Pharrell Williams hat was called out by Arby's -- and just about everyone else who was active on social media while watching the Grammy's last night. Pharrell gains loads of attention for his brown hat which was quite a statement -- if you can even call it that. On Jan. 26, Yahoo! posted a bunch of funny tweets directed at Pharrell (specifically his hat) -- and don't worry, Pharrell's hat already has its own Twitter account.

It's unclear why Pharrell decided to wear the hat -- but it got him a lot of attention and that's usually not a bad thing. Sure, people thought it was ridiculous -- but it was just a hat.

Pharrell Williams hat does resemble the Arby's hat -- and the fast food chain picked up on it right away. "Hey @Pharrell, can we have our hat back? #GRAMMYs," Arby's tweeted from their official Twitter account. Shortly after, Pharrell made a joke out of it and responded, "Y'all tryna start a roast beef?" Totally funny right?

Other Pharrell hat comparisons included "Smokey the Bear" and "mounties." What did you think of Pharrell's hat? Did you wonder why he chose to wear it? It many ways it was funny -- not controversial in any way -- but will it be something that people talk about for years to come? Probably not.

Pharrell Williams' hat -- an Arby's knockoff or not -- wasn't even the weirdest thing at the Grammy's (hello Daft Punk robots), but it was easily one of the most discussed things on social media.
