Instagram throwing evolution into reverse, say scientists

ANYONE  who describes themselves as an ‘Instagrammer’ is a step back in human evolution, scientists have claimed.

The Institute for Studies said that so-called ‘social media influencers’ are in fact a completely new type of primate called homo superficialias.

Professor Henry Brubaker added: “They represent a step back because they can only survive in the very specific conditions of the Information Age.

“If they had existed at an earlier point in history they would have been completely wiped out.

“For example, when faced with a sabre-tooth tiger, instead of hunting it to extinction, they would have tried to pose with it for a self-drawn cave painting – and been quite deservedly mauled to death.”
