Max Holloway has perfect (and hilarious) response to Hawaii missile threat false alarm

It’s a bird … it’s a plane … it’s …

Max Holloway?

That’s right, Hawaii, Holloway isn’t just the UFC featherweight champion you deserve, he’s also the hero you want (via Twitter):

Hawaii I got us

That was Holloway’s response to the Hawaii missile threat this morning that turned out, thankfully, to be a false alarm. But for 38 minutes, folks were sent scrambling for shelter.


The message read, “Ballistic Missile Threat Inbound To Hawaii. Seek Immediate Shelter. This Is Not A Drill.”

The message sent at least a few rushing for shelters as people pondered whether a missile was heading toward the island. Thirty-eight minutes later, Hawaii Emergency Management Agency public information officer Richard Rapoza said the alert was sent in error.

“What happened was … during shift changes (with) outgoing and incoming staff, somebody selected the wrong item on a computer. It was user error,” Rapoza said.

Holloway’s tweet tonight, of course, was a joke – a hilarious one at that. But when the alert was sent, he was just as concerned as everyone else.

What’s going on. Hawaii stay safe

Holloway (19-3 MMA, 15-3 UFC) will next defend his title vs. Frankie Edgar (22-5-1 MMA, 16-5-1 UFC) at UFC 222, which takes place March 3 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and airs on pay-per-view.
