Why can't we all just let this debate go?!

The dust has only just cleared from the last time the internet clashed over pineapple on pizza - and as you probably know, there were many casualties.

But at last, whether you enjoy the topping as a delicious sweet kick to your 'za or not, we've been able to put our differences aside; and focus on the greater issues of the world.

Until now.

The President of Iceland, Guðni Th. Jóhannesson, has apparently been eager to get into some major discourse. Speaking at a local school in Akuyeri, Jóhannesson took questions from the students - one of which quizzed his stance on the Great Pineapple Controversy.

Jóhannesson not only said he wasn't a fan; but that if he had the power to pass laws, would impose an Iceland-wide ban on the delicious topping option like some kind of f*cking demagogue.

Twitter has rightfully decided that the President of Iceland is now cancelled.


Except for those who agree with his vicious statement.


Even Iceland ~the shop~ is weighing in.


And so once again, the war is back on.

In the wake of Iceland's first political controversy in a good long while, Jóhannesson has been forced to take to Facebook to clarify his position; admitting amongst other things he is "glad that [he does] not hold such power" to implement a pineapple on pizza ban, and recommending people try seafood on pizza. BIG NAH.


All we know is, regardless of your position on the subject, we're all feeling a bit sweet n' salty this morning.
