Ja Rule Apologizes for Fyre Festival Fiasco

"We are working tirelessly to ensure each guest leaves the island safely and ask for everyone's patience and cooperation as we continue to provide ongoing updates via email and our official social media channels as they become available, including refund information". I truly apologize as this is NOT MY FAULT ... but I'm taking responsibility.

People paid thousands of dollars for travel packages to the Exuma Cays to see performances from Major Lazer, Tyga, Pusha T, and Desiigner, but the festival was cancelled on Friday after complaints from ticket holders.

Travelers, who spent as much as $12,000 for a luxury music festival arrived in the Bahamian district of the Exumas expecting to find Fantasy Island, actually got a nightmare reality.

"We are working right now on getting everyone off the island safe that is my immediate concern", Ja Rule said. On April 28, 2017, Ja Rule posted a statement on Twitter, writing, "I'm heartbroken ... it was NOT A SCAM as everyone is reporting".

The Bahamian Ministry of Tourism, which is reportedly anxious about taking a hit with reports of looting, shooting, and a total lack of food and safety despite not being involved in the festival, is trying to help get stranded festival-goers off the island.

Yahoo Celebrity noted that the Fyre Festival, which was scheduled to begin tonight and to be held on a private island in the Bahamas, is now being postponed because it was not as advertised.

The band announced its decision on Twitter, saying they would not be performing at the Fyre Fest this weekend and next weekend.

She continued: "I feel so sorry and badly because this is something that I couldn't stand by, although of course if I would have known about the outcome, you would've known too". We ask that guests now on-island do not make their own arrangements to get to the airport as we are coordinating those plans. Guests started to arrive and the most basic function we take for granted in the USA, we said, 'Wow, we can't do this.' We were on a rush job to fix everything and guests were arriving and that caused check-in to be delayed.

But the wrath of social media was not kind to the celebs whose names were attached to the event.
