What drew so many moneyed millennials to this hilariously fitting fate? Well, Fyre Festival was promoted by Instagram-famous models like Bella Hadid, as well as Kendall Jenner—remember her last marketing job? I think it had something to do with soda. But the mastermind behind the entire thing was none other than Ja Rule, a rapper perhaps most famous for beefing with Wikipedia about how they supposedly shaved a few inches off his height.

Well, when it came time to accept responsibility, Ja Rule didn't disappoint.

Honestly, though—why should Ja Rule be sorry? If anything, he's a hero.

As far as con artistry goes, this is like a drop in the bucket compared to everything Donald Trump has done over the years. Between his non-apologies and his broken promises, Ja Rule could conquer the political world in no time.
