Fyre Festival: Ja Rule Says It’s Not His Fault, But He’ll Take Responsibility

Fyre Festival was intended to be a luxurious weekend full of partying and luxurious life at the beach. Kendall Jenner, Hailey Baldwin, Emily Ratajkowski and Bella Hadid even broadcasted the event through their social media channels. Everything sounded great, until the music festival itself. After a disaster of epic proportions, Ja Rule and the festival have responded.

Ja Rule pens:

We are working right now on getting everyone of the island SAFE that is my immediate concern… 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…

Fyre also made a statement:

Fyre Festival set out to provide a once-in-a-lifetime musical experience on the Islands of the Exumas.

Due to circumstances out of our control, the physical infrastructure was not in place on time and we are unable to fulfill on that vision safely and enjoyably for our guests. At this time, we are working tirelessly to get flights scheduled and get everyone off of Great Exuma and home safely as quickly as we can. We ask that guests currently on-island do not make their own arrangements to get to the airport as we are coordinating those plans. We are working to place everyone on complimentary charters back to Miami today; this process has commenced and the safety and comfort of our guests is our top priority.

The festival is being postponed until we can further assess if and when we are able to create the high- quality experience we envisioned.

We ask for everyone’s patience and cooperation during this difficult time as we work as quickly and safely as we can to remedy this unforeseeable situation. We will continue to provide regular updates via email to our guests and via our official social media channels as they become available.
