Dwayne Johnson Puts An End To The Pineapple On Pizza Debate

Dwayne Johnson Puts An End To The Pineapple On Pizza Debate

Do you really want to argue with The Rock?

There's an age-old debate whether pineapple is an acceptable topping for pizzas or not - many people are all for it, others think it should be classed as an abomination to the human race.

Now the whole thing has really come to a head, however, as Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has weighed in on the argument - yes, he's taken to Instagram to pick a side, and it turns out... drum roll... he actually has his pizza with pineapple.

On Instagram he posted: "As for my pizza toppings - keep in mind, I'm the guy who likes to put tequila and brown sugar in my oatmeal, so pineapple on pizza is MY JAM - with ham."

Along with a photo of himself alongside the controversial pizza topping, he commented: "Got the glorious text from my strength & conditioning coach @daverienzi that read 'DJ, need a mid week carb up for your big scenes tomorrow. Eat a pizza and send me your pics in the morning' to which I responded - Watch. This."

He added: "I love these midweek pizza carb ups like a drunk loves free peanuts."

To be fair, super-buff Dwayne was simply discussing his mid-week carb-loading - by now, we should all be well aware that he knows exactly what he's doing.

This is a contentious issue and The Rock's opinion will only serve to fan the flames, but with the Fast and Furious actor giving his two cents on the matter, it seems some people think this may bring an end to the debate.

One person commented: "The rock throws pineapple on his pizza the debate is over don't @ me."

Another said: "Hey everybody @TheRock is officially a pineapple pizza guy so this debate is now officially over. You've got something to say, take it up with him. Good luck."

A third tweeted: "@TheRock Loves pineapple on his pizza. His exact words were "pineapple on pizza is MY JAM". Everyones argument against this is now invalid."

Well, I suppose you wouldn't want to take on The Rock in an argument, would you?

But the argument goes even further than Hollywood celebrities - even world leaders have waded into it.


Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tweeted: "I have a pineapple. I have a pizza. And I stand behind this delicious Southwestern Ontario creation. #TeamPineapple @Canada."

And Iceland's President, Guðni Th. Jóhannesson, had to explain to his public that it was beyond his jurisdiction to band the topping back in 2017, commenting: "I do not have the power to make laws which forbid people to put pineapples on their pizza. I am glad I do not hold such power."

However, he did admit that he 'went a step too far' by entering the debate, adding: "That's where the influence of this office sort of, yeah, got the better of me."

Well, whatever you want on your slice, how you have your pizza is your choice. But still, you'd probably prefer to stay on The Rock's good side.
