Twitter; the land of opinions and evermore opinionated people. There are a lot of opinions that are deemed popular with most but I’ve picked a few of them that I absolutely can’t stand. Before I get into these, I just want to disclose that none of these are meant to offend anyone, they’re just my opinions and this post is not meant to be taken so seriously. At the end of the day, everybody is entitled to their opinion and these so happen to be mine. So, let’s ruffle some feathers with my #unpopularopinions…
Zoella is HELLA annoying
I don’t like Zoella. There. I said it. I think that she is one of the most overrated YouTubers that has ever graced YouTube. I don’t get the hype around her and personally, I feel that there is a massive pressure on certain YouTubers to be like Zoella. Her whole ‘childish’ persona really grates on me and don’t even get me started on her merch. A £50 advent calendar filled with Poundland junk? Christ 🙄
Harry Potter is overrated
Don’t hate me! One thing I never really got into was Harry Potter. I don’t have the patience to sit and watch three hours of most movies tbh and this is just one of them. There’s nothing in particular about the movies and I don’t hate them but I just don’t get the hype.
Social media pages for pets
This I just don’t get at all. It is so cringe in my opinion. Like, you are pretending to be your pet? What?! Just post pictures of them on your own Insta?
Unicorns and Mermaids
Ugh, I never understood this trend. Why are people so obsessed with things that literally aren’t real? Are you over the age of 12? Yes? Then please, for the good of humanity, stop. At first, it seemed cute but now you can’t go anywhere without seeing a unicorn or mermaid printed on something. This trend needs to become as non-existent as the unicorn itself.
Pineapple belongs on pizza
Here’s a controversial one for you; pineapple on pizza. You either love or hate it. And I love it. The sweetness of the pineapple, the saltiness of the ham… it just works!
Chris Brown isn’t a monster
I have always been a fan of Chris Brown; I enjoy his music and I think he is incredibly talented, watching his documentary only confirmed this for me. But what I don’t get is the amount of hate this guy receives. Yes, I understand he assaulted Rihanna and it was terrible what she was subjected to but nobody speaks about the fact that she also assaulted him. He took all the blame for what happened that night and she never spoke of it. She hit him, spat at him and squeezed his genitals all whilst he was driving a vehicle. Domestic violence goes both ways and I believe in situations where you are being attacked, regardless of gender, you have the right to defend and protect yourself. I just don’t think he deserves the amount of hate he receives.
High end makeup is overrated
Okay, I love makeup. It’s one of my passions and one thing I get really hyped about is a drugstore-priced product with high-end qualities. I think there are hundreds of drugstore beauty products that dupe or sometimes even exceed high end products. Sometimes, you are just paying for the name.
I love Tana Mongeau
Everyone seems to hate on Tana but I won’t lie, I actually love her. I think she’s hilarious and one of the few YouTubers that don’t conform to some type of standard for her videos. She’s unapologetically real and I literally watch all of her videos. Tana is one of those people that I’d love to share a few cocktails with.
I don’t get the PLL hype
I tried to get into this, I really did, but the plot just bored the hell outta me. It was so long winded and the acting was shocking and if the acting in a show is bad, I lose interest quickly. Maybe I should have given it more than a couple of episodes but I was falling asleep by the fourth one.
“Obsessed with tea” in a Twitter bio
I recently tweeted about this because it annoyed me that much. Seriously, what kind of personality trait is that? ‘Ooh tea is life”, no please stop. Personally, I think it shows that you have nothing interesting to say about yourself
So, that’s it for my #unpopularopinions post. Feel free to comment below, regardless if you agree or not but please just remember that these aren’t meant to offend anybody and purely for entertainment.
