"Slut drop" is a common yet somewhat offensive term for a dance move that's been immortalized by artists like Britney Spears, Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj in music videos. It's not typically deployed by White guys, but most agree John Barrowman totally won the moment when he unexpectedly "dropped it like it was hot."
And considering this was Barrowman's outfit one year at Comic Con...
The internet definitely reacted.

Alright, most dudes would get roasted for attempting to "slut drop" on national television like that.
But as usual, John Barrowman is totally owning the moment and enjoying himself. At this rate, he could teach Cardi B a few saucy moves.
