People Are Intensely Debating The Merits Of Pineapple Pizza After This Viral Tweet

"Pineapple is the best pizza topping" vs. "Pineapple stole my job, spit in my mom's face, burned my house."

Posted on

Miranda told BuzzFeed News he wanted to provoke "pineapple on pizza haters," so on Saturday evening, he urged people to retweet these two photos of a pizza slice heavily layered with pineapple cubes. And people came through with the RTs — there are over 112,000 currently.

wuss poppin twitter, retweet to ruin a pineapple on pizza haters timeline

Miranda admitted that pineapple isn't even "the best pizza ingredient" to him, although he does like it a lot. He just wanted to ruffle some feathers.

(He also confirmed that he diced and topped the pineapple on the pizza slice himself).

All through the weekend, pineapple lovers used Miranda's tweet to proudly pronounce their love for the topping.

At the same time, pineapple haters around the world denounced his photos. In fact, they were sickened by them.

"WTF I'm going to puke," someone wrote in Dutch.

"Worst photo you'll see today," someone else wrote in Portuguese.

But most people — pineapple enthusiasts included — really took issue with the amount of pineapple in the photos. They thought it really hurt the cause.
