Rolle went on to add that in addition to the expenses incurred by feeding the on-site staff, the rooms at the resort were also completely booked up by festival workers.
The rapper is referring to the ethical quandaries that have surrounded both documentaries since their release.
While some commentors have questioned whether it's truly Rolle behind the GoFundMe, it appears to be legitimate - an executive producer of Netflix's "Fyre", Gabrielle Bluestone, linked to the GoFundMe on Twitter. Hulu's documentary does, however, point out that Ja Rule turned down the opportunity to be interviewed for theirs, whilst Netflix's one never mentions it. "I won't watch more than one". Here are some of the unique perspectives of each film. "Basically that was taking on the whole Fyre operation under my wings".
Now that two entirely different documentaries exist on the subject, Ja Rule is back on the task of clearing his name of any disproportionate slander.
Attendees who spent thousands of dollars wound up in an island with none of the promised food, water, luxury villas or music that were advertised.
The rapper has claimed no wrongdoing for his part in the disastrous festival that left Fyre employees and local Bahamians in massive debt.
For Influencer Culture 101: Hulu People in their 20s and mid 30s who watched Fyre Fraud probably didn't need some of the on-the-nose stock footage and cartoons that are included to illustrate millennial and influencer culture. Maryann and her crew, like many others on the island, didn't receive pay from festival organizers.
Two documentaries detailing the catastrophic failure of Fyre Festival were released last week, with both Netflix's FYRE and Hulu's FYRE FRAUD charting the rise and fall of the ill-fated festival. "We made a mistake, we'll get past it".
"We were aware of [the Hulu production] because we were supposed to film Billy McFarland for an interview", Smith said according to The Ringer. At the same time, Netflix's Fyre was produced in partnership with the social media agency Jerry Media (a.k.a F-Jerry), who were involved in putting Fyre Festival on in the first place. "SORRY to anyone who has been negatively effected by the festival..."
There is also footage in the Netflix doc from after the festival, in which the rapper tells Fyre employees of the fest, "That's not fraud, that's not fraud".
