The U.S. Navy is joining the fight against breast cancer. That’s a good thing, but it didn’t stop people from poking fun at the new neon pink fighter jet unveiled as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
No, the jet isn’t active. It’s a retired Grumman F9F-8, and it’s just sitting there on the deck of the USS Lexington, a World War II-era aircraft carrier anchored off the coast of Texas.

Twitter users did some tweeting about America’s “woke” new fighter jet.

@CNN i feel like bombing cancer is not the most effective way to cure it.

.@CNN Hey, I'm all for supporting breast cancer research and a cure…but this is a bit much.

@CNN I hate when we telegraph our battle plans. We should bomb Cancer without warning. We're giving up the advantage of surprise.

@CNN Someone told them we can't literally fight cancer with jets, right?
