Giving his acceptance speech after wining the award for best actor at the 76th Golden Globes award, Christian Bale thanked Satan for giving him inspiration.
“Thank you, Satan,” Bale said, speaking in his natural British accent, which also caught many by surprise.
Reacting to Bale’s acceptance speech, the Church of Satan wrote on Twitter,
“To us, Satan is a symbol of pride, liberty and individualism, and it serves as an external metaphorical projection of our highest personal potential. As Mr. Bale’s own talent and skill won him the award, this is fitting. Hail Christian! Hail Satan!”
