Social media users came up with a tirade of unpopular opinions in response to the thread. From movies to shows to food, they covered all bases.

Social media users came up with a tirade of unpopular opinions in response to the thread. From movies to shows to food, they covered all bases.

A recent Twitter thread has kickstarted a string of unpopular opinions and turns out, users have a lot that falls under its ambit, or at least is controversial, from shows to food to politics.

Unpopular opinions have become quite the thing recently on social media. Taking a stand against popular point-of-views have thrown open conversations among strangers that range from food to music to shows to just about everything. So, whether you find Coldplay overrated or Idli in itself bland to eat on its own, there’s a place for you to keep it out in the open. Or is there? As with opinions, countering comments are aplenty and social media has been having a gala time carrying on the trend. A recent Twitter thread has kickstarted a similar such string of unpopular opinions and turns out, users have a lot that falls under its ambit, or at least is controversial.

A Twitter user @itsdhruvism came up with the thread. Posting the very popular scene grab from the wildly popular sitcom Friends, he urged users to drop in their unpopular opinions.

The first one after it was from a user who called the show Friends overrated. The user’s opinion was however countered by a Friends fan again, who called out the user’s “poor sense of humor” due to which the person can’t get jokes. Burn right there!

The next one was on former Indian skipper MS Dhoni. Dhoni fans certainly needed all of their cricket armour to brave this one. The user wrote, “Dhoni did nothing after 2011 world cup besides making rohit sharma an opener and after 2014 he even forgot to hold bat properly.”Oohh!

Someone posted statistics of the Ranchi-born cricketer below that.

We inched towards some emotional (read love and food) opinions after this.

Desi weddings are overrated? One user definitely thinks so.

One user, however came up with a practical comment to negate the opinion and we do agree about it.

Another one in line was Paani-puri as one user called it overrated.

The Aamir Khan-Salman Khan comedy Andaz Apna Apna was next.

In between all the movies and food criticism, one user came up with her love for belted watches.

A few of the recurring unpopular opinions were pani-puri and chaat in general. And several of the fun opinions then came in torrents. From calling Maggi and biryani overrated to calling aloo bhujia overrated, the opinions were wide and varied. Then it was the wildly popular HBO fanatsy show Game of Thrones. The user called the show Hollywood’s Chandrakanta. (We might not believe it, but we sure are ready to reimagine it!)

The thread in its entirety was a hilarious one, but some of the best ones had to be the ones about food. While one said ‘there should be no medu vada in any of the south indian restaurants’, another said they loved Karela(bitter gourd) and chili. That’s a red hot unpopular opinion right there.

The trend has picked up not only on Twitter, but on Facebook too. Often users have even started posting random unpopular opinions anywhere where this particular snap from Friends is seen, resulting in hilarious replies between random users.
