After “the dress” dilemma started online battles in 2015, social media users found the audio edition three yeras later with the “Yanny or Laurel” debate that is taking the internet by storm.
A short video from an Instagram Story posted Monday asked viewers, “What do you hear!?!” with the options of Yanny or Laurel to choose, and celebrities have since been joining the heated discussion.

RolandCamry, the Redditor who originally posted the audio clip on Saturday (May 12), said it came from the “laurel” entry on vocabulary.com. The speaker button next to the word plays a recording of “laurel," but the low-quality recording of this audio posted all over the internet comes out as “Yanny” to some people.
