Sounds good? This girl did not think so! She did not even know that they were coming.

Miss Popular?

An invitation for a girls 16th birthday got... Well, a little out of control. More than 4000 poeple showed up in the dutch town Haren.

The girl had forgotten to mark her birthday invitation as "Private" on Facebook. She only invited her closest friends and family, but the invitation got passed around like crazy, and eventually more than 30,000(!) had gotten the invitation via. Facebook. As a comparison, only around 18,000 lives in the city of Haren.

According to dutch media more than 25 "guests" were injured, three of them seriously. Stores have been pillaged, cars have been set ablaze and light posts and signs were vandalized.

It took approximately 600 police officers to stop the "party", and around 20 "guests" got arrested.

And all the girl wanted, was to celebrate her birthday!
