His Neck, Her Back? The Internet is Divided, Again, Over This Viral Pic
While it may seem painfully obvious to most that it's a girl's back, it remains also as obvious to many others that it's, in fact, the back of someone's neck.
The latest image to have temporarily distracted the world is that of a neck and/or a back (definitely not to be confused with My Neck/My Back, the 2002 seminal track by Khia). An image shared on Twitter by rapper MartyMula, who goes by the username of @LilMaarty.
The seemingly innocuous photo went viral last week with people who see it conflicted over what they are exactly seeing. The image shows a frizzy, long wave of hair covering a girl's bare back; or it could be the back of the neck of someone with an unfortunately brief haircut. For further perplexity, check out the picture below.

What do you think it shows?
While it may seem painfully obvious to most that it's a girl's back, it remains also as obvious to many others that it's, in fact, the back of someone's neck. The debate's been raging for a week now, with keyboards in both camps clicking in conflict.
Took a good 30 seconds to realize it was a back now I’m tryna see how I seen a neck in the first place— Jefe Joven (@Theniwaslike_) October 7, 2018

Others spoke of the sheer bewilderment they faced when confronted by the back (or back of the neck).

And the battle continued.
Literally stared at this for a min like "if this ain't a neck then what is IT?!"— Gerard or Champ (@FollowYourFresh) October 7, 2018

Woke: my neck IS my back https://t.co/MkUMB04fnS
Meanwhile, a user with the Twitter handle of @lilgothyspice has claimed to be the girl from the photo.
While her claim is yet to be a 100% verified, to get a blue tick if you will, the source of all this chaos is having the last laugh; @LilMaarty is quite smug over his spike in followers since his picture went viral.
