Today Lupita Nyong’o was named People magazine’s Most Beautiful Woman of 2014, but of course there are those who had a problem with that.

Even Lupita can’t get away from the haters, but her fans hit back with the hilarious #ashylarryboybands. Donnell Rawlings made his character Ashy Larry popular in his comedy videos, but according to @ThePBG, Ashy Larrys are those men who complain about black women just for the sake of complaining.

Twitter user @Soulamami’s creation of the #AshyLarryBoyBands has turned into one of the top trending topics today. Take a look at the remixed boy-band names:
