Astroturfing is the act of creating a fake grassroots movement or pretending to be a participant in a movement you don't believe in for the purpose of 'shifting the narrative'. It is a form of larping and a near synonym of false flagging.


In the incelosphereEdit

Users of /r/Inceltears and other incelphobic terrorist groups have a tendency to take part in astroturfing by posting false flags on, /r/Braincels and other communities in the incelosphere to make incels look bad.
