The “Livin’ It Up” artist had similar words in 2017 following the disaster. “I’m heartbroken at this moment my partners and I wanted this to be an amazing event it WAS NOT A SCAM,” he wrote in a note. 

He added, “I truly apologize as this is NOT MY FAULT.”

On Sunday, Ja Rule took time to respond to tweets and answer people’s questions about the festival and documentaries. “I guess I’m on Fyre this week…” he wrote with the fire emoji and laughing crying emojis.

In response to one tweet accusing him of scamming people, Ja Rule replied, “tell me how it makes sense for Ja Rule to scam ppl???”

Many of his tweets pointed fingers at McFarland. When asked why Ja Rule didn’t partake in the documentaries, he wrote, “Because Billy was involved with BOTH he was trying to get them to pay him and Hulu bit… I heard they paid him somewhere btw 100 to 250… that money was supposed to go to the locals by LAW…”

Ja Rule asserted later that he “NEVER MADE OR GOT PAID ONE DOLLAR FROM FYRE… BUT EVERYONE ELSE DID!!!” and that he lost “PLENTY” of money on it.

He also called himself a victim of McFarland’s scam. “I too was hustled, scammed, bamboozled, hood winked, lead astray!!!” he tweeted.
