The Internet Can't Tell If This Girl Is Real Or Fake

Meet Lil Maquela

Meet Lil Maquela

This is Lil Maquela. She's got the internet in a spin, or at least, those who follow her on Instagram.

Her situation is kind of strange in that, she's got a lot of followers for someone we don't even know is real...

A Second Longer

A Second Longer

..And therein lies the point of fascination and much conjecture - is she real or fake?

Of course, with only a very quick glance you're probably going to assume it's a real girl, right?

But look at her a second longer...

Heavy-Handed?

Heavy-Handed?

Her face is way too symmetrical to be a real person. So too is her smoothest of smooth skin.

Or is it?

I mean, almost every image you see these days has some sort of airbrushing done to it. Perhaps this is a real girl and she just got a bit heavy-handed with that airbrushing...

Don't Dismiss It Straight Away

Don't Dismiss It Straight Away

Aside from a few random memes here and there, Lil Maquela's Instagram account is almost solely self-portraits. Or are they just animations?

You might dismiss it straight away as fake, or you might be one of the almost 70,000 Instagram followers who can't quite seem to decide - and it's killing them!

"Are You Real?"

"Are You Real?"

So many of her followers have been questioning her realness...

"Are you real?" is a simple but often asked question (Yeah, like she's going to answer "no" if that was the case).

"Are you a sim?" was another interesting one. The other questions asked of her get weirder from there....
