The Fyre Festival, a "luxury" music festival in the Bahamas that was supposed to happen this week but fell apart because, well, it was a disaster, had a big name attached to it: co-organizer Ja Rule. Ja said the festival chaos was not his fault, but that hasn't stopped people from roasting him—and perhaps rightfully so.
Naturally, a good Ja Rule roast cannot exempt 50 Cent, Ja's longtime rap rival. 50 posted a meme on his Instagram insulting both Ja Rule and President Donald Trump.
This was far from the first meme inspired by the festival, which received its fair share of criticism on social media. And Ja Rule is far from the only celebrity being criticized for supporting Fyre Festival.
The festival was "fully postponed" due to lack of organization, no security, lack of funds, poor facilities, bad infrastructure, and much more. Despite the blowback, Ja Rule and the organizers released another statement on Sunday to reassure everyone that all guests were safe. They also revealed a form has been sent out to everyone who wanted a refund.
