The Fyre Fest debacle was a glorious time for 50 Cent.
Fif tried to recreate the fun when he got word that Kanye West's Sunday Service in Baton Rouge had a Fyre Fest-like catering debacle:
"I thought I was hustling, this n*gga selling $55 pancakes," 50 mocked.
Fif quickly deleted the post.
Perhaps that's because the catering company has said it wasn't Ye's fault.
"The catering company acknowledges it did not provide adequate food for ONE attendee and a social media post went viral. Kanye West and the Sunday Service collective should be disassociated with such claims surrounding the food at the event," sources told TMZ
According to TMZ, Kanye didn't profit from the catering snafu and had done the entire Sunday Service for free, including covering the costs to get the choir to Louisana.
In a social media post, Lauryn's Fine Catering acknowledged the issues may have affected more than one attendee and blamed organizers other than Kanye for what happened.

Like much of the city, we were excited about the opportunity to be a part of Kanye West’s Sunday Service and Brunchella. We were contacted only 28 hours prior to the event, after the $55 price had been set by the organizers, not Lauryn’s Fine Catering. We agreed to assist the local organizers with providing a breakfast buffet for over 2,000 guests. While we typically do not fulfill large, full-service orders with less than a month’s notice, we chose to assist the organizers whom we believed to be affiliated with Kanye’s team at an incredibly reduced rate. Our company additionally provided staffing, tables, and linens at little or no cost. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That said, we did not and would always refrain from making dismissive statements about guests’ experiences, as first reported by Daily Mail. No one from Lauryn’s Fine Catering has made any comment concerning last Friday’s event until now. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We regret that our food ordered by the organizers, was not what the guests had envisioned, and did not remain hot at all times, as the warming dishes were susceptible to the 35 degree weather, and our goal was to serve the more than 2,000 VIP guests as quickly as possible. It has been our primary focus for the past twenty years to provide top notch service to our guests. It is our hope that the multiple compliments we received from event guests outweigh the negative experiences received from circumstances outside of our control. As with every event, we will use this experience as an opportunity to grow, and we hope to strengthen our credibility and service for years to come.
