Mr Roberts told NPR that he doubted an actual army would gather to run into Area 51 in September, but he said the Facebook event had put him in touch "with some pretty great people" to plan a safer event.
Matty Roberts created a Facebook event calling for Area 51 to be stormed as a joke, now that close to two million people have clicked "going" he's terrified the Federal Bureau of Investigation will storm his home.
The site is part of the vast Nevada Test and Training Range and has become the center of UFO conspiracy theories.
To entice potential adopters, the Facebook post shows an array of cute animals with their noses up towards the camera wearing tinfoil hats, in reference to urban legends of tinfoil blocking Alien signals.
Network users in the United States mounted an assault on a secret air force base to find out what really happens to a secret facility. "I'm not responsible if people decide to actually storm area 51".
The base has been a testing ground for a host of top-secret aircraft, including the U-2 in the 1950s and later the B-2 stealth bomber.
Conspiracy theorists believe the US government uses the base to hide aliens and their spacecraft.

Royal Caribbean has now canceled the scheduled call to San Juan, Puerto Rico today for Harmony of the Seas due to ongoing unrest. Maarten. "I have the commitment, stronger than ever, to carry out the public policy", he said.
The page now boasts 1.7 million people who "are going" and another 1.3 million who are "interested". In the details of this event, Roberts suggested "if we Naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets".
Roberts is now anxious about the Federal Bureau of Investigation knocking on his door.
I'd think calling the craze a wild fire would be more appropriate, given that Roberts has lost all control of the situation.
"I posted it on like June 27, and it was kind of a joke... and then it just completely took out, out of nowhere".
"I was just like, the FBI's going to show up at my house and it got a little spooky from there", he continued.
But the Air Force isn't seeing the amusing side. The Air Force is taking the page seriously and issued a warning: "The US Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets". "However, on their official website already sold merch with slogans in the spirit of "I survived Area 51" "I gesture as I love aliens", "Born on the wrong planet", "#штурмуемзону51" and others.
