Tourist Kelli McGowen of Lubbock, Texas causes scene at 9/11 Museum in New York City.
Suson is not at the Museum often and moments after she met Suson, she snuck away into a corner to Google him on her smartphone. Apparently Kelli McGowen, not too press savvy, stumbled upon on a decade-old fake story on Gary Suson from a tabloid (whom Suson sued for millions) believed it and felt she had been duped. She then came back to the area that Mr. Suson was standing and talking to small children in and began screaming at him loudly. Some 9/11 families, parents and staff asked McGowen to cease acting like this but to no avail.

After guests felt unsafe, Police were summoned to the 9/11 Museum to escort a screaming Ms. McGowen from the premises.
Reached for comment in NYC, Suson said, “It goes to show you that some people will believe whatever they read. It even shows you the power of silly tabloid journalism. It’s sad.”
