Instagram is the perfect platform for fleshing out the flat earth memes, thanks to a new feature for the app that lets users share images of flat earths that are flat.
This new feature, which has just been announced, allows users to create images of anything on Instagram that resembles the earth’s curvature, and then share them with friends.
The flat earth community is now up in arms about the feature.
The flat earth phenomenon has long been a hot topic of conversation on social media, and the image of flat-Earth memes proliferated through the social media platform during the 2016 presidential campaign, when Donald Trump used the term flat earth to describe an area that has a flat surface and is not as flat as the United States.
After Trump lost the election, many of the flat-Earthers started questioning the validity of the earth, and some of them were even convicted of conspiracy.
According to Forbes, there are about a dozen flat earth communities on Instagram, but the feature is limited to photos that have been submitted to the company by users who have “flatness” in their Instagram name.
According to a post on the Flat Earth Memes subreddit, the Flat Earthers have also asked the company to remove the feature for “fraudulent use of our names and trademarks.”
