17 hilarious reactions to the Fyre Festival debacle that's sweeping the internet

What a disaster.

THE PUNCHLINE OF the internet this week has undoubtedly been Fyre Festival.

Ja Rule and his business partner set up the luxury festival and it was due to get going this week in the Bahamas.

But quite literally everything has gone wrong:

It cost $3,495 for a ticket (with some going waaaay beyond that) – and from the food to the celebrity endorsements, it’s all gone to shite.

And of course the internet has gone in hard on the whole debacle:

1. The sheer amount of things that have gone wrong makes this the biggest train wreck of 2017

Worth a Google – or just read this breakdown.

2. There was a certain amount of schadenfreude given the demographic who signed up for it

3. Who was running this?

4. Ja Rule has made the 1% a laughing stock

5. The lack of supplies was also a major talking point and inspiration for jokes

6. Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski and other influencers had promoted the festival when it was launched last year – so they’ve been the subject of so many jokes overnight

It’s the “luxury party that turned into the hunger games”:
