Ja Rule apologizes to Fyre Festival caterer after Netflix doc

Ja Rule apologizes to Fyre Festival caterer after Netflix doc

Rolle went viral after her appearance in Netflix's Fyre Fest documentary. I am here as a Bahamian. "That was my goal".

Despite the whole mess that was Fyre Festival, a small bit of good news has recently come to light, with local caterers raising over $120k from a GoFundMe campaign.

"I'm at the airport on Thursday morning (of the festival) when I got the call", Maryann recalled.

She said she also provided housing on site after organizers told her the grounds "aren't ready" and asked her last-minute to help. To see nobody return to say let me take care of what she has done. 24 hours. I had to literally pay all those people.

Despite encountering a hoard of hungry rich kids, Maryann and her staff made it happen. But in the documentary, she revealed that she was never paid for her services. "I am here as a Bahamian and they stand in my face every day". "We had a lot of food, it's just that we weren't prepared because I would have had a couple grills out on the beach".

"I wasn't working for this one, I was working on our future goals with Fyre", she said.

Have Seth Crossno and Mark Thompson been paid the US$5 million in damages they were awarded from suing Fyre Festival co-founder Billy McFarland? . Now, Fyre Festival co-founder Ja Rule has responded to the pair of films, as well as criticism about his involvement with the affair.

"I'm devastated that something that was meant to be unbelievable, turn out to be such a disaster and hurt so many", he wrote.

For those unfamiliar, Fyre Festival was supposed to be a lavish music experience on an island that was costing those who chose to attend thousands of dollars. "Rule", he wrote on Instagram.

Ja had enough, however, and hit Twitter to tell all of those who were criticizing his efforts that they didn't really know anything and that the documentary only told half of the story. I don't know if he was aware of the pain and hard work that I went through because he was in the front line of everything but I am glad he is aware of it and he did apologize so that in itself speaks volumes.

However, apologies don't pay bills.

"If he's sorry he should be donating something to me because "sorry" is more than a word, it's action, so I hope he puts his "sorry" into action", said Rolle.

Two days later, on January 16, Calloway said she would be resuming the seminars and started selling $20 T-shirts with the words: "Stop Hate-Following Me, Kayleigh". Because they'd already spent all the money that people paid, it was impossible for them to give refunds, and McFarland, a clear narcissist, didn't want to admit that this was a failure.
