Illuminati theories are a novel amusement in the weird underbelly of the Internet. Once you spend some time reading about the batshit crazy theories out there (…and take it with a grain of salt, natch), you’re diving down a deep, dark rabbit hole you might never escape from. There are truly some harebrained ones that make Alex Jones look like a rational, levelheaded human being.
In terms of sheer ridiculousness, one of my favorite sites is Boy Meets World Illuminati, a Tumblr site that proclaims to “expose” how Cory, Topanga, and Mr. Feeny are connected “being used by the Illuminati as Illuminati Puppets.”
In the same vein as Boy Meets World Illuminati (and presumably run by the same weirdo troll), there’s also Pretty Little Liars Illuminati, a Tumblr that claims “actors and actresses from PLL are Illuminati puppets who worship Satan. They are not in the Illuminati.” They have all sorts of batshit insane theories about Shay Mitchell doing various signs-of-the-devil.
Today someone from the site e-mail us an insane YouTube video that tries to connect the dots between Pretty Little Liars and Paul Walker’s death because once upon a time Shay Mitchell said Walker was her celebrity crush. When you watch the reasons, it’s perhaps the most idiot thing I’ve ever heard in my entire life.
