he definitely deserves a bit of jail time, but i'd like to see him get some kind of award as well
A documentary on the disastrous Fyre Festival fiasco is coming to Hulu
Two attendees of disastrous Fyre festival awarded $2.5m each
"Rich cunts with access to hotshot lawyers get even more money"
It's like a fight where you want to see both sides knocked out simultaneously
$2.5 million? That doesn't seem to make any sense.
Sounds like you need a dose of freedom.
Do any of the mega awards ever actually get paid out? Most times they seem to be vastly reduced to a semi sane amount on appeal.
Given that the organisers have already been fined a shitload of money and presumably won't have got liability insurance (and if they had, their negligence would surely render it invalid anyway) it seems unlikely they're going to have a spare 2.5 million to give every individual punter in compensation. It's utterly absurd to make compensation awards like that.
I.Feel. So. Sorry. For. Him.
Honest. Cross my heart and hope to laugh outrageously.
$9k a year on lunch? That's around £30 a day
Yeah, I looked him up.
Saved up his “lunch money” for his retirement for decades, then punted $180k on a ludicrous venture for privileged dickheads headlined by a serial fraudster and two dozen instagram influencers.
Me <——————————————————————————— sympathy.
Indeed - he invested in several of McFarland's scams, presumably because he thought he was going to rake in a massive return from people even more gullible than him:
Fyre Festival fraudster Billy McFarland sentenced to six years in prison
If you'd built up a nest egg over twenty years that represented your entire retirement pot, would you punt it on something so sus?
Prolly the nest egg he earned from cashing out his South Sea shares and black tulip bulbs just before they jumped the shark
I'd also wager that, after his name has made the headlines in this way, Mr Nemeth is currently f***ing *inundated* by phone calls and emails offering swift ways to recover his capital #rofl
Nemeth currently Instagramming from a seminar about an exciting new opportunity:
