Are Influence Marketers Responsible for Fyre Fest Restitution
A simple bit of click bait here ...
My basic thinking is that pretty much everyone who signed up to get rooked by Ja Rule deserved it. But the realistic side of me knows that vapid is as vapid does and stupid animals can't really help themselves, so who is the next best moron to pick on?
Of course its the social media influencers leading the tender little lambs to the slaughter. Actually at the moment they're likely the only people who came out to the positive in this whole affair, as the organizers are going to get the pants sued off of them. The dim witted attendees undoubtedly ended up out of pocket for at least some expenses.
Now the precedent is simple, Madoff trustee, Irving Picard has recovered billions in unwittingly ill gotten gains from people who withdrew enough money from their Madoff accounts to actually turn a profit against their original principal. Therefore, it seems simple, that people like Kylie Jenner, Bella Hadid, Hailey Baldwin and Emily Ratajkowski might actually be liable for some form of restitution in a case such as this, where they chose to lend their "good" names to a bad cause. While I am fairly certain that the social media influencers who served as carnival barkers for this sham were not co-conspirators, they were unwitting accessories to the fraud which was perpetrated.
