Joe Lycett confuses some Sunday Brunch viewers
Joe’s choice of headgear immediately prompted strong reactions on social media.
Viewers made their feelings clear on and to the Sunday Brunch Instagram and Twitter accounts.
Some admitted to being perplexed as to why Joe would wear the visor, despite nearly 18 months of a global pandemic.
Others, clearly irritated by Joe’s shield, accused him of ‘attention-seeking’ and hurled abuse in his direction.
How viewers reacted
“I’m very confused about the visor?” one person wrote on Twitter.
“Everyone is socially distanced, is this making a point?”
Another person pondered: “What’s with the visor? Just curious…”
One clearly rattled observer saw the open-ended, unexplained stance with the visor as an opportunity to take a dig at Joe’s flamboyant act.
“Because he likes to be centre of attention as always,” they replied to another baffled Insta user.
And someone else on Twitter echoed that thought: “Why the visor? It literally makes no sense. Unless you’re an attention seeker.”

“Leave him the heck alone,” one supporter insisted.
