The Dress Debate: Stars Weigh in on White and Gold vs. Blue and Black

by at .  Updated at .

We expected many questions to be floating around the Internet today:

Which American Idol woman performed best during her live audition in Detroit? How many times did jaws hit the floor throughout the How to Get Away with Murder finale?

But this debate we did not see coming:

A Tumblr user shared the following photo of what appears to be a regular dress, only he said it's causing him and his friends to "freak the f-ck out" because they cannot agree on whether it's white and gold... or blue and black.

Millions proceeded to stay up half the night, debating the same question on social media - and a few very famous names were not immune to this back and forth.

“IT’S A BLUE AND BLACK DRESS! ARE YOU F*CKING KIDDING ME,” Mindy Kaling Tweeted, later referring to B.J. Novak as “insane” for thinking otherwise and then reacting in horror when Nathan Fillion also went white and gold.

“I can’t live in a world where Castle thinks that dress is white and gold. How many murderers has he let go," she wrote.

Et tu, Taylor Swift?

"I don’t understand this odd dress debate and I feel like it’s a trick somehow. I’m confused and scared. PS it’s OBVIOUSLY BLUE AND BLACK.”

Then there was Zendaya: “Yo this dress thing on here is confusing the mess outta me. So it’s deff white and gold but then I just saw it as black and blue too…..TRIIIPPPPYYYYY #imdonewiththeinternet.”

And Sarah Hyland: "Guys. I’ve stared at this dress for 5 minutes. Like an idiot. All I see is white and gold. And a satin bolero that shouldn’t be paired w/ it."

And Lucy Hale: "I saw white and gold, then i saw blue and black. now I’m confused… either way…im not gonna be wearing that dress."

And Chrissy Teigen: “F*ck the dress it’s heinous. I have read the explanations and still cannot fathom how ANYONE sees white and gold and I think they’re attention-seeking LIARS."

And James Franco: "Dress controversy… VIOLET and BLACK! Obvs.”

And Julia Louis-Dreyfus: “It’s blue & brown. Period. Next? #whatcoloristhisdress.

And Anna Kendrick: “If that’s not White and Gold the universe is falling apart. Seriously what is happening???”

And Demi Lovato: “Wow. We now live in a world where not only can anyone become famous, but ANYTHING can too. Hold on…. So people actually see white and gold….??!!”

And Josh Groban: “I find it ironic that Kim K got naked to break the Internet and it was a dress that did it.

And Nina Dobrev: "Ok, so for 2 hours I saw BLUE&BLACK. And it suddenly changed and now I only see WHITE&GOLD. WTF? I am I the only one that experienced this?"

And Justin Bieber: "And for everyone asking I see blue and black."

And Kim Kardashian: "What color is that dress? I see white & gold. Kanye sees black & blue, who is color blind?”

And Ellen DeGeneres, who summed it all up with: “From this day on, the world will be divided into two people. Blue & black, or white & gold.”
