While the pope doesn't reportedly run his Instagram himself, instead delegating management of the page to a team of employees, the Vatican has said that the erroneous like did not come from within its walls.

Which means it must have come from somewhere else. Implying someone hacked the pope just to like a picture of a sexy Brazilian Instagram model.

"The answers to this tweet on the political spectrum:" Political compass with "Same pope who already congratulated Biden on his victory" on the authoritarian left, "So once again we judge women by what they look like and not their minds or actions? Look deeper and talk" on the libertarian left, "it appears that communists have other urges besides totalitarian ones" on the libertarian right, "Just appreciating god's creation, at least it's a girl" on the authoritarian right and "well just because you are on a diet doesn't mean you can't look at the menu" in the centre

Garibotto seemed very excited about the pope's apparent interest in her, tweeting "At least I'm going to heaven" in response to the news.
