You remember Fyre Festival, right?
If not, here is a quick rundown;
The festival was a fraudulent luxury music festival founded by Billy McFarland, CEO of Fyre Media Inc. and rapper Ja Rule. The music event was scheduled to take place in 2017 on the Bahamian Island of Great Exuma. Although, instead of experiencing an extremely plush, celebrity-filled event, attendees paid thousands of dollars and received prepackaged sandwiches and FEMA tents as their accommodation. It sounds just as awful as it looked. The failed festival went viral and Hulu and Netflix even made documentaries to tell the tragic story.
Years later, a 2017 Instagram post promoting the failed music festival will now cost Kendall Jenner $90,000. Reportedly, Jenner was paid $275,000 for the Instagram post promoting the festival.
According to Jenner, in an interview she said she didn’t realize the festival would be a scam and disaster until it ultimately ended up being.
Apparently, the festival claimed that Jenner would be hosting an exclusive yacht party. Tickets were $10,000 per person.
