How have online stars not learned?

The Dolan Twins, two incredibly popular YouTubers with over 4.5 million subscribers were in London for the MTV EMA's. For some reason they decided that it would be a good idea to tell their fans to meet them in a public park in London... on Remembrance Day... when there happened to be a memorial service in that very park. You can guess what happened next.

It started with some tweets

As all mistakes do.

Fans started turning up in their droves

Then things took a turn for the worse

You see, the 11th of November is a date known as 'Remembrance Day' in the UK. It is the day when soldiers lost in battle are remembered and has been celebrated annually since the First World War. It is a serious and solemn occasion that people take extremely seriously. In London's Hyde Park, there was a memorial service happening, to remember the war dead.

The Dolans unknowingly summoned a screaming crowd of fans to this service.

Although the Dolan Twins clearly didn't do this on purpose, this is a good reminder that Google exists and is free to use. Maybe if you're heading somewhere in a strange city, you give it like, a two second Google before you go? Just a thought.

But fans... didn't leave. And then things got worse

Then the police arrived...

Shockingly, the police were a little on-edge about loud public gatherings near remembrance services.

But it wasn't all bad

Why does this keep happening?

This is definitely not the first time that a spontaneous public meet-up has ended in disaster. YouTubers need to realise that their audiences are massive and unorganised meet-ups always tend to end up in a kind of dangerous stampede.
