A reclusive tribe in the Amazon finally got hooked up to the internet, thanks to Elon Musk — only to be torn apart by social media and pornography addiction, elders complain.

Brazil’s 2,000-member Marubo tribe has been left bitterly divided by the arrival of the Tesla founder’s Starlink service nine months ago, which connected the remote rainforest community along the Ituí River to the web for the first time.

“When it arrived, everyone was happy,” Tsainama Marubo, 73, told The New York Times. “But now, things have gotten worse. Young people have gotten lazy because of the internet, they’re learning the ways of the white people.”

The Marubo are a chaste tribe, who even frown upon kissing in public — but Alfredo Marubo (all Marubo use the same last name) said he is anxious that the arrival of the service, which delivers super-fast internet to far-flung corners of the planet and has been billed as a game-changer by Musk, could upend standards of decorum.

Alfredo said many young Marubo men have been sharing porn videos in group chats and he has already observed more “aggressive sexual behavior” in some of them.
 
Wonder if they like watching hentais too now lol

Man it'll be interesting to see how they react to reddit and Twitter lol.

Seriously tho, did no one warn them what the world wide web was?

Why the hell would a tribe need internet?
I mean why not, they wanted it.
 
Now we know what primal instincts are in the modern era. Just wait until they discover video games and emulators.

If theyre shut out of the outside world, theres no way TO warn them lol
 
Hopefully, the Amazon tribe members who are addicted to social media and internet porn can easily access good mental healthcare for treating their internet addiction, and other mental illnesseses before they harm themselves and others if their mental problems get worst where they become violent and very depressed
