Jim Jones Has a Weird Connection to All of This Fyre Festival Madness

Does he even know he's in Netflix's Fyre Festival documentary?

In case you’ve been living under a rock or somewhere where you don’t have Twitter, Netflix and Hulu released two very good documentaries about the notorious scam that was Fyre Festival. A little background on the situation:

Back in the spring of 2017, influencers flocked to a private island for what they were told was a “luxury music festival” that was meant to promote Billy McFarland’s Fyre music booking app. McFarland was an entrepreneur who had been at the helm of a few business ventures, but this was next level.

The whole event was tailor-made for Instagram, and it wasn’t long before models like Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid and Emily Ratajkowski were promoting the event. Oh, yeah, and there was Ja Rule, too.

Anyway, the festival was, to put it lightly, a disaster, and instead of 5-star accommodations and gourmet meals punctuated by A-List performers, the attendees (who paid tens of thousands of dollars to be there) were put up in FEMA tents…

And given meals that looked like this:

And then, every performer pulled out and the attendees were basically trapped on an island.
