Does Pope Francis wank? Who knows, but what we do know is that someone over in the Vatican was accidentally horny on the main. The Pope’s main, to be exact.

Here’s what happened: the Pope’s official Instagram account, @franciscus, appeared to like a sexy schoolgirl post from 27-year-old Brazilian nude model Natalia Garibotto (known professionally as Nata Gata).

While the post has now been unliked by his account, the evidence is still floating around everywhere:

This was… unexpected to say the least.

Not only does Pope Francis claim to be celibate, but he’s also not included on Wikipedia’s list of sexually active popes. Make of that what you will.

Garibotto eventually responded upon hearing The Good News, saying: “At least I’m going to heaven.”

“My mum may hate my ass pics but the Pope be double-tapping,” she later told Barstool Sports.

Having the Pope like one of your Instagram posts would be an honour, and it’d probably propel you to influence stardom overnight.

However Garibotti reportedly already rakes in over half a mill each year from selling her pics and being an influencer, so this us unlikely her big break, at least as far as her life on Earth is concerned.

Assuming the Instagram like was indeed real (both Barstool Sports and Garibotti herself uploaded their own, separate video evidence), someone may be copping a smiting over in Rome.

Things really picked up on Twitter, where people came out in droves to support the horny Pope and/or his horny social media manager.

But credit where credit’s due.

The Pope – however horny he may be – has spent the past few years gradually reforming the Catholic Church’s teachings on sexuality and pushing for broader change in society.

Sure, there are plenty of swings and roundabouts when it comes to gay rights or contraception, but hey, at least we now know sexy Insta accounts aren’t totally out of the question.
