Over one million people have said they are going to “storm Area 51,” but the U.S. Air Force has issued a stern warning to UFO hunters who plan to “see them aliens” at the military facility in Nevada southwest of Groom Lake.
Interest in UFOs has exploded since the Joe Rogan interview with Bob Lazar, who said he worked for the U.S. government at Area 51, and the star of the 2018 documentary Bob Lazar: Area 51 & Flying Saucers gained massive popularity since being on Netflix. The Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository, which is a highly classified remote detachment of Edwards Air Force Base, is long-rumored to be housing UFOs and possibly even aliens.
A Facebook page event Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us was posted last week and quickly went viral. The internet shared hundreds of memes about the event planned for Friday, September 20, 2019 at 3 AM – 6 AM PDT at the Area 51 Alien Center in Amargosa Valley, Nevada.
Over one million said they are going to the alien event and nearly another one million Facebook users said they were interested in attending the UFO hunt. Conspiracy theorists belive the Nevada Test and Training Range is housing multiple UFOs and extra-terrestrial aliens.
The Facebook page noted they could gain entry to the military facility “if we naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets.” The description ends with: “Lets see them aliens.” “Naruto run” refers to unique running style of Naruto Uzumaki from the Japanese anime series Naruto.

The Facebook event started as an obvious prank since it was started by the account “Sh*tposting cause im in shambles,” but has gone so viral that it has prompted a response by the Air Force.
The United States Air Force issued an uncompromising warning to those individuals who plan to storm the top secret military base. Air Force spokeswoman Laura McAndrews gave a statement advising citizens to not Naruto Run towards the military complex and try to infiltrate the base that has been near many UFO sightings.
“[Area 51] is an open training range for the U.S. Air Force, and we would discourage anyone from trying to come into the area where we train American armed forces,” McAndrews said. “The U.S. Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets.”
So you might want to rethink your plans of trying to storm Area 51 because their could be grave consequences such as being shot, but then again you know you wanna see them aliens and “clappin’ some alien ass cheeks.”
