Following the hype surrounding the Area 51 meme-filled event page, the two million UFO enthusiasts were shocked to find it had been blocked by Facebook for breaching its elusive "community standards."

Whether Facebook was concerned about the high volume of attendees or offended by the multitude of memes posted by the community, they decided to remove the “Storm Area 51; They Can’t Stop All of Us” page.

Even the backup page, set up by organizers, was removed.

The social media giant found the “content posted to this event” to be in violation of “community standards.”

Others flooded Twitter with Area 51 memes.

Some even agreed that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg “is secretly an alien from Area 51, and he doesn’t want us to know.”

Some pointed out that potential attendees were aware of the time a place already, and the raid could still take place.

“Facebook hasn’t heard of the Streisand effect,” another opined.

Despite the event beginning as a joke, a lot of local businesses have cashed in on the hype with nearby hotels are booked for the dates surrounding September 20.

But according to Lincoln County Sheriff Kerry, the 500 unexpected visitors throw the area into chaos, creating traffic and parking problems for the 5,200 residents in the desert municipality.
