Cape Town – ICYMI: The internet is about to break in the most epic way ever...and it has nothing to do with Kim Kardashian.

The world is about to split in two. All because of a dress.

It started very innocently when a Tumblr user uploaded a photo of a dress and asked for help… Is the dress blue and black or white and gold?

Much to everyone's surprise what seemed a simple question has now become the biggest uproar on the internet!

According to Buzzfeed, the argument has become so extensive that even relationships are ending.

Even celebrities are getting involved!

At the end of the day it all comes down to why the hell some people see complete opposite colours!!!!

This is what happened when news spread in the office...

#Dressgate is driving us crazy. #BlueAndBlack #WhiteAndGold
