Twitter Wonders If Area 51 Is Protected Better Than The US Capitol: ‘Let’s Go Steal A UFO’ — See Memes

U.S. Capitol Protest


Area 51 memes overtook Twitter as people wondered if they could storm into the top-secret facility, just like Donald Trump’s supporters broke into the U.S. Capitol.

Americans watched in horror as a Donald Trump-supporting mob overtook the U.S. Capitol building on Jan. 6, where Congress had gathered to certify Joe Biden‘s presidential election victory. As clips of protestors smashing windows and stealing property from the U.S. federal government building in Washington D.C. went viral, Twitter users wondered if another government-guarded area would be just as easy to break into: Area 51.

Area 51, which is a United States Air Force facility located in the Nevada desert and has long been subject to rumors of extraterrestrial activity, is closed off to the public — just like the Capitol. “Me and the boys going to Area 51 after seeing how easy it was to get in the capitol building,” one person tweeted, sharing a clip from Ready Player One. Another Twitter user shared a similar joke, instead using a clip of Patrick Starr walking in his platform black boots from that one episode of SpongeBob SquarePants. Another person shared a SpongeBob-themed meme, as you can see below:

Others wondered if they could have actually carried out that satirical raid on Area 51 in 2019. At the time, a college student had made a viral Facebook event called “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us,” planned for Sept. 20 of 2019, as a joke; the FBI ended up calling him. The raid never happened, however. “Starting to think we could have stormed Area 51 and lived,” another Twitter user tweeted on Wednesday, sharing a clip of Naruto running.

Others had similar thoughts. “The government was more worried about the Area 51 raid than what’s going on today,” another Twitter user complained, and Workaholics star Blake Anderson even chimed in, writing, “Storming the Capital Building was like a million times easier than the Area 51 raid WTF.”

Meanwhile, some people joked about using the scene at the Capitol as a distraction to sneak into Area 51. “Me on my way to Area 51 while everyone busy with them trump supporters in dc,” one such person wrote over a driving clip (see below).

On a more serious note, celebrities took to Twitter with outrage upon seeing the terrifying crowd at the Capitol. “The epitome of white privilege! How disturbing!!! I am sick to my stomach !,” Khloe Kardashian wrote over photos of the looters and protestors (you can see even more stars’ reactions, here).

The U.S. Capitol was eventually secured, but not before one woman was shot and eventually died, CNN reported on Wednesday evening. Amid all the chaos, Trump issued his own message to the protestors, calling them “special,” much to many Americans’ disbelief.

Pink Offers To Pay ‘Sexist’ Fines Against Norwegian Women’s Handball Team After They Wear Shorts

Pink Offers To Pay ‘Sexist’ Fines Against Norwegian Women’s Handball Team After They Wear Shorts


After the Norwegian Women’s beach handball team got fined for refusing to wear bikini bottoms, Pink trashed the ‘very sexist rules’ and offered to cover the bill.

Pink is doling out the green to protest the European Handball Federation’s rules. The governing body fined the Norwegian women’s beach handball team a total of €1,500 (around $1,765, per CNN) after the team wore shorts, just like their male counterparts, to the 2021 European Beach Handball Championships. “I’m VERY proud of the Norwegian female beach handball team FOR PROTESTING THE VERY SEXIST RULES ABOUT THEIR ‘uniform,” Pink, 41, tweeted on Sunday (July 25). “The European handball federation SHOULD BE FINED FOR SEXISM. Good on ya, ladies. I’ll be happy to pay your fines for you. Keep it up.”

The team shared their love for Pink by reposting her tweet to their Instagram story. “Wow! Thank you so much for the support,” they added, per CNN. The team also shared their gratitude for all the support they’ve received over this fight. “We are very proud of these girls who during the European Championships raised their voices,” the Norwegian Handball Federation official Twitter account tweeted. “We at NHF stand behind you and support you. Together we will continue to fight to change the rules for clothing so that players can play in the clothes they are comfortable with!”

According to International Handball Federation regulations, female-identifying players must wear biking bottoms “with a side width of a maximum of 10 centimeters (3.9 inches), with a ‘close fit’ and ‘cut on an upward angle toward the top of the leg,’” per CNN. Meanwhile, male-identifying players are allowed to wear shorts that are “not too baggy” and 10 centimeters above the knee. Many female players say that the uniform is degrading, and Eskil Berg Andreassen, the team’s coach, told CNN that the team was fighting for the freedom “to choose” its own kit, adding that the required uniforms could discourage women from playing the sport.

In response to the criticism, EHF President Michael Wiederer said that “the EHF will do all it can to ensure that a change of athlete uniform regulations can be implemented. Significant efforts will be made in order to further promote the sport in the best way possible for everyone, regardless of gender.” However, the president said that such changes in regulations could not happen overnight.

Scott Disick and Amelia Hamlin are enjoying some quality time in the Hamptons, cuddling up under a designer blanket while out for a boat ride.

Scott Disick has snuggled up to his new girlfriend Amelia Hamlin, while spending some quality time in the Hamptons. The 38-year-old took to Instagram on July 24 to share a pic of the couple getting cozy on a boat. Scott revealed they were joined by his daughter Penelope, 9, while vacationing in The Hamptons, the popular celeb hot spot east of New York City. In the pic, he and Amelia were wrapped up in an Hermes blanket to protect against the chilly ocean breeze.

The daughter of Lisa Rinna wore a white sweater while Scott cut an equally casual figure in a grey hoodie. “Hermes only to swim,” he captioned the photo. It comes just one week after Scott shared a pic to his Instagram story with Amelia and Reign posing on a dock. “Great night just a little smelly for reign out on these old docks,” he wrote, explaining why Reign was holding his nose shut with his left hand.

In the photo, Scott rocked camouflage sweatpants and a white tee, along with blue and white sneakers and platinum blonde hair. 20-year-old Amelia looked glam in a beige corset-style top and and high-waisted cream pants, which she paired with pointy-toe heels. The father-of-three also posted a pic of his daughter Penelope sitting on top of a Mercedes SUV. The nine-year-old, whom he shares with his former partner Kourtney Kardashian, cut a casual figure in a pink sweatsuit and slip-on shoes.

Scott and Amelia first sparked dating rumors in October 2020, however, the 18 year age gap has been a point of contention for Amelia’s mom Lisa. The Days of Our Lives alum confessed that her daughter told her she was just “friends” with Scott until Amelia sent her a photo of the two on the beach. At that point, Lisa said she knew there was “more to it” in a recent episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. “She’s 19. He’s 37 with three kids. Hello?” she said on camera during the episode, which filmed in November. “I’m a lot nervous about it,” Lisa also added at the time.
