There are a lot of fucktwits out there like that.

People get so enamored by celebs and bling that they don't really understand its just a maggot underneath it all sucking there money and not delivering results. And then salespeople always wonder why I'm a jerk to them. Dodgy

And its not just people who get suckered. It's institutions too.

I'm always amazed how easy it is for these sorts of fucktwits to get big loans from banks with no business foundation, but then a real business with actual operations and profits trying to get a loan is like pulling fucking teeth and usually results in nothing.

What gets me in a (jealous) rage is these same fucktwits also have all these hos lining up to fuck. Stupid hos can't tell the difference between a scam and the real thing.

And then I'm always amazed at how they keep pulling off stunts like this again and again. If they finally do find some modicum of success they're mantra is, "keep failing! eventually you'll succeed!" Maybe if they put in the work the first time and approach things conservatively, they wouldn't have that idiotic refrain that encourages other idiots to join the fuckwit parade.

Can we start a GoFundMe for the organizers to keep all of the moronic attendees stuck there forever? Our societies would benefit greatly!

The pics look like something outta the walking dead.

I can't fathom the level of human brain that would go to something like this, let alone pay thousands of dollars for it.

The pics showed awesome beach cabanas and celebs. And every music festival I've ever been too is really well put together - the logistics and event handling is top notch. There was really no reason for the kids to doubt that the pics were all fakes.

I think some of the celebs deserve a lawsuit for promoting this - Ja-Rule and Bella Hadid. High-time some of those bullshit celebs shoulder some responsibility rather than just rake in cash for doing nothing. They have a responsibility to their fans and to their brand. They have a responsiblity to do their due diligence for the things they rep. This just shows how big of a whore they really are.

I get it - it is painful to hear the truth. Also - girls are fainting for various reasons all the time. That is not the end of the world.

To be honest - if that happened to me and I was stranded there, I would try to make fun of the situation - because if you don't laugh, then you are really fucked.

The majority of them will survive without a scratch. You paid a couple grand to get educated.

Does anyone really think the Bahamas are that dangerous? I've been to Grand Bahama several times and never felt the least bit unsafe. Sounds like these retards are being dramatic.

That is the thing - they had excellent marketing, great promo vids, celebrity endorsements up to the bazoo - what they did not have was any product to sell.

Since the journalists nowdays are little more than copy-paste-monkeys whose research is non-existent, they dish out articles like that:

http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/mus...story.html

Quote:Described rather hopefully on Instagram as “the cultural experience of the decade,” Fyre Festival is set for two consecutive weekends — April 28-30 and May 5-7 — and will feature, as Jenner revealed, headlining performances by the G.O.O.D. Music Family.

What is the G.O.O.D. Music Family? That’s a G.O.O.D. question.

G.O.O.D. Music is the record label founded by Kanye West (who’s married to Jenner’s half-sister, Kim Kardashian); artists signed to the label include Big Sean, Pusha T, Desiigner, Teyana Taylor and Tyga (who’s in a relationship with Jenner’s sister Kylie).

Asked which of those acts would appear in the Bahamas, a spokesperson for Fyre Festival said specific information would be released later. No other performers have been announced.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t buy tickets now, of course.

On Instagram, Kendall Jenner offered “VIP access” to her followers, as well as a promotional code “to get on the list for the artists and talent afterparty on Fyre Cay.”

Passes, which include accommodations and air travel from Miami, start at $1,595 per person, though various deluxe packages are also available — like the one that costs $399,995 and includes dinner with a performer.

Kendell Jenner is dishing out the good business ideas - first Pepsi, now this. She jumped ship later it seems, but she already promoted it in the beginning, so I guess that she got paid.

Quote:Move over, Coachella: Kendall Jenner is getting into the festival business - LA Times

Yeah - right - Fake News once again.

The hilarity of this all is killing me.

How come no one took their private yacht to this experience? You'd think one of them would have a boat capable of getting out.

And this is the bahamas of all places. Maybe if this was in Haiti or St. Lucia then i'd believe the stories of roving gangs, but the Bahamas? Please.

I enjoyed hearing this story. I put my phone down to laugh at Refugee Simulator.

This is a specific environment. You don't know who they hired. Also it became clear soon enough that the armed security is not going to get paid. In addition such an event certainly attracted pick-pockets. I have no trouble that guards were thinking - let us grab some cash, because we are not going to get any cash from that company anyway.

The gang-rape is unconfirmed, so we will see about that.

Also most tourists don't travel to remote island parts where only impoverished locals live. And most tourists don't advertise being well-off and virtually unprotected.

The Bahamas has one of the highest murder rates in the Caribbean, it can be pretty ghetto, I wouldn't fuck around off the resort down there.

God damned them all, I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold, we'd fire no guns-shed no tears, now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier, the last of Barrett's privateers!

Yeah - Gini Coefficient hitting again - relative poverty is often a leading cause of violence. Bahamas has some of the richest folk on the planet living there on private Islands, but this was not one of those islands where the snowflakes wanted to have some fun.

Most murders are domestic and muggings will usually leave you cash-less, but not lifeless.

The Bahamas has been dealing for years with its own migrant crisis of Haitian boat people who are undocumented and living in the shadows, those are the ones you really have to worry about if you wander off the resort.

There have been people voicing concerns over this some time ago:

[Image: C-eBKDrU0AA4hSu.jpg]

They supposedly even used performers who were doing different gigs at the time and were definitely not coming. The little band that played seemed to have been a local one and they packed up and left after a few hours. Maybe they got wind, that they would not get paid.

The whole thing does not make much sense - it is either one of the worst cases of incompetence or it is a pure scam and the guy takes the 3-5 million he made net to the bank and never shows his face in the business world again.

It seems that hundreds paid, but it may have been thousands - there were some delays with the flights and there may have been large groups who did not even reach the site. He could have made 10 mio. $ and simply called it quits.
