    We'd all heard about what a hot mess Fyre Festival was when hundreds of punters were left stranded back in April 2017, but after both Hulu and Netflix dropped their two documentaries on the debacle this weekend, the internet has reaaally gotten a look at just how bad it was. 

    Hulu's documentary Fyre Fraud surprise-dropped just a few days before Netflix's planned Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened (shade much?) this weekend.

    Firstly, people are noticing that Netflix's version was executive produced by FuckJerry founder Elliot Tebele and his company Jerry Media, who were behind Fyre Festival's social and marketing campaign in the first place. Interesting (and possibly a biased look at the event). The common thread is that Hulu's reporting of the events are a little more balanced.

    Others are surprised by co-founder Billy McFarland's interviews in Fyre Fraud, while other co-founder Ja Rule declined to take part in either documentary and is instead insisting he was a victim of the entire fraudulent event too.

    The documentaries have also shone a light on the many innocent workers in the Bahamas affected by the event's appalling lack of organisation, such as restaurant owner Maryanne Rolle. People have even started a GoFundMe to help her out.

    Basically, Fyre is as much a hot mess today as it was back in 2017 when everything started unravelling... but like a car crash, we can't look away. 

    Oh and Hulu? They're not holding back.
