The Reddit group WallStreetBets trend has hit Kalamazoo. The billboard at Wings Event Center was sporting the #SaveAMC to highway traffic early this morning. Poking fun at Wall Street about hedge funds was the intent of one Brett Reath who purchased the billboard for just a few hundred bucks.

“I thought it was a really interesting way to kind of shed light on the situation that’s been going on,” Reath said.-WOODTV 8

The billboard brings attention to the short squeeze of hedge funds that have been happening with Game Stop & AMC Theater stocks. As you would expect, the reaction in the Reddit Kalamazoo group was hilarious.
