20 Fyre Festival Tweets You'll Feel Bad For Laughing At
The ill-fated Fyre Festival might go down in history as one of music's biggest fails: what was originally billed as a "once-in-a-lifetime musical experience" quickly became a complete disaster. The festival, held on the small island of Exuma in the Bahamas, was the brainchild of rapper Ja Rule and entrepreneur Billy McFarland (who have since issued public apologies and are reportedly facing a $100 million lawsuit).

Here are 20 social media reactions to Fyre Festival that you'll feel kind of bad for laughing at.
