There's A New Meme Where People Hit "Attending" On Random Parents Evening Facebook Events

These schools have to be really, really confused about all of this.

Earlier this week, a parents evening Facebook event organised by Norton Hill School in Bristol, England, ended up somehow getting 3,000 attendees.

According to The Tab, the page filled up quickly with memes and emojis from the thousands of random people who had all hit attending.

But it turns out the Norton Hill School parents' evening event was only one part of a much larger, weirder thing. The Ridgeway School & Sixth Form College in Wroughton, Wiltshire, appears to have been trolled to hell as well.

Hersh Kataria, an 18-year-old university student, was one of the first people to start trolling a parents evening event organized by Whetstone Field Primary School. He told BuzzFeed News he saw a friend doing it and just joined in.

"I pressed going and then my friends saw it on their News Feed and then they clicked going, and it pretty much just chained on from there, so that's how it probably started in the first place," he said.
