Delaware’s Firefly Festival has announced its 2019 lineup – and it’s trending on Twitter, which is pretty cool.
But you might feel a bit differently if you’re a fan of the Joss Whedon sci-fi Western also called “Firefly.” You know, the one that got cancelled on Fox sometime in the aughts and was saved by the sheer power of its fans’ love.
Those fans didn’t take it well when they saw “Firefly” trending and found out it was just a crummy music festival in Delaware.

And the winner of this Twitter meltdown:
