Remember the brouhaha over The Dress? And The Jacket? Well, now there’s the case of the mysteriously colored flip-flops, and it’s TEARING FAMILIES APART. Some people claim they’re black and blue, others are convinced they are black and brown (although those people ought to be committed). There’s also the claims that they are white and gold, or blue and gray, or even white and gray. I think everybody’s lost their damn minds because CLEARLY they are blue and brown.
Twitter user @positivedemi prompted the debate last Thursday by posting the above image online and asking people what colors they saw. BuzzFeed News repeated her question over the weekend, and the answer is now being fiercely debated across the world.
As debate continued over the colors of the flip-flops late Sunday, the Brazilian footwear brand tried to put the matter to rest. A spokesman confirmed to The Huffington Post via Facebook that the pair featured in the viral photograph was actually blue and dark blue (see below).
Now, let’s get back to tearing families apart over things that matter. Like Trump’s cabinet picks.
