Ammon Bundy‘s armed takeover of an Oregon government facility is still ongoing, although trying to determine if the group will face heavier interest from federal authorities remains to be seen.
Earlier on Wednesday, Twitter reacted to the news that the son of controversial rancher Cliven Bundy carelessly compared himself to Rosa Parks.
In the wee hours of Wednesday morning, a tweet went out from the @Ammon_Bundy account reading “We are doing the same thing as Rosa Parks did. We are standing up against bad laws which dehumanize us and destroy our freedom.”
Naturally, the response to the tweet was swift as expected but quickly shot down by MSNBC reporter Tony Dokoupil, who says he was standing right next to Bundy as those tweets allegedly to be posted by him went live.
Despite the story correction, Twitter users erupted into a series of jokes and memes regarding the news with some hilarious results. We’ve compiled a few below for your viewing.
