The theme for the 2019 Met Gala is “Camp: Notes on Fashion,” which means that everyone’s looks are expected to be very grandiose and overly exaggerated … but apparently, Frank Ocean either didn’t get the memo or he didn’t give a damn about a theme.

While (mostly) everyone else spent the night trying to outdo each other with their over-the-top costumes … Frank Ocean arrived on the red carpet of the annual fashion event at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art Monday (May 6) wearing an incredibly boring outfit—a white shirt, a black Prada jacket and black pants cropped to show off big clunky black boots.
In other words, the renown singer/songwriter looked like top flight security, rather than an A-List celebrity at a major industry event.

Fans who expected Ocean to show whole entire a-s-s in some form or another took to Twitter to express their disappointment in his apparent lack of creativity.

Not everyone on Twitter was against Frank’s Met Gala look though. Some even suggested everyone calm down on the backlash and just let him be great or else the recluse singer may back into hiding for another several years
“Please don’t come for frank ocean he might go into hiding for another four years we just found him,” one fan tweeted.
“Frank Ocean is a f**king king and no one can change my mind,” tweeted another.
