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.
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.
Here’s what people had to say:
