If you’re the sort of masochist who checks Twitter regularly, you’re likely to have seen somebody’s “unpopular opinion” (more so than usual). Users are offering their two cents in threads on everything from culture and music to food and sport. The aim is to shock and appall the internet with your controversial opinions (again, more so than usual). No sacred cows are left untouched. Seriously, there are people out there who think Beyoncé and pizza are overrated.
And as expected, with such a jarring selection of opinions, some downright insane, responses have been quite heated. With that in mind, we’ve compiled the best of Twitter’s unpopular opinions. Check them out below.
BTS is highly overrated

Beyonce is overrated…im out pic.twitter.com/Shro0jbKGA

Drake is overrated. No one listens to Rihanna for vocals. Stop trying to make Tinasha happen, she’s not gonna happen.

Kendrick Lamar is an excellent rapper but his voice is annoying
— Jevan Reed (@Polverine33) May 31, 2018
Sza can’t sing. She’s an amazing artist and musical genius for her lyrics, content, production and general imma do me attitude, but her voice is just okay at best. Unique if you wanna be nice.

If you need someone else to write your songs you’re not an artist.

Mozart actually didn’t write all his songs. His father wrote some for him and gave his son credit to solidify his sons child prodigy standing

Black writers arent appreciated enough

The term creatives is a lazy catch all. Artist is sufficient. Pick a medium and be creative
— Clever Pop Culture Pun (@AnwarisBwameeks) May 28, 2018
someone's art should not just be a transcription of their nervous breakdown in visuals or prose.
— towns (@gnarlymagical) May 28, 2018
Magicians are artists too. The art is doing things we shouldn't be able to. Hours and Hours perfecting the same little thing for one trick. It sounds rediculous but all the time ive spent practicing and i still dont regret a second.

There's a financial barrier to entry for creatives hoping to enter the entertainment industry.

Mozzarella sticks are better than chicken nuggets

Doritos are DISGUSTING🤢🤮 pic.twitter.com/O64GRlXujg

Macarons are art! They can't be mass produced like oreos with chemicals that have no nutritional value whatsoever. Lmao macarons are 👌🏽 pic.twitter.com/3z7PTc7Z9e

Tomatoes & Lettuce are the unnecessary backtracking fetch quest of the burger world.

Hot Cheetos are the worst chips to ever touch the shelves

argentina is thrash with or without messi
— TIMMY●I (@Tianty_I) June 1, 2018
Van Persie’s header was overrated
— Alex McGovern (@AlexMcGovern11) June 1, 2018
Despite the fact he's uncapped, Trent Alexander-Arnold is probably the 5th or 6th best right-back heading to the World Cup.
Kimmich, Carvajal, Walker, Vrsaljko better, then maybe Ricardo Pereira or Meunier. That’s it.
— Sam Tighe (@stighefootball) June 1, 2018
It’s okay to like Messi and Ronaldo.
— Nick Akerman (@Nakerman) June 1, 2018
Nigeria kit is not that good🙃
— Милан Митровић🗿 (@milan_bro) June 1, 2018
Constantly fighting, breaking up, and getting back together is not “true love finding its way back”. Y’all look like some clowns https://t.co/ODhcrauePq

Cheating is NOT part of the ups & downs of a relationship & staying with someone after they’ve cheated is NOT ‘holding them down’ and being a ‘RideOrDie’
— coldgold (@_coldgold) May 28, 2018
Dont get in a relationship if u dont have a job and a car
— SlIⓂ️E🧞♂️ (@JaylenDick16) June 2, 2018
It’s okay to date inside the family it keeps you guys closer as a unit.
— FlowerBoy (@Ralphieexx) May 29, 2018
If you delete messages or intentionally don’t save them because you don’t want your significant other to see, it’s cheating .
— drose (@Dest001) May 29, 2018
Friends don’t have the right to be mad when someone starts spending more time with their s/o more than them. If they were your friend they’d support the relationship and root for you. It’s only wrong if it’s total abandonment. pic.twitter.com/o7OLJkBgSt
