(WXYZ) — Everyone who eats Cheetos knows what it's like getting that orange dust all over your fingers, hands, and probably, clothes. But did you know there's a name for it?

According to Chester Cheetah himself, Cheetos dust is actually called....."cheetle."

Yes, this is actually a thing and not everyone is getting behind the name.

One Twitter user said Rich Hall used the term in his skits in the 1980s and his book "Sniglets."

Others weren't happy about the change.
