If he gets people to invest in a scam festival immediately after being in prison for a scam festival, it shouldn't be illegal. The scammed only have themselves to blame

I forgot this dumbass even existed. Can someone immediately jail the guy? Or at least that maybe we put him on parole, so he can't try to do the same dumb crap again or for the rest of his life?

I really, really, really want this to happen and fail even more spectacularly than last time.

I say if the magnificent bastard pulls it off a second time, he deserves a Presidential Medal of Freedom and a seat on the Supreme Court. Dude (accidentally) did more to reveal how shady, toxic, and untrustworthy social media/influencer advertising really is to the American public, than the entire mass media the near-thirty years of social media's existence. Including Jerry Media and their bullshit, whitewashing, cash-in Netflix documentary on the same fiasco they enabled.

At this point he could literally just do another event called "The Fyre Festival Experience" and do literally the same thing, but on purpose calling it a "satirical" or "ironic" experience, and morons would line up around the block and pay more for it than last time.

I mean, I know a lot of well-meaning folks got screwed by this and lost a lot of money they really couldn't afford to lose. But on the other hand, they're still millennial dipshits wasting money they can't afford to spend on bullshit like dipshit music festivals. The Bahamians who got screwed, on the other hand, I do feel genuinely bad for.
