Twitter Users baffled After Googling ‘What Race is SpongeBob SquarePants’ as They Say ‘He’s Just a Sponge!’

Twitter users baffled after Googling ‘what race is SpongeBob SquarePants’ as they say ‘he’s just a sponge!’

Curious Twitter users have been left baffled after Googling the race of SpongeBob SquarePants.

A viral online article sparked the bizarre debate - leaving some cartoon fans frustrated as they fume: "He's just a sponge!"

The beloved Nickelodeon character became the centre of the bizarre row when writer Zachariah Ezer penned an essay online arguing about the race of characters in the show.

That's despite the fact the characters are underwater creatures ranging from the eponymous SpongeBob - a sea sponge - to Patrick the starfish and Squidward the octopus.

Ezer - who describes himself as a "cartoon philosopher" - wrote the lengthy piece on Medium, an "open platform" website where anyone can publish their views.

And his take on the iconic Nickelodeon animated series sent fans racing to their search engines to try to work out if the character has a human race.

One Twitter user wrote: “I never thought I’d be googling what race is Spongebob but here we are and I’m not disappointed.”

Another commented: “Google ‘what race is SpongeBob’ and get back to me.”

And, a third said: “Bro please go on google and search what race SpongeBob is.”

Other Twitter users were left confused as to why some were researching the race of the optimistic cartoon sponge.

One tweeted: “Spongebob’s race is sponge doe.”

Another asked: “What possessed someone to google this.”

And a third blasted: “Not Google giving SpongeBob a race. LMFAOO he’s a damn sea sponge.”

The Medium article claimed the characters of the show are Polynesian as Bikini Bottom is located under Bikini Atoll, according to the Encyclopedia SpongeBobia wiki.

Bikini Atoll is a coral reef located in the Marshall Islands.

Ezer claims SpongeBob is black, while Patrick is white and villain Plankton is from Latin America.

SpongeBob, who was born in July 1986, appeared in the show’s first episode "Help Wanted" back in 1999.
