The 37-year-old comedian — who is expecting her first child with husband Chris Fischer — posted an Instagram photo of the disastrous 2017 festival’s camp grounds located on the Bahamian island of Great Exuma. “My baby shower was LIT!” she jokingly captioned the picture on Monday, January 21. “Thanks girls!”

Schumer’s hilarious take on Fyre Festival came days after Hulu and Netflix both dropped documentaries addressing its mass downfall. What was promoted as a two-weekend extravaganza was set to take place in April and May 2017, and A-list models including Kendall Jenner, Hailey Baldwin and Bella Hadid helped draw attention to it.

Ja Rule, who organized the event alongside businessman Billy McFarland, weighed in on the scandal on Sunday, January 20, after Netflix’s Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened and Hulu’s Fyre Fraud made headlines. “I had an amazing vision to create a festival like NO OTHER!!!” the 42-year-old rapper tweeted. “I would NEVER SCAM or FRAUD anyone what sense does that make??”

McFarland pleaded guilty in March 2018 to wire fraud and fabricating documents to attract investors. He agreed to forfeit more than $26 million and was also charged with selling fake tickets to Coachella and Met Gala while out on bail. In October 2018, he was sentenced to six years in federal prison.
