Unpaid Fyre Festival caterer receives $200K donation after Netflix documentary

Unpaid Fyre Festival caterer receives $200K donation after Netflix documentary

Netflix and Hulu recently released documentaries recounting the rise and demise of the disastrous 2017 Fyre Festival that never was, along with detailing the actions of those involved.

"I hope we can come together and undo some of the damage financially and emotionally done by some of the worst types of people". I am here as a Bahamian.

"I love how ppl watch a doc and think they have all the answers..." he began.

The film lays out the timeline for the doomed festival experience and illustrates how it went from an idea, to reality, to the "greatest party that never happened". As owner of the Exuma Point Restaurant, Rolle was hired to feed all of the staffers on the island who were brought on to construct the festival site. Organizers turned to them for catering after blowing through their food budget. "I just leave it alone because it really pains me when I have to talk about it, so I just wipe it away". Only for the staffing with the food. Yes.

Rolle had a staff of 10 working around the clock - all of whom had to be paid, even when the festival fell through leaving punters stranded.

Almost two years later, the Rolles say they haven't heard a peep from anyone connected to Fyre Media or the festival.

Both Fyre Fest documentaries showed how few people seem to have sympathy for young people who got conned out of their money over promises of capturing ideal Instagram shots.

But she was not the only worker to be left unpaid.

The documentary videographer captures Roefaro telling McFarland, "Just try to keep me out of your stuff, because I can't say anything". J.R. said he had to move out of his home to avoid threats to his family. It follows the utter debacle that was the 2016 music festival organised by rapper Ja Rule and entrepreneur Billy McFarland.

In a flurry of tweets, Ja Rule maintains that he was also scammed and lost lots of money. It's very hard to watch, especially given the festival's co-founder, Billy McFarland, is now serving time for festival-related fraud charges and has claimed he is bankrupt. He was sentenced in October to six years in prison. I betrayed the trust of my investors, customers, family and the court.

Ja had enough, however, and hit Twitter to tell all of those who were criticizing his efforts that they didn't really know anything and that the documentary only told half of the story.

His lawyer, Randall Jackson, argued McFarland committed the crimes because of an undiagnosed mental disorder, which led to mania and possible delusions of grandeur.

"I understand how good business should work, so I was in agreement".
