Also, it is worth noting that the Netflix doc was produced in part by Jerry Media, who did the social media for Fyre, and that Hulu paid Billy McFarland $200,000 for their interview.

"I literally had to pay all those people".

"So it's impossible for me to TRUST someone with my vision and them completely f**k it up???"

The page, which has been verified as genuine, has a target of $123,000 to help Maryann Rolle, who appeared in a highly publicized Netflix documentary released last week about the infamous luxury music festival that turned into Hunger Games-like conditions for visitors.

The 17 Best Oscar-Nominated Movies on Netflix by Rotten Tomatoes Score
Spike Lee is finally getting some love at the Oscars , an honour Thor Diakow from Breakfast Television says is much deserved. Both films are up for best director and best picture , a first for streaming giant Netflix for Roma .

Ms Rolle, who runs the Exuma Point Bar and Grille, said: "My life was changed forever, and my credit was ruined by Fyre Fest". "My only resource today is to appeal for help", the couple wrote. What happened on Great Exuma just highlights how most people treat this area of the world. When someone pointed out that they had actually watched both documentaries, the rapper replied, "And you still don't know s-t". "If we wanna go fuckin' see the pigs, we go see the pigs".

Described as a luxury concert of sorts, the festival was meant to be held on the Bahamian island of Great Exuma, and was supposed to have been headlined by the likes of Blink-182 - who famously pulled out before it was due to start.

Some even asked Ja Rule to tell the story himself, that didn't gain any traction online as he continued to defend himself. "I too was hustled, scammed, bamboozled, hood winked, lead astray!" he later added.

But he apologised to Ms Rolle for any pain the venture might have caused.

Chelsea players trust Maurizio Sarri and his methods, says David Luiz
Arsenal boss Unai Emery told Mesut Ozil to be ready to play against Chelsea before leaving the midfielder on the bench at the Emirates.

He wrote: "My heart goes out to this lovely lady..." "We've never met, but I'm devastated that something that was meant to be so unbelievable turned out to be such a disaster and hurt so many people". SORRY to anyone who has been negatively [affected] by the festival...

Gabrielle Bluestone, the executive producer of Fyre, later took to Twitter and confirmed that the fundraiser was authentic and said that all proceeds would go directly to her (Maryann). Because they really, really, really hurt me. To see nobody return to say let me take care of what she has done.

But she was not the only worker to be left unpaid. The festival was marketed through popular influencers using their Instagram platforms to sell this "FOMO" (fear of missing out) on an island experience that would get their followers to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on villas and other island tour packages that did not exist.

The Netflix documentary featured footage of a team-wide call, where Ja Rule is heard saying the festival was bad publicity that they would all have to get through.
