Manchester United have taken to Twitter to join in the debate on the dress that caused the social media site to explode last night.

United tweeted to express their “love” of white and gold by posting a picture of their away kit from last season. Obviously this was a joke on the part of United as they’re fans will know that their kit was indeed blue and black last season.

The great debate 

The debate over the picture of a dress posted on Twitter last night that divided opinion on whether it was white and gold or blue and black led to United getting in on the act. The football club that have 4.5 million followers on the social networking site, brought the discussion to the world of football by posting their joke.

The colour of the dress was debated all over the world and United posted a picture of Juan Mata in United’s blue and black kit saying: “We still love last season’s white and gold kit…”.

However not everyone thought the tweet was funny as the the people that run the club’s Twitter account did as hundreds of people replied to the tweet cringing at their attempt of a joke.

Surely it won’t be long until more club’s get in on the debate with Inter Milan being famous for playing in blue and black and Real Madrid using the white and gold on more than occasion.


The post caused a frenzy amongst Twitter users and a lot of celebrities got involved too.

The likes of Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift and Kim Kardashian all gave their opinion. Kardashian saw white and gold but she tweeted that her husband, Kanye West saw blue and black, so who are we to argue?
