Netflix has just released its newest, must-see original documentary “FYRE: The greatest party that didn’t happen.” The movie does not disappoint as you watch the unraveling of a scam that never seems to end.
The mastermind behind the FYRE Festival is Billy McFarland, who is now serving a 6-year prison sentence for the fraud that funded the event. McFarland, who is the true definition of a megalomaniac, is one of the most sadly entertaining people to ever walk this planet. From his outlandish portrayals of wealth on social media to his delusional interpretations of putting on such a huge festival, there is never a dull moment.
In one of the most odd interviews, we find out that McFarland demands one of his male employees offer sexual favors to get a massive shipment of bottled water out of port for his doomed festival in an attempt to continue to save face. If internet scams, Instagram models, music and cocaine is your thing, this documentary won’t disappoint.
