The Best Twitter Reactions to the Yanny vs. Laurel Controversy
It's happening again.
In 2015, "the dress" totally divided the world into "blue/black" and "white/gold" categories, creating a controversy that still generates conflict at family dinners to this day.
Now, it's all happening again with the emergence of an audio clip that people just can't seem to figure out. Some people—the right ones—hear "Yanny" while others—who might need to their ears checked because it definitely says Yanny—hear "Laurel."
Of course, the internet is freaking out about this new debate, resulting in some pretty amazing Tweets that totally sum up the Yanny vs. Laurel struggle. Check out the best Twitter reactions below!

If you hear Laurel, you're wrong:
doctor: *plays me the 'yanny vs. laurel' video*
me: why's it saying "laurel"?
doctor: *writes 'patient clearly an idiot' on clipboard*

Sometimes it's better to take a step away… even when you know you're right:
Avoiding Twitter until the Yanny/Laurel thing dies down… but it's yanny
