Cloe Feldman, whose Twitter account now commands 206,000 followers, posted the Laurel-Yanny query and clip, which contained a looping robotic voice, on Monday night.

"I hear Yanny", she added.

Beauty and fashion designer Cloe Feldman tweeted a video Monday with an audio track and asked people to vote, 'What do you hear?!

And, in the words of Houston Texan JJ Watt, "Yanny vs. Laurel is starting some real fights", as social media users continue to debate which name they heard. Some people think the word is "Yanny", while others hear "Laurel".

Sports writer Ted Berg wrote "there's no way anyone could hear that as Yanny", and "anyone who says they do is lying for shock value".
