Top Twenty Twitter Reactions to the Colorado Purge Hoax
One of the images circulating through new and old media. Additional pics and more below.
Purge: Anarchy, the sequel to the surprise horror hit from last year, arrived in theaters last month, and at this point, it's pretty much run its course. But rumors of a real-life Colorado Purge beginning at 6:30 p.m. on September 6 -- during which, presumably, laws would be suspended for twelve hours, making all crimes legal -- are heating up, with old-school media outlets reporting about what is clearly a ham-handed social-media hoax. But the Twitter reactions are mighty entertaining anyhow. Count down our photo-illustrated top twenty favorite Twitter reactions below.
