Twitter user @____Julius___ shared photos of a group of people eating grass with the caption South African pastor command members to eat grass so they can become rich, and South Africans were quick to share their opinions with jokes and memes.

While the name of the so-called pastor behind this grass-feasting is unknown, the photos clearly show people eating the grass, for whatever reason.
