A lawsuit seeking an astonishing AUD $132 million has been filed against the organisers of the ill-fated Fyre Festival, because instant social media infamy doesn’t seem like enough to compensate for the historic clusterfuck.

Made it back safe and sound to Austin from Fyre Festival and all the adrenaline has worn off. Thank you friends for the texts and calls. Everything you’ve read is true and I was on the first flight out at 530am to the island and witnessed the debacle from start to finish. We made the most of a crazy situation and met some awesome folks in the midst of chaos. Needless to say, I’m hanging up my festival shoes for a bit… #fyrefraud #fyrefestival
Variety reports that the festival, organised by Ja Rule and young entrepreneur Billy McFarland, was so stunningly mismanaged that they probably don’t have the cash to pay out any successful suit. As such, the legal action also mentions Kendall Jenner, Emily Ratajkowski and Bella Hadid, who’ve copped serious shit for advertising the festival before it crashed and burned.
