Creator of Area 51 Facebook page speaks out
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The creator of a viral Facebook group called “Storm Area 51: They Can’t Stop All of Us,” is finally speaking out.
Bakersfield college student Matty Roberts says he created the page on June 27 as a joke. More than a million people have joined the group which promises to storm Area 51 in September.
Now Roberts says he wants to make the event into “a festival of some sort and have a bunch of musical artists.”
The college student is urging the public not to take page too seriously as it was created as a joke.
