Kellyanne Conway mentioned a fake news story about a terrorist incident she called “Bowling Green Massacre”, except it never happened. Of course the internet was not going to let the creator of alternative facts off that easy.
Someone created a Wikipedia page about it.
Of course Twitter reacted.
Help honor the victims of the #BowlingGreenMasacre by RT’ing their names.

I just feel happy for the people who thought they died in the #BowlingGreenMasacre but just realized they’re actually alive.

I’ve just been informed both Bigfoot and the Loch Ness monster were lost in the #BowlingGreenMasacre. Two legends gone too soon.

Elvis was indeed alive all this time, but was unfortunately killed during the #BowlingGreenMasacre

I think the reason Trump’s inauguration crowd was so small was because they all died in that terrible #BowlingGreenMasacre

#BowlingGreenMasacre This just in the Bowling Green Massacre will occur on an alternative date, at an alternative place, alternatively.
