    Just catching wind of his Fyre Festival, the highly publicized excursion in the Bahamas that cost rich, white millennials in the neighborhood of $10,000. Top-notch lodging, food and drink would be added to a knockout lineup of performing artists.

    Except, well ....

    The complete and utter disaster that was Fyre Festival played out on social media for all to see

    It apparently was the brain child of Ja Rule, because, you know, 2002 was awesome. Not surprisingly, his Twitter account was been "suspended."

    Some of the tweets are just amazing.

    It's like a rich version of Lord of the Flies. Now this is reality television. Also, it's hard for me to feel one iota of sympathy for the bozos who shelled out this kind of dough for a weekend in the Bahamas. And I can guarantee you lawsuits are coming .... lawsuits everywhere.

    Yeah, if people pay for a vacation, they definitely should be subjected to starvation, fires and physical harm.

    I know how you think from that blogger thread.

    So you're very easy to dismiss. Your perceptions and ability to read people and situations are for shit.

    I hope journalists refrain from reporting on this until they can get Ja Rule on the record.

    Not doing so might jeapordize the success of next year's festival.
