Last night, a 9/11 truther named Matthew Mills from Brooklyn managed to sneak into the Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium, walk through various security checkpoints and, eventually, interrupt Super Bowl MVP Malcolm Smith during his postgame press conference in order to yell, "Investigate 9/11! 9/11 was perpetrated by people within our own government!" It was surprising, considering how tight security reportedly is at the Super Bowl. But as it turns out, it wasn't all that hard for Mills to make his way into the Super Bowl and hijack Smith's press conference.
So how did he do it? Well, he spoke with NJ.com very early this morning after he bailed himself out of jail following the incident last night. And according to him, it was actually pretty easy to sneak into this year's Super Bowl. Here are the steps he took:
- First, he woke up yesterday morning and put on a media credential from a festival that he attended once that closely resembled this year's Super Bowl media credential.
- Then, he started to make his way to MetLife Stadium and, eventually, managed to board a bus that was specifically for the media in Secaucus, N.J.
- Next, he arrived at MetLife Stadium and snuck into the Super Bowl by running up to security guards at each level of security and telling them that he was running late. "I just said I was running late for work and I had to get in there," he told NJ.com. "It was that simple."
- And finally, he gained access to a tent that was set up for postgame press conferences. Once there, he was able to run on stage during Smith's press conference, steal the microphone for a few seconds, and deliver his message about 9/11.
That was it. He didn't need an elaborate plan. He didn't need to pay off any security guards. He didn't need to jump any fences. All Mills needs to do to gain access to the Super Bowl—without a ticket—was a story about how he was late and needed to get to work. How insane is that?!
