QAnon Social Media

Is Sylvester Stallone Pledging Loyalty To QAnon With A Bizarre Social Media Posting?

For some time now, we’ve been aware that washed-up actor Sylvester Stallone is a fan of Donald Trump. There are even photos of him visiting the failed, one-term ex-president in the Oval Office:

But now it appears that Stallone also belongs to the QAnon cult which is built around a core belief that the governments of the world are controlled and led by a group of Satan-worshiping pedophiles who eat the adrenal glands of children.

Stallone made a posting on Instagram, Newsweek reports, that left many people shaking their heads in disgust:

Stallone has shared a picture of himself wearing a hat with the letter “Q” on it, captioning the selfie with a phrase closely linked to the QAnon conspiracy theory.

The Rocky and Rambo star uploaded the photo to Instagram, where he has more than 14.3 million followers, with the caption: “Heading into the Storm….”

The post is not a direct endorsement of the far-right movement, which is listed as a terrorist threat by the FBI, but it has sparked speculation that Stallone is making coded references to QAnon.

What in the hell?! Heading into the storm? WTF is that even supposed to mean? It’s safe to bet that if Stallone had to actually try and survive a storm the size of a hurricane, he’d be hiding under a bed.

To the QAnon nuts, “the Storm” has a different meaning:

In QAnon lore, “the Storm” is the moment when high-profile child abusers, including leading Democrats and members of the Hollywood elite, will be arrested and executed on the orders of Donald Trump, who is seen as a savior-like figure.

Faithful QAnon conspiracy theorists were delighted to see Stallone’s cap:

Truth Hammer, a QAnon Telegram account with more than 44,000 followers, wrote: “Check out that hat and that caption. Stallone knows.”

But non-Q faithful were dismayed by the posting:

“Seriously, is my childhood hero going QAnon? Say it ain’t so!” wrote Michael Howard.

Stallone never had much talent, and now he’s associating with assholes who wear tinfoil hats and see boogiemen behind every corner.

It’d be tempting to say Stallone took too many blows to the head, but he was never that bright to begin with.
