO.
The events of Fyre Fest were so outrageous, so surreal… that I seriously thought I was watching a MOCKumentary like American Vandal (awesome Netflix series!). It legit had me Googling shit, like “This can’t be real. Oh shit…this REALLY happened!” :O
Billy McFarland is more two-face scum than entrepreneur. He reminded me of Matt Damon’s character from The Talented Mr. Ripley. A handsome, charming, persuasive, sociopath liar who misled others by talking his way into High Places and bilking people out of their money.
The FUNNIEST part of this entire documentary was Ja Rule lol lol
Ja- fuckin -Rule!… of all people. I can’t HELP but CTFU on how lame this shit was and how JA RULE had his face plastered all over this! Somewhere, 50 Cent is LHMFAO at these events. I’m about to go follow Curtis on IG just to see his reactions 😛 😛 😛
According to JA RULE lol, the Good News about Fyre Festival was no one died. Sure, a few dozen people lost their jobs and hundreds of lives were ruined – but, Ja Rule says we should turn this into a POSITIVE.
Somewhere in all of this is a moral tale. But I’ll pass on morality. This shit is just too outrageous and funny lol
What’s REALLY messed up: At one point Billy McFarland told a gay staff member to “suck dick for water”. That was too sad be funny. I mean, you can be Gay But don’t be a bitch! geezus christ, smh…
Here are my main takeaways from this documentary….
FOMO is real:
Because in today’s world, ‘Likes’ and Comments matter. Your friends list is EVERYTHING. Like the Black Mirror episode ‘Nosedive‘, this generation’s entire self-validation is tied into social media ratings.
Social Media Influencers are powerful AF!:
Get a few hot bikini models to take professional photos in exotic locales and you can influence people to do ANYTHING. Kylie Jenner earned $250,000 just to post about the party! $$$$
People are Stupid:
Not to say that YOU are stupid, or I myself am stupid, or any random person on the street is stupid…but PEOPLE in general are prone to Stupid. Sure Billy is scum, but he can’t be blamed for everything. This shitstorm had red flags from the very beginning.
At some point self-responsibility HAS to matter. But even to the bitter end…Even after being indicted, Billy and his cronies were STILL trying to scam people with fake VIP passes! His homeboy was like, “Yo let’s turn this into GOLD, son!” – wooowwww
Fyre Festival was supposed to be THE party to end all parties; but in the end it was expensive cheese sandwiches and hurricane tents.
