Look out, internet dwellers. There’s another #TheDress controversy afoot.
This one involves a pair of flip-flops.
In 2015, a picture of a dress posted on Tumblr begat an international dispute over what color it was — black and blue, or white and gold?
Never miss a local story.
Scientists jumped into the fray of “dressgate” to explain why humans perceive colors differently. After millions of tweets tried to settle the dispute, the dressmaker settled the matter: It was black and blue.
So now, on Thursday, Twitter user @positivedemi posted a picture of a pair of Havaianas that set off a new international firestorm.
What color are you seeing, she wrote in Portuguese?
Like #TheDress, people can’t agree.
You’re all wrong.
A Havaianas spokesman confirmed to The Huffington Post that the pair in the now-viral photograph are blue and dark blue — and ironically wouldn’t look bad worn with #TheDress.
This eagle-eyed Twitter user figured it out.
The company itself even had a little fun with the controversy on Monday because, you now, sales.
So, feel better?
Let’s all go do something constructive now.
