Facebook user Nicole Coulthard innocently shared an image of her trainers online after she had a “big argument” with her mom about their color. The simple snap provoked a wild debate in the comments section as users clashed over their observations. Are they turquoise and grey, or pink and white?
Speaking to Metro, Coulthard explained how she and her mother had a clash of opinions over the color:
“She texted back saying they are pink mum, but when she looked at the pic she saw blue too. She sent it to me and I was convinced they are pink, we had a big argument as she said I only said pink because I knew she had bought pink shoes so that’s why I decided to put it up.”
But if Coulthard had shared the image to help get a definitive answer, she was mistaken. Quickly the comments section on the post turned into a riot as her friends, and even some strangers, began to argue over what they saw.
The post garnered over 1,000 comments in just one day, prompting viral pages to share it and spread it even further. However, that also didn’t help people come to a conclusion.
The true color of the trainers is unknown, so for now the mystery is unsolved and it is unclear who is right and wrong with their color observations. No doubt the truth will be exposed soon, in the mean time we can all agree that they are pink and white, right?!
