Darkcel is a self-descriptor used by a few involuntary celibates who abide by a self-stylized, vague, pessimistic, male-separatist philosophy. Darkceldom is usually similar to, "taking the whitepill", or MGTOW, except with less focus on self-improvement and more negativity. They are often much more male-separatist than blackpillers.
The term was primarily used in late 2020 by a man who calls himself Darkcel and who runs the The Darkcel Podcast.
Darkcel describes the process of becoming a darkcel as being "unplugged" from women and no longer chasing them.

Darkcel Gaming Facebook Page and murder of Bianca Devins
There was a darkcel page called, "darkcel gaming", administrated by a man named Brandon Andrew Clark, with around 7,000 followers. At some point, Brandon wrote
“”This may be my final post, they're coming for me and I have done something very very terrible...I am sorry.

His Instagram account detailed him allegedly traveling to the house of a 17 year old female named, "Bianca Devins", (known on Instagram as @yesjuliet), and allegedly slitting her throat. The drama was picked up by multiple digital news outlets. Wikipedia put a
tribute page to Biana article up describing the obscure murder. The article mentions that users on incels.co and 8chan allegedly celebrated the murder.
The murder and the Facebook page has no proven relation to, "Darkcel", or his, "Darkcel podcast". The Feed notes that Darkcel Gaming however also used a similar voicechanger. A user on incels.co named, "deepSea", claims that Brandon from Darkcel gaming was inspired by the Darkcel podcast. There seems to be no evidence of a formal connection between Darkcel and his podacast and the murder however.
Darkcel from the Darkcel podcast claims he had no awareness of the Darkcel Gaming Page etc, until it all hit the news.
