Nigel Farage could be facing empty auditoriums when he kicks off the “America’s Comeback” tour after people signed up for the free event with no interest in going. A few days ago he claimed that 20,000 migrants will be crossing the Channel in 2021.
Inspired by K-pop fans who disrupted Donald Trump’s Tulsa rally last year, social media users have been sharing eventbrite links to the former Ukipers’ talk, encouraging people to register even if they have no interest in what he has to say.
The tour, which launches today at the Pittsburgh Airport Marriott, is aimed at inspiring “thousands of activists” to “take back America for the working class people”.
But after the link to the talk went viral on social media, it looks like the only thing Farage will be inspiring is empty chairs.

Please register for this Nigel Farage event…
…*even* if you can’t make it.https://t.co/5z1E8Hbmxp
It’s highly irresponsable of people to get free tickets to Nigel Farage’s tour with no intention of going. It looks like poor Nigel will be speaking to empty halls. Please retweet to discourage others from doing the same.🙂 https://t.co/mLMp2N6Fz3— Jonely (@JamesBurnie2) May 17, 2021
Well if that wasn’t enough for Farage, an artist called David Ziggy Greene on twitter, drew this masterpiece, which blew up on the social media platform.
