Defence Visual Information Distribution Service (a communications service for the US military) has apologised after a tweet (above) appeared to threaten people visiting Area 51 (top).

There’s an area called 51
And some folk decided, for fun,
To go take a look
The army were shook
And threatened them with a big gun

    Jesus Christ almighty – a joke response to a joke raid, and people are getting their knickers in a twist about it; we truly have run out of things to be offended by.

    (also in defence of my generation, I’m pretty sure that raiding Area 51 is more of a Generation Z concern than a millennial one)

    They should allow them to storm the base, but just have a huge jobs expo / ‘join the army’ stands in all the secret hangers.

    That’ll learn ’em!!

    If they went for an epic full-on anarchic alien-lovers versus tight-ass military unit dance-off I think it would finally trigger the benevolent intergalactic empire to stage an intervention.
