Earlier this week, someone trolled us all by releasing this “Met Gala seating chart,” which supposedly mapped out where the celebrities would be seated at this year’s Met Gala, which takes place on Sept. 13.

But that didn't stop the internet from completely tearing it apart once the chart made its way around the digital world. Almost immediately, people were ablaze at the mere suggestion of where some of stars were "seated."
Like @paulreactss, who said, "I just can't believe this," in his video reaction to the chart.
Many of the strong reactions are in response to the rumors that have been circulating for a few weeks that this year's Met Gala is likely to feature appearances by some famous influencers. Addison Rae, the D'Amelio sisters, Emma Chamberlain, and Liza Koshy are among some of the possible rumored attendees.
One of the biggest things that has people fuming is where Addison Rae is supposedly "seated," particularly that she's at the HEAD OF THE MF table with Beyoncé and Lady Gaga.
Which then led to this iconic meme...

Which people milked for all it's worth.

If James Charles and Addison Rae and are being invited to the Met Gala they might as well invite me tf
And then that led to this video that pokes fun at Addison's potential OOTD, since this year's Met Gala theme is American fashion in honor of the exhibit In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.
Addison herself couldn't help but join in.
I would do anything for u @ladygaga https://t.co/vRZfrsxhKu
Another questionable seating arrangement is that of the D'Amelio sisters, which @jordynwoodknow points out here.
The jokes just keep coming, and I swear each one gets better.
