‘The dress’ is old news … Now the question is, do you hear ‘Yanny’ or Laurel?’ — Your favorite celebs are shook by the new viral craze and here’s what they heard!
Another day, another viral trend! The internet went absolutely nuts over the new “Yanny” and “Laurel” debate on May 15. Now, some of your favorite stars are weighing in on the viral craze. The internet comedian herself, Chrissy Teigen, 32, took a listen to the clip and instantly knew “it’s so clearly laurel,” she tweeted, adding, “I can’t even figure out how one would hear yanny.” However, someone else begged to differ.
Mindy Kaling, 38, who said she heard “yanny” on the audio clip, responded to Chrissy’s tweet, writing, “I bought your cookbook. I loved it. And now you betray me?” The model then tried to jokingly make up for their playful disagreement with this clever line — “They’re saying younger, more beautiful people hear yanny!!!!!” Chrissy tweeted back. As the viral trend picked up speed, more stars jumped in to participate.
YouTube sensation, Logan Paul, 23, (obviously) created a hilarious video about the craze. He spoofed a fight with his friend over the clip, later slapping the friend in the face when he disagreed that the clip said “Yanny” instead of “Laurel”. Logan tweeted, “BRUH 1 MORE PERSON TELL ME IT’S YANNY I DARE U,” along with the video. Wendy Williams, 53, even said that she heard “Yanny” owhile chatting about the viral trend on her daytime talk show on May 16.
Cloe Feldman, a social media influencer and vlogger, tweeted the audio clip on Tuesday, which sparked the debate. However, in a video, she explained that she was searching for the original creator. “I did not create Yanny vs. Laurel,” she said. “I don’t know how this was made.”
