Ja Rule has responded via Twitter to the firestorm of criticism he and other organizers have received over the chaos of the Fyre Festival in the Bahamas. Organized by Rule and investor tech entrepreneur Billy McFarland, concertgoers arrived on the island of Exumas to find not the luxurious setting they’d been promised, but flimsy tents instead of beautiful bungalows, boxed lunches, and a near-complete lack of organization.
“We are working right now on getting everyone [off] the island SAFE that is my immediate concern,” he wrote. “I will make a statement soon. I’m heartbroken at this moment, my partners and I wanted this to be an amazing event. It was NOT A SCAM as everyone is reporting. I don’t know how everything went so left but I’m working to make it right by making sure everyone is refunded… I truly apologize as this is NOT MY FAULT … but I’m taking responsibility. I’m deeply sorry to everyone who was inconvenienced by this.”
