Everyone Is Trashing The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, So The NYC Landmark Expertly Responded To Its Haters And Tree-Shamers

Leave the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree alone.

While each and every day continues to blend into the other in ways that are equal parts predictable and totally unpredictable, there was one thing I didn't expect to happen this year: giant Christmas tree–shaming.

Yes, giant Christmas tree–shaming.

Rockefeller Center in New York City posted a picture of this year's Christmas tree, and apparently a lot of people have a lot of things to say.

"This tree looks dead?!?" this person said, which, like, no shit! They chopped it down.

"Was this tree struck by lightning?" this person asked. To this I say, "No, they chopped it down."

This person was worried about squirrels, which, like, hopefully they got away.

And this person even had the audacity to call it a giant twig. A. Giant. Twig.

As you can see, "Girl, what the hell is this?" was the overall sentiment.

Ultimately, this rude behavior from random keyboard warriors became too much for the New York City landmark.
