The people sharing their unpopular opinions on Twitter are the most fearless among us
Brace yourself to either be outraged, entertained, or both.
Overrated pizza, Bounty chocolate appreciation and a disdain for tea are among the socially unpopular opinions being (bravely) shared on social media.
Twitter user Stephanie Boland set out to enquire about people’s non-political controversial views, and the results ranged from heartwarming to downright ridiculous.
What's the most unpopular benign opinion you hold? (i.e. not politically dodgy, just socially derided)— Stephanie Boland (@stephanieboland) August 3, 2017
Boland, head of digital at Prospect magazine, got the ball rolling with her divisive praise of coconut-rich Bounty chocolates.
Mine is that Bounty is the best Celebrations chocolate— Stephanie Boland (@stephanieboland) August 3, 2017
Whichever way your opinion might sit, it’s fair to say Boland’s question got people talking (and arguing) – she received 7,000 replies in less than 24 hours.
Here are some of the highlights.

Not all heroes wear capes.
I'm happy seeing public displays of affection, hipsters, people taking selfies, socks with sandals and I quite like instant coffee.— MꙬse Allain (@MooseAllain) August 3, 2017

The Hawaiian pizza was the OG swineapple, yet it always gets so much hate.

This should not be an unpopular opinion.

The next post is fair game considering much of the UK has experienced a less than satisfactory summer so far, this year.

While some of the opinions were highly contentious, Hussein Kesvani’s contribution was the bravest among them all.
What a courageous soul.
