Kaley Cuoco has recently shared a sweet picture of herself kissing boyfriend Karl Cook on social media. However, the said photo has sparked several reactions from fans who claimed that the image may contain a subtle message.

The “Big Bang Theory” star uploaded the said picture on Instagram on Thursday. In the picture, Cuoco and beau Cook were photographed while in the middle of a sweet kiss, People magazine reported. Cook was wearing a pair of sunglasses and a black coat with a red collar over a white shirt. On the other hand, the actress wore a violet and white-speckled shirt and a wide brimmed hat. Cuoco captioned the image, “Finally.”

The couple first sparked dating news earlier this year. The two were spotted attending the BNP Paribas Open together in March. Cuoco has also shared several pictures of herself together with Cook on social media. She has even gushed over her equestrian boyfriend during a previous interview and described him as “special.”

However, some of Cuoco’s Instagram followers have shared mixed reactions over the kissing photo. A few of the Hollywood star’s Instagram fans posted positive messages. Although, some were also confused if the actress was somehow throwing shade at another person given the position of her middle finger. In the Instagram picture, Cuoco’s left hand held the hat’s brim down to partly cover her and Cook’s face while her middle finger was up against the side of the hat.


Instagram user kelanne2 commented if the actress was “giving someone the finger.” Although some of Cuoco’s Instagram fans speculated that the actress’ middle finger pose may be meant for her former husband Ryan Sweeting, as well as a way to mark the end of her divorce. Instagram user martieandjames wrote, “Lol I love this pic... The hat with the subtle message. Is she flipping him off one last time? ... Is she just holding her hat down? ….”

Cuoco has yet to comment on the fans’ speculations.
