Last Tuesday, the 22-year-old welder and musician from DeLand in central Florida, made a Facebook event called "Shoot at Hurricane Irma".
Amid the chaos for survival, a freakish event in Florida went viral online and quickly became a hot topic of discussion across the USA on Sunday evening.
According to USA Today, more than 54,000 people signed up for the event, prompting the sheriff's office to tweet a warning to the public.
"YO SO THIS GOOFY LOOKING WINDY HEADASS NAMED IRMA SAID THEY PULLING UP ON US, LETS SHOW IRMA THAT WE SHOOT FIRST", the event description read.
The event's creator told the BBC he started it as a joke. It was cool to see the response this got from facebook.
"The response is a complete and total surprise to me.I never envisioned this event becoming some kind of insane idea larger than myself. It has become something a little out of my control", the Independent quoted him as saying.
Many appeared to take the freakish idea in the spirit Edwards seemed to intend, posting pictures of themselves in underwear or camouflage waving guns.
