Two documentaries on the notorious disaster that was the Fyre Fest -- Netflix’s Fyre and Hulu’s Fyre Fraud — were released last week.
Ja Rule co-founded the doomed event with Billy McFarland, who's now serving six years for fraud.
Ja spent the weekend defending the Fyre Fest from its many critics, who seemed particularly irked about all of the vendors and locals Ja and McFarland ended up stiffing.
