Fyre Festival Is Now Actually Threatening to Sue Festivalgoers
The Bahamas has also reportedly put a ban on the event returning next year
Published May 02, 2017Despite being hit with a $100 million lawsuit, organizers behind the ruinous Fyre Festival are reportedly gearing up to take legal action against concertgoers who had the nerve to take their complaints about the disastrous events to social media.
As TMZ reports, lawyers for Fyre Media have sent at least one cease and desist letter that claims social media posts were both untrue and could "incite violence, rioting or civil unrest." A complaint in the aforementioned lawsuit against the festival described the event as "closer to The Hunger Games or Lord of the Flies than Coachella."
The legal letter reportedly also warned that "if someone innocent does get hurt as a result [of your postings] Fyre Festival will hold you accountable and responsible...Inciting violence crosses the line."
TMZ also reports that the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism has banned festival heads Ja Rule and Billy McFarland from repeat business on the island, along with implementing a stricter vetting system for future festivals.
Fyre Media has yet to comment on the cease and desist letter.
