It Turns Out That Coleslaw Is A Food That People Have Very Strong Feelings About

As one of the world's largest social media platforms, Twitter has seen it's share of polarizing debates, but the latest opinion rivalry is one no one could have predicted.


From politics to religion to people's favorite sports teams, Twitter has been ground zero for countless heated disputes.

But recently a new conflict has been brewing, and we might not make it out of this one alive.

Lines are being drawn, sides are being taken, and as the divide grows and tensions continue to rise things are threatening to spill out into an all out blood feud over a topic that nobody saw coming -- coleslaw.

Ok, maybe things aren't that bad, but considering this coleslaw is we are talking about people do seem a lot more passionate about it than one might have expected.

The most visible recent example began with MSNBC host Ari Melber, who came down decidedly in the "no" column when it comes to the subject of coleslaw:

Food debates are nothing new. While some people may swear by mayonnaise, others consider it "the Devil's pudding."

For some, cilantro adds a delightful citrus flavoring to almost anything, but for others, it's a despicable weed that tastes like grass and soap.

And of course there's the age old debate between honest, hardworking, decent human beings and those who put pineapple on pizza.

But who knew that convictions were just as strong when it came to coleslaw? The question is, how deep does this go?

The thread that followed Melber's condemnation illustrated just how deep the divide seems to be.



And just like that the coleslaw wars were on. Melber certainly doesn't stand alone in his low opinion of the slaw.

A simple Twitter search reveals Twitter's dark underground of anti-slaw sentiment.






Though slaw-supporters seem to roll pretty deep as well.






But a closer look suggests the pro-slaw community may not be as united as they look -- disputes about ingredients and the "proper" way to eat it seem ready to divide them from within.








As in any war, there are always those trying to broker peace, but who knows if it's enough to bring an end to these bitter hostilities.

Game of Thrones fans are a passionate lot.

For eight seasons they wrung their hands and argued back and forth about who would sit on the iron throne and rule the seven kingdoms in the end.

But it turns out, the show may have told us right from the beginning.

Yes, if you've been on the internet, you know that everybody, even Elizabeth Warren and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hates the 8th and final season of Game Of Thrones.

But a couple of Reddit posters are trying to ameliorate the vitriol flying at the end of the show by fleshing out a fan theory-which actually, totally makes sense.

Alright ladies and gentlemen, time for a pop quiz.

The first question is, what do the lyrics...

"And I am telling you..."
"Once there was a way to get back homeward"
"To a deluxe apartment in the sky"

...all have in common?

If you guessed Jennifer Hudson slaying them, you'd be correct!

Bye Felicia!

Best friends for life! That's the motto. Friends before lovers because lovers come and go. The list of friendship mantras is endless. So you would think that means everyone sees their relationships with the people they call their closest, not blood related, chosen family will be endless. No expirations date. Sadly this is not always the case. Sometimes people do just come and go in your life, actually the older you get you realize most people come and go and ninety percent of the time, the going is the best thing that happens. It's not the happiest fact but it is often the sanest. Life is long, you can have many besties.

Redditor u/HairyFaithlessness was interested in hearing some the best reasons behind... Why don't you talk to your once "best friend" anymore? Pay attention for yourself in these. Red flags are afoot.

A Jeopardy! contestant underestimated host Alex Trebek's intelligence when he clarified a gambling phrase in layman's terms.

James Holzhauer is a Las Vegas sports gambler, which is something not that different from playing the popular TV trivia game show.

He wagered "two dimes" and the brief silence that followed prompted Holzhauer to explain what he meant in case the omniscient host was in the dark.
