    Cole Sprouse Delivered The Most Savage Clapback To Casey Cott After He Was Teased About His Quarantine Beard

    You didn't have to come for him like THAT, damn.

    ICYMI, Cole Sprouse is sporting a new look these days.

    Sure, the ascot isn't really, although it helps him achieve what he calls "Chef Boyardee chic."

    But, the longer hair — and more importantly, the mustache and beard — are definitely new and noteworthy.

    In fact, Cole spoke all about his new facial hair on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon earlier this week.

    "I was growing it out," the 27-year-old said. "I was growing my hair out and my mustache for a role, but then quarantine hit and I figured, 'You know what? I'm going to be playing 17 for the next 80 years of my life, I might as well give myself a second to actually figure out if I can grow a mustache.'"

    Apparently, he and Dylan are in a "violent competition" to see who can get their "facial hair more robust." It's a whole thing.

    Anyway, Cole's pics hit the Twittersphere, and before long people were convinced that his new look resembled Empire actor Terrence Howard.

    They made jokes:

    They threw other actors into the mix:

    I will say that they can both pull off an ascot.

    Regardless, most people were a fan of his new look. But, his Riverdale costar Casey Cott couldn't help but take the opportunity for some light teasing. He called out Cole's "awful chin beard" during his appearance on Jimmy Fallon.

    @FallonTonight @colesprouse Why does he keep itching his awful chin beard during this interview?

    And Cole replied with a savage, award-winning clap back:

    @CaseyCott @FallonTonight That hairy chin said more words in that interview than you did in the last 4 seasons.

    AND I OOP!!

    For real, though.

    @colesprouse @CaseyCott @FallonTonight YOU DIDN'T HAVE TO GO THIS HARD

    Honestly, you can't help but respect a good, well-delivered burn.
