Get yourself a flask of holy water and scroll on down for some truly cursed comments that will make you ask yourselves, what the flipping heck you just read, dear Pandas. Remember to upvote your fave comments and let us know which ones got a chuckle out of you.
The ‘Cursed Comments’ subreddit has a huge following: their community is made up of nearly 2.2 million ‘cursed individuals’ and has been going strong since April of 2018. However, the community isn’t just about edginess, cringiness, and shock—the mods want you to smile, too.
