Over the past week, social media has been buzzing following the premieres of both Netflix (Fyre) and Hulu’s (Fyre Fraud) respective documentaries on the disastrous Fyre Festival in 2017. Founded by Billy McFarland and Ja Rule, the former is currently serving a six-year sentence for reportedly defrauded investors of $26 million, while the Murder Inc. rapper took to Twitter on Sunday (Jan. 20) to defend himself as viewers pointed their finger at Ja Rule for his part in the festival that scammed hundreds of fans and drained local businesses out of millions.

I love how ppl watch a doc and think they have all the answers,” tweeted Ja. “I had an amazing vision to create a festival like NO OTHER!!! I would NEVER SCAM or FRAUD anyone what sense does that make???

During the Twitter rant Ja Rule claimed he was also a victim too, citing that both Hulu and Netflix used unethical practices in their documentaries. McFarland was paid to appear in Hulu’s feature, while Jerry Media, the social media firm behind the Fyre Festival marketing and promotion, produced the Netflix special.

I too was hustled, scammed, bamboozled, hood winked, lead astray,” said the Queens rapper. “@Hulu PAID BILLY!!! That money should have went to the ppl in the Bahamas… @netflix PAID fuck Jerry who also did all the promo for the festival… 🤔 the docs clearly have Billy at fault but let’s blame the rapper lmao ok…
