Back in 2017, Billy McFarland and rapper Ja Rule announced a festival called Fyre Festival that took place in the Bahamas.

Attendees paid between $1,200 to $100,000 per ticket but weren't given proper accommodations and had to sleep in refugee tents or on the beach. 

Instead of the food they were promised, they were served cheese sandwiches, plus no musical acts ever appeared, and after about a day everyone had to be rescued from the island.

McFarland was eventually arrested and is currently serving six years in prison, and lately, things have got even worse after he was placed in solitary confinement.

According to The Federal Bureau of Prisons, he is being investigated after the debut of his new podcast, Dumpster Fyre, and some of the photographs which were used in its promotion.
