    Remember Fyre Festival?

    If you don't, it's the festival that Billy McFarland set up alongside Ja Rule. It was supposed to be a luxury experience, but it ended up seeing him sentenced to prison for six years on two counts of wire fraud charges.

    The US Marshals are now auctioning off merch from the failed festival, including t-shirts, hoodies, FYRE tokens and a wrist band that says, “A Conspiracy To Change The Entertainment Industry.” What a LOL.

    There's 126 items in total available, so you'll want to get online now and check out the range of items. Go on, you know you want to have a look.

    Speaking about the auction, US Marshal Ralph Sozio says all items were seized from McFarland. All items were "kept by McFarland, with the intent to sell the items and use the funds to commit further criminal acts while he was on pre-trial release.

    "The proceeds from the sale of these items, all traceable to McFarland’s $26 million fraud, will go toward the victims of his crimes.” At least the money made from the merch are going to a good cause.
