Cheryl Cole's #CherylKermit X Factor Hashtag Is Rather Unfortunate

The most unexpected thing to happen in Saturday's X Factor was, without doubt, the abuse directed at Cheryl that sparked the #Cherylkermit hashtag.

Y'see, she was wearing this rather interesting dress...

Which had some drawing comparisons to this chap.

Which sparked a whole load of memes.

And it had it's benefits.

Yes Shane, yes it does...

And this is just incredible.

Oh and Mel B got a bit of stick too.

But some simply disagreed.
