People Really Hate Pantone's New Color of the Year

Pantone announced its color of the year and it's . . . weird. Named Marsala after the wine, it's a brownish/burgundyish hue that reminds us of old Aunt Sally's lipstick. Lots of people on Twitter can't stand it — haters gon' hate.

The 2015 Pantone color of the year is mauve. Dollar store makeup bins and great aunts everywhere are rejoicing.

Pantone announces #Marsala as the "color of the year." Personally, I like it with chicken.

the @pantone color of the year is described as "exuding confidence & stability while feeding the body, mind & soul." it's not a yoga class.

If you are feeling full of hopelessness & gloom, @Pantone is right with you - dirt is #coloroftheyear.
