Billy McFarland’s recent tweet defending his decision to work rather than sit in jail has reignited talk of a potential Fyre Festival II and left Twitter users buzzing with anticipation (and snarky comments).
Ja Rule’s partner in crime and Fyre Festival co-founder, Billy McFarland, has taken to Twitter to discuss his future plans. In a now-deleted tweet, McFarland responded to a fan’s question of why he “shouldn’t be in jail” with the sassy retort, “It’s in the best interest of those I owe for me to be working. People aren’t getting paid back if I sit on the couch and watch TV. And because I served my time.”
As if the dumpster fire that was Fyre Festival wasn’t enough, McFarland’s tweet has sparked rumors of a potential Fyre Festival II. Users on Twitter were quick to jump on the bandwagon, joking about the possibility of another epic fail. Satvik Sethi, CEO of Join Circle, even offered his planning services with the quip, “If you need any help with planning, there’s a great documentary on this!”
Other users offered their services as well, with one individual volunteering to bring 100 crates of bananas to ensure no one went hungry this time around. And let’s not forget about the highly-anticipated sequel to the Fyre Festival documentary. “I’m just waiting for the documentary sequel,” said one Twitter user.
Last year, McFarland broke his silence on the disastrous festival during an interview on Good Morning America. He admitted to being “wrong” for going through with the festival and making bad decisions along the way. McFarland expressed regret for letting people down and acknowledged the trust he violated with investors, employees, and friends.
It remains to be seen what McFarland has up his sleeve, but one thing’s for sure: Twitter is here for the drama.
🔥 Fyre Festival II is finally happening.
Tell me why you should be invited.
