The confusing pic has been retweeted more than 20,000 times, and received more than 31,000 likes. The pic is drawing similarities to the “#dressgate” of 2015, which also caused a confused frenzy on the internet, as people couldn’t decide whether a striped dress was white and gold, or black and blue.
Some Twitter users are now sharing this new “Who’s the mom?” pic with the hashtag #blackdontcrack, which refers to some African Americans’ smooth skin.
The Mahomes family created an Instagram page to share more photos of the three ladies after seeing all of the attention they were getting.
And their second post proved to be a solution to the puzzle.
The video shows the trio posing for a picture while one holds the camera — and then they all start laughing after realizing they are actually being videotaped instead of photographed.

The woman on the left, who laughs last, takes the longest to get the joke — and the caption reads, “When your mom thinks it’s a picture…lol.”
