Ja Rule and Fyre Festival Organizers Hit With $100 Million Lawsuit
After the Fyre Festival, which was billed as a luxury weekend of opulence in the Bahamas, ended in disaster, it's not surprising that now organizers are being hit with a class action lawsuit, to the tune of $100 million.
The festival was organized by Ja Rule and entrepreneur Billy McFarland. Shortly after the break down of the festival, Ja Rule issued a statement saying the chaos and disorganization was not his fault but he takes responsibility.
“We are working right now on getting everyone of[f] the island SAFE that is my immediate concern,” Ja Rule wrote. “I will make a statement soon I’m heartbroken at this moment my partners and I wanted this to be an amazing event it was NOT A SCAM as everyone is reporting I don’t know how everything went so left but I’m working to make it right by making sure everyone is refunded… I truly apologize as this is NOT MY FAULT… but I’m taking responsibility I’m deeply sorry to everyone who was inconvenienced by this…"
According to iBankCoin.com, a plaintiff named Daniel Jung has now filed a class action lawsuit.
“The festival’s lack of adequate food, water, shelter, and medical care created a dangerous and panicked situation among attendees—suddenly finding themselves stranded on a remote island without basic provisions—that was closer to The Hunger Games or Lord of the Flies than Coachella,” reads part of Jung’s claim.
