Harry Styles uncharacteristically clapped back his dress-wearing critics on his Instagram and the reaction has been amazing, hilarious and everything we'd hoped for.
Harry Styles clapped back at critics of his Vogue cover in a dress who demanded the return of 'manly men' in an uncharacteristically shady (but amazing) Instagram post and naturally, people had a lot to say about him showing his sassier side.
Fans and celebs alike have been reacting to the post with some hilarious and applause-worthy responses...
To summarise, Haz broke the internet posting a dreamy shot of him in a pastel blue suit, nonchalantly and tongue-in-cheekily eating a banana with the caption:
"Bring back manly men."
The 'Adore You' singer is referencing Conservative political commentator Candace Owens who was an outspoken critic of him wearing a Gucci gown.
Fashion journalist and socialite Derek Blasberg joked to Harry, who is looking off to the side:
"A real man will eat a banana and make direct eye contact with you."
One person simply wrote, "checkmate."
Another summed up what we're all thinking, saying: "When i told you i gasped at the caption."
It is very safe to say people's hearts are still pounding seeing the artist they know and love throw some well-deserved shade for literally the first and only time in his life.
It truly was a momentous moment!
A fan wrote on Twitter: "I still can’t process the fact harry styles was actually shady for the first time that I have seen and slapped back at someone who threw hate towards him for days."
"I honestly can’t believe he typed out “bring back manly men” & posted it like that makes me so happy YES HARRY."

Harry Styles shading misogynistic homophobic nincompoops while wearing a feminine suit and biting on a banana with the caption “bring back manly men” would forever be ICONIC pic.twitter.com/HwYzyEXkRg— popreset (@popreset_) December 2, 2020
And of course, this iconic meme reared its head, as if so often does- and honestly, where's the lie?
