The merry pranksters running the satirical “City of Atlanta” Facebook page are planning an implosion event for Stone Mountain.
“Join us as we implode America's largest Confederate monument!” the page said, creating an event page that quickly became popular Tuesday night. “Say goodbye to a symbol of white supremacy and celebrate with us as we watch Stone Mountain crumble to the ground.”
The whole thing is fake, obviously, considering that the City of Atlanta page is fake and whoever runs it has no authority to blow up anything. Stone Mountain isn’t even in the city of Atlanta and it’s owned by the state. If you go to the park on Sunday between noon and 12:05 p.m., you won’t witness the massive stone explode.
