LOS ANGELES — It was the question that divided the nation in 2015, or at least internet users: “What color is this dress?”
Scientists stepped in to quell the online unrest by explaining how brains can interpret colors differently — but that knowledge has apparently been lost or forgotten because a new color controversy has thrown Twitter into turmoil — this time it’s a bag, not a dress.
@Whyofcorso posted a photo of the Kate Spade purse to which someone responded (sarcastically?) “White. Daring.” Corso replied, “It’s blue.”
Her tweet has received thousands of likes and retweets — as well as the inevitable insults from Twitter trolls.
Unlike the dress, however, the color difference is not as stark.
Corso said the bag, according to Spade, is “mystic blue.” So, it’s apparently white or a light-colored blue — but there have been no compromises when it comes to the latest color spectrum squabble.
One person went so far as to use an editing program to find the definitive answer.
So, what color do you see? Is this bag blue or white?
