Satan Has An Instagram Account, And It’s Funny As Hell
Satan says he's not evil. Just misunderstood. The Devil is present in many forms and can be compared to many mythological gods, but he's arguably best known for his role in Christianity. However, Christianity continues to decline at a rapid pace (at least in the US) so, to stay relevant, Satan is branching out and has been terrorizing people on social media.
A parody Satan's Twitter account had been gaining more and more popularity but at some point, it was taken down from the website, forcing him to move his operations to Instagram, where he continues to deliver sassy insults and clever insights to this day. Continue scrolling to check out his latest posts and when you're done, fire up Bored Panda's earlier article to go through his best tweets.

S8n is actually a project developed by Fallen Media, one of the largest social media networks on the Internet, which aims to tell funny, engaging, and shareable digital stories to build unique campaigns. "We created s8n to voice a persona that we thought would be relatable," Rowan Winch, Chief Marketing Officer & Co-Founder at Fallen Media, told Bored Panda. "Hence the tagline, 'Not evil, just misunderstood.'"
I guess people wouldn't misunderstand Satan so often if he wasn't so cunning. After all, it's commonly thought that the Devil first showed up in the Bible in the book of Genesis as the serpent who convinced Eve—who then convinced Adam—to eat the forbidden fruit from the 'tree of the knowledge' in the Garden of Eden. According to the story, after Eve fell for the Devil's ways, she and Adam were banished from the Garden of Eden and doomed to mortality.
However, Fallen Media wants their character to be less of a manipulating bastard. "We would describe our s8n content as simple yet relatable and funny remarks," they said. "At first, we created Satan a Twitter account but we moved to Instagram due to Twitter suspending our account. We're not entirely sure why the account was suspended but we're looking to work on getting it reinstated." Meanwhile, it looks like Instagram is a lot more welcoming when it comes to the wicked! The account already has over 263K followers and there are no signs of some smug corporates trying to shut it down.
