More than two million UFO enthusiasts responded to the call of “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us” Facebook event page, but they recently found it suddenly blocked by Facebook because of violations to “community standards.”
The Facebook event page managed to attract a
high volume of attendees and made Las Vegas strip club to pledge of bringing
its dancers to entertain the masses. Without further reason, Facebook removed
the page over the weekend, including the backup page set by the organizers.
The would-be raiders aired their
frustration on Reddit and regrouped to share their theories. Others went to
Twitter with Area 51 memes. Many agreed to the assumption that Facebook CEO
Mark Zuckerberg is an ET from Area 51 and he does not want his secret to be
disclosed to the public.
Some pointed out that the raid could still
take place as everyone knew the time and the place already. Another one opined
that Facebook has not heard of the Streisand effect. All hotels nearby are
booked for the dates surrounding September 20.
The Pentagon has also done its part to
discourage would-be raiders from pursuing their plan by issuing a warning that
the US Air Force always stands ready to protect the US and its assets.
