Holy SHIZ! Talk about one hell of a super sweet 16!
But where was our invite?! LOLz!
A girl in Germany created a Facebook invite for her 16th birthday party, but because she forgot to mark it as private, it went viral and more than 1,500 guests showed up - and 100 police officers were called in to keep the crowd under control!
The teen, only identified as "Thessa," invited a few guests to her home in Hamburg Friday night, but after it went viral, 1,500 people confirmed via the social networking site, so in attempt to alleviate the situation, her parents made her cancel the party, sent her off with her grandparents, notified the authorities and hired private security to keep an eye on their house.
And for the first time in the history of Facebook invites, everyone who seemed to confirm attendance for the shindig actually showed up, some holding signs that said "Where Is Thessa?" while most just brought booze and partied in the streets, chanting "Thessa, celebrating a birthday is not a crime!"
According to police spokesperson Mirko Streiber:
"We had cordoned off the house, some 100 police were on the ground, four of them on horses — but that did not keep the kids from celebrating. It was sheer insanity but mostly peaceful. The party was a hit."
Apparently, eleven people were detained, two small fires were extinguished, and one police officer was injured, but we're just glad to hear that it didn't turn into a complete riot!
Sounds like everyone just really wanted to celebrate this girl's birthday! LOLz!
We're sure poor Thessa will only look back at this and laugh, but either way, we imagine this will be the last time she posts any kind of invite on Facebook without enabling the privacy options, if at all! Ha!
