“Storm Area 51” Page Is Pulled By Facebook

An event page dedicated to a tongue-in-cheek "raid" on Area 51 has been taken down by Facebook.

More than two million people had signed up for the event, planned for September 20th at the military installation in the Nevada desert, to “see them aliens.”Mathew Roberts, the event creator, says the page was removed for violating community standards but was given no further explanation.

Instead, Roberts says he's planning a festival to take place the same day, but far from the top secret base. He set up a page for that event, but it has also been removed by Facebook.

Facebook hasn’t commented.
