I'm not one who enjoys being duped by things, so when I first heard the news that some Instagram account had a girl who was giving people fits because she may or may not be real, I needed to check it out for myself. The result? Total confusion.
Like, at first glance, the girl is totally fake. Nothing more than a figment of someone's computer generated imagination who was put on the Internet to do exactly what she's doing—confusing the hell out of everyone.
But when you scroll down and see more pics, there are some that actually could make sense in the real world, changing my mind and making me think that, yep, she's real alright, just with a lot of filtering and cartoon-like drawing over her.
And just when you want to think that the girl is fake, a Twitter account bearing the same name posted his back in July, leaving the suspense even more of a mystery.

There hasn't been something on the Internet that has blown my mind this much since the first time I watched porn in fifth grade on some dial up connection, and that might not have been as crazy as this is.
Whether real or fake, with over 66,000 Instagram followers and an ongoing debate online, this Miquela girl is the biggest Internet troll on planet earth. Ah, I just want to know!
