CLEVELAND — Officials at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s Elvis Presley exhibit announced they will be copying the exact layout of the African American History Museum in an attempt to accurately honor rock star Elvis Presley’s legacy, multiple sources confirmed.
“Elvis Presley is one of the most important figures in music history,” said exhibit curator Ethan Crabb. “That’s why we’re doing what he would’ve wanted by stealing the creative work of Black people, repacking it, and selling it to White people. The exhibit is sort of like the music section of the African American History Museum, but less genuine and more palatable to the people that seek out the Rock &’ Roll Hall of Fame. We expect most people will praise the Elvis exhibit as groundbreaking and basically get all the credit for reshaping how we view museums.”
The exhibit is facing sizable backlash from music critics, which angered many Elvis fans across the country.
“What’s the fuss about? He’s literally the king of rock n’ roll. The entire museum should be dedicated to the man,” mumbled Elvis superfan Buford Limroy, sporting a Blue Lives Matter hat. “Besides, all those musicians should be honored that Elvis loved their work so much. If Elvis stole something from me, I’d piss myself with happiness. Hell, I’d let Elvis bang my wife. He’s a pioneer, and ‘originality’ or whatever will never take that away from him. I really wish he was still around and would bang my wife. Just imagining his hips thrusting back and forth does something to me.”
Museum critic Lincoln Hazel, however, doesn’t find this decision out of the ordinary for museums.
“Most museums are just houses for stolen goods,” said Hazel. “Considering the amount of colonial terror they’ve caused, pretty much any given history museum in England is a crime scene. This Elvis exhibit is no different, though at least the curator is honest enough to admit he’s reinforcing racism in the art world. I, on the other hand, prefer to keep that to myself.”
The exhibit will debut and run exclusively in February of every year to take attention away from Black History Month.
