Johnny Weir is known for his eye-grabbing fashions, but he may have outdone himself with his unbelievable hat at the Kentucky Derby on Saturday.
“I was inspired by Pegasus, the greatest of all horses,” explained¬†the figure skater-turned-NBC commentator. “Wings, feathers, plumage‚Ä¶ I went really over the top.”
Weir’s appearance sparked a nationwide #JohnnyWeir trend on Twitter, with his boldness mostly inspiring positive feedback from admirers — but also disgust from some viewers who called him an “embarrassment” and “complete disgrace.”
Who knew a hat could be so polarizing?
