Fyre Festival Docs - Netflix and Hulu

Has anyone watched these documentaries? The depth of that guy's fraud and douchbaggery is staggering. My favorite part is in the Hulu doc where he states they had paper receipts for all the promised accommodations, but lost a box filled with the keys.

It's also amazing that Ja Rule escaped pretty much unscathed.

There's an ongoing thread in Other:

https://forum.dvdtalk.com/other-talk...ng-jarule.html

But it does belong here too.

I'm wondering why that thread hasn't moved into the TV forum...

Did you spell it "Fyre?" A search on that one word brought up both threads.

Re: Fyre Festival Docs - Netflix and Hulu

Perhaps the fact that it is getting more traffic there than this is here?

I watched the Netflix one (don’t have Hulu). It was like Son of Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room.

I guess the part that baffled me the most was the older consultant guy. He was one of the few people who came off “likable” in the doc. However it really seemed as if he still believes in this con artist despite what he was saying on camera. His story of his “escape” conjured up some humorous images in my mind ... not sure if I believe him though.
