On Thursday, wealthy hipsters descended on the a private island in the Bahamas for the Fyre Festival, an event founded by Ja Rule that promised to be a "luxury experience." Expecting supermodels and glamping (glam camping. ugh.), the tributes were welcomed by a Hunger Games-like "disaster zone," with FEMA tents instead of cabanas, cheese sandwiches instead of gourmet food, and the US Embassy needing to help evacuate.
Needless to say, it was not what the kids expected, and forced rich people to experience less-than-ideal conditions.
A cabal of supermodels served as the hype squad for the first and last annual Fyre Festival, and the tributes thought they'd get to hang out with them if they just whipped out thousands of dollars.
