Further proof that Scientology is extremely lame

Nobody gives a shit about your Instagram “epic art wall,” dude.

I am the type of person who likes learning about the Scientology. I used to live in Los Angeles, and on several occasions ended up accidentally driving on L. Ron Hubbard Way, a real street in Los Angeles that’s right next to the Church of Scientology’s infamous blue headquarters, which, in case you’ve never seen it, looks like this. I also have seen both HBO’s Going Clear and Louis Theroux’s My Scientology Movie, which I’m pretty sure means I am a Scientology expert.

All of this is to say that I feel fairly comfortable declaring that Scientology is not very cool. There are definitely cool Scientologists like Beck and Nancy Cartwright (the voice of Bart Simpson), but their coolness will never be transposed upon Scientology itself. And yet, Scientology would like you to think they are cool, because right now everyone thinks they’re extremely creepy.

Tomorrow, Scientology will be launching a TV network, which as far as I can tell, was just announced today. According to the Hollywood Reporter, this has been in the works for quite some time, and according to common sense, the Scientology TV channel is going to be both really weird and really bad. And so, I went to the Church of Scientology’s Twitter account to see if they’d posted anything goofy about it, and great googly-moogly, did the Church of Scientology’s official Twitter account post something incredibly goofy about their new TV channel.

Look at this tweet containing the phrases “EPIC 🤘 art wall” and “follow love,” which contains an image of an Instagram “art wall” that is about as epic as a glass of iced tea. Drink it in. Savor it and cherish it, for it is the worst social media post of all time.
