Karen Sues Air & Space Museum For False Advertising!

A Karen just filed a lawsuit against the Washington Air & Space Museum for false advertising! What the heck’s going on???

 

Karen Sues Air & Space Museum For False Advertising!

A woman from Fresno had planned to take her kids to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington D.C., notable for its many aircraft and spacecraft displays.

But she made a terrible mistake when she keyed “Air and Space Museum Washington” into Apple Maps, which directed her to the Washington Air & Space Museum in Seattle, Washington.

That was just a 2-day road trip from Fresno, California, but on arrival, she discovered that the Washington Air & Space Museum was a pop-up art exhibition.

It was literally an empty warehouse exhibiting Air and Space.

The woman, who insists on remaining unnamed, has now sued the Washington Air & Space Museum for “false advertising”.

She insists that the Washington Air & Space Museums is wrong to display only air and space because it’s a museum, and by definition, must display “old things”.

Since air and space are never old, therefore, the Washington Air & Space Museum lied about being a museum.

She is asking for a public apology and $1 million dollars for the insult to her intelligence. What a Karen!

 

Karen vs Air & Space Museum : Social Media War!

The art collective behind the Washington Air & Space Museum is striking back, calling for the public to post their support using the hashtags #NoKaren #KarenFreeSpace

The Karen and her friends have started posting using the hashtag #MuseumNotArt.

You can have your fun as an online judge, and vote for whichever side you agree with! 😀
