Comic Sans on Instagram is the update nobody asked for

Instagram has rolled out a bunch of new fonts for its Stories feature – and one of them is already becoming quite the story in itself. Among all of the other terrible events of 2020, Instagram users have one more thing to be unhappy about: one of the fonts bears an uncanny resemblance to Comic Sans.

While it's been possible to change the font in your Instagram bio for a while, options have been limited as far as Stories are concerned. The new styles include neon, serif and outline options – but it's one particular fun-looking font that's proving a source of typographical torment for users (check out the best fun fonts for more examples that definitely aren't Comic Sans).
