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. Cloe Feldman, a social media influencer, posted the audio clip on her Instagram story and Twitter, and now the internet is exploding.

"HOW DOES ANYONE HEAR LAUREL ITS YANNY", Twitter user zaynilla added.

There's an audio clip going around the internet that is causing people to hear "Yanny" or "Laurel".

So, what do you hear?
