Ja Rule has finally responded to the backlash following the release of two documentaries about the Fyre Festival.
The docs aired on Hulu and Netflix respectively and had many viewers questioning why rapper Ja Rule, co-founder of the festival, appeared to get off scot-free.
"I love how ppl [sic] watch a doc and think they have all the answers," he wrote.
"I had an amazing vision to create a festival like NO OTHER!!! I would NEVER SCAM or FRAUD anyone what sense does that make???"
Ja Rule claimed that Billy McFarland, co-founder of Fyre, was paid by Hulu and that F*ck Jerry were paid by Netflix for their involvement in the documentaries and claimed that he never received any money from Fyre.
Ja Rule was seen in the Netflix video giving team member's a pep talk during a conference call:
"Let's think of how to dig ourselves out of this sh*t, man. We didn't kill anybody, nobody got hurt. We made a mistake, we'll get past it," he tells them.
When asked by a staff member whether the team will go down for fraud, he denied that they had committed fraud, instead, he referred to their actions as "false advertising."
After going back and forth with followers on Twitter, he posted an image of the caterer, Maryann Rolle, who was scammed by the organizers who hired her to cater the event and never paid her.
