"If she was a Sim, how would other people have selfies with her?!"
UPDATE: People are still obsessed with Lil Miquela. She's now amassed almost 70k Instagram followers and commenters are still shook. There's still been no explanation since we first discovered the Instagram model on June 21 about what the frickity frack is going on. IS SHE A SIM OR NO?! HELP!
We think we may have just discovered one of 2016's biggest Instagram conspiracy theories and you're gonna be obsessed with it all day.
Meet Lil Miquela. People are absolutely FREAKING out about her Instagram.
At first you're like... no, this is 100% a Sim character.
But then you're like: WAIT... Maybe she is real and she's just photoshopping her pictures?
But then you scroll down and see this picture and you're like naaaah, that's definitely a Sim.
BUT THEN IN THE NEXT PICTURE, SHE SEEMS SO REAL?!
She's even out here posing with actual real life humans.
Here she is with West Coast rapper, Kreayshawn.

SO WHAT'S THE TRUTH?! Lil Miquela only has 37 pictures on her Instagram account, which was set up 8 weeks ago and she currently has 13k followers. She also has a Tumblr account. The general online consensus is that she's either a real human that has been edited within an inch of her life... or she's a viral marketing campaign for The Sims 5 which is rumoured to be dropping soon.
After a little sleuthing on our part, it seems coincidental that Lil Miquela has posed with Kreayshawn, who lowkey really loves The Sims!
ANYWAY - Twitter can't get their head around her whole vibe and the conspiracy theories are LIT!
