What Color Is This Dress? Taylor Swift, Demi Lovato and More Weigh in on DressGate
On the day that the Federal Communication Commission ruled in favor of net neutrality, classifying high-speed Internet as a public utility, the Internet celebrated by being the most Internet it has ever been.
First, the world watched, rapt, as a pair of escaped llamas darted in and out of traffic in Phoenix, Arizona, on Thursday afternoon.
Then, the Internet lost its collective mind over a dress. Inarguably blue and black, according to the girl who purchased it, the dress appears white and gold to many. Others (like this writer) saw one pair of colors before their brain suddenly decided the dress was a separate pair of colors and are now considering obtaining the services of a skilled neurosurgeon.
In this brave, terrifying new world, some of our favorite celebrities have weighed in, clarifying the issue not at all. Be comforted, however, by the fact that we’re all in this together.
Team Blue and Black
Team White and Gold
Team Confusion and/or Existential Despair
Wherever you fall on this hot-button issue, may Feb. 26 forever live in infamy as the day the Internet was the most Internet.
