First and foremost, you're kind of an idiot if you spend your time going on and on about artists "worshiping satan."

True Satanism, as outlined in Anton LaVey's The Satanic Bible, does not regard Satan as a thing that exists. Thus, LaVeyan satanists most certainly do not "worship satan." Instead, "Satan" is used as a symbol representing "pride, liberty, and individualism." Think of it as "I-Theism," described by the Church of Satan as the next step beyond atheism.

Still, even though every single thing I just mentioned is a quick Google search away, aforementioned idiots still spent a lot of time trying to link artists like Trippie Redd and Lil Uzi Vert (who's understandably fond of the beauty of a good inverted cross, which isn't actually a Satanism symbol) with a nonexistent being.

In an Instagram Stories update Wednesday, Redd broke down his use of "666" for everyone too lazy to do their own research. "A lot of y'all are blind to reality," he said. "Six protons, six neutrons, six electrons. Melanin in black people's skin. Do your research. Now, why I say TR666? Because Trippie Redd is black, but Trippie Redd is also dark. I make dark music, but I'm black, so I use it as a metaphor. Make sure you do your research, man, because these people could be telling you, like, 666 is the mark of the beast." Redd added that this is simply "black power shit," not trolling.

Fuck yeah. Also, while we're at it, here's a spoiler about human existence: The Man in the Sky isn't real either.

Anyway, revist Redd and Travis Scott's "Dark Knight Dummo" video below.
