A tweet instructing people not to shoot at Hurricane Irma has gone viral, but it’s the tweet’s replies that keep people coming back.

Gun control advocacy organization, The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, shared a Yahoo News story and wrote on Twitter: “Unfortunately we must issue the following warning. DO NOT SHOOT YOUR GUNS AT THE HURRICANE!!!”

According to the story, tens of thousands of people signed up on a Facebook event to shoot at Hurricane Irma.

“YO SO THIS GOOFY LOOKING WINDY HEADA** NAMED IRMA SAID THEY PULLING UP ON US. LETS SHOW IRMA THAT WE SHOOT FIRST,” the event description reads.

As of Sunday morning, the time the event was scheduled for, more than 54,000 said they were interested in joining.

Obviously, the event was tongue-in-cheek, so the CSGV’s tweet advising against shooting at the hurricane was lit up with hilarious responses.

The funny tweets continued on a post from the Pasco County, Florida, sheriff, who warned of the “very dangerous effects” of shooting at a hurricane:
