While there are plenty of good reasons for Andrew Cuomo to be under intense online scrutiny, I regret to inform you that the current discourse has less to do with his policies and more to do with a bizarre fascination with his nipples. Or rather, the idea that they're possibly pierced.
That said, the publication's choice of photo inadvertently sparked substantial online discussion about the strange way his white polo shirt appears to be clinging to his right nipple.
Gov. Inslee responded to Trump's comments that some governors are not grateful enough for federal assistance: "I don't recall, in the oath of office, saying, 'I'll do my job to protect the citizens of Washington state as long as I get enough love.'" https://t.co/EC7l5FsJN7— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) March 29, 2020
From comments about the "distracting" protrusions to prayers that it was just cold to an overwhelming amount of pained befuddlement, Cuomo's potential nipple piercings have gone viral — much to the chagrin of a number of Twitter users who expressed dismay over having to clean their search history.
Unfortunately, as one Reddit user pointed out, if the photos from Cuomo's Flickr account are any indication, "There's definitely something going on under there." So while the debate rages on, here's to hoping that this one is debunked as a "trick of the light," stat.

Andrew Cuomo looked disgusting--nipple piercings protruding--in his white shirt before Emergency Room Physicians. Very very disrespectful. pic.twitter.com/4EAWGaUaxL— windsurfing with Sting in Montserrat (@alexjs85) March 30, 2020
I realize this is off topic, but does Gov. Cuomo have pierced nipples or something? That photo is...distracting.— NorthernSnowdog (@NorthernSnowdog) March 29, 2020
So... Is the NY State unemployment site not working for everyone else too, or is it just me.— Zach D Roberts (@zdroberts) March 28, 2020
I assume it's just me for making fun of Cuomo's nipple piercings in this photo. pic.twitter.com/DvIWJvE2uw
