The images were taken last year for Saturday Night Live, but they only came up now.
Harry Styles has taken the internet down when his queer photos titled “The Mermaid” went viral on social media.
In photos that appeared on Twitter this week, the British music superstar can be seen dressed as a partying Ariel from “The Little Mermaid.”
But, Newsweek said it was a photoshoot the 27-year-old singer did for “Saturday Night Live” in November 2019.
But it is unclear why these photos hit social media now.
In December 2019, Harry Styles appeared on the cover of US Vogue while dressed in a sparkling lace embellished maxi dress, created by his friend Alessandro Michele, Gucci’s creative director.
“I like to play dress-up in general,” Harry Styles said at the time. “Sometimes I go to the stores and find myself looking at women’s clothing thinking it’s amazing. It’s like anything: every time you put barriers in your own life, you are simply limiting yourself. ”
However, its cover garnered much criticism from conservative voices. Twitter users came out with their reactions: some showed love and appreciation, while others lashed out at the singer.
