People Are Shaming This Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, So The Center Claps Back

People Are Shaming This Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, So The Center Claps Back

bored panda - 7 months ago

The Christmas spirit is slowly coming to towns and the trees will be popping up one by one everywhere in no time. The Rockefeller Center, the famous landmark in New York City, is no exception. In a Twitter post on November 14, the center announced the festive news: The 2020 Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree has officially arrived at the Plaza. The 75 ft spruce came from the town of Oneonta and was accompanied by a police escort.

And… the moment the crane lifted it straight, people were startled by its shabby look. In no time, the tree became a target of mockery, with some people claiming it perfectly captures the year of 2020. Jokes were rolling as if theres no tomorrow for social media critics, leaving everyone in tears of laughter.

But nobody dares to make fun of the Christmas spirit. And on November 18, 4 days into the sea of criticism, the Rockefeller Center mic-dropped another tweet. Defending their now-famous tree, they wrote: Wow, you all must look great right after a two-day drive, huh? Lets see the full clapback tweet down below and all the hilarious comments that provoked it.
