In this brief guide, we will look at 99 unpopular opinions.
Unpopular opinions are opinions that people have that go against the commonly held beliefs of their community, and those that they will likely get a lot of heat for.
However, some people also express divisive and racist or sexist comments under the guise of unpopular opinions, so that is something to look out for.
Some of the best Unpopular opinions come from twitter or reddit, which are two communities where people seem to be most outspoken, although reddit may have a slight edge due to the presence of more anonymity there.
On YouTube you will also find many videos and comments of unpopular opinions. In fact, you can check ”The Most Liked Comment on YouTube” to get an idea.
Unpopular opinions can also be used as a sort of defence mechanism against any insecurities someone has or any feelings of low self-esteem they are suffering from and often they may be used as a support to make the person feel better.
Here are 99 unpopular opinions you might agree or disagree with:
Ketchup should be fridge-cold.
Soda fountain Coke tastes different than a can poured over ice.
intoxicating drink out of a can tastes weird.
Strawberries get more credit than they deserve.
Vegetables are better than dessert.
Pickle juice is delicious, nutritious, and a treat for your mouth and body.
Cake is not that good.
Room-temperature butter is the truth.
I can’t stand pizza with tomato sauce (I always ask for it without).
I don’t like Nutella.
Brunch is not bad, but it is dramatically overrated.
Nuts in chocolate is really, really, wrong.
Rare steak sucks.
Kendrick Lamar is an excellent rapper but his voice is annoying
Cardi is only popular because of her looks
I have no idea why 69 and lil pump are popular
J. Cole- photograph is highly underrated
Views is Drake’s best album
Nicki Minaj can go in on a beat when she tries
Nas should be considered in the goat conversation
Sza can’t sing. She’s an amazing artist and musical genius for her lyrics, content, production, and general imma do me attitude, but her voice is just okay at best. Unique if you wanna be nice.
Another thing, Jaden is actually a great rapper and an overall artist but people hate on him just cuz he’s Will’s son.
Taylor Swift doesn’t have any award-worthy albums
The new generation gives too much emphasis on music/beats and not enough on lyrics. That’s why we have so many mumble rappers
The obsession people have with Princess Diana is weird.
Yes, she is beautiful and incredibly influential for her time, but you can’t say stuff about her without people acting as if she skipped rope with them at recess as children. People just need to stop licking the ground she walked on (and frankly, I feel like that needs to be said about any celebrity nowadays.)
Jimmy Kimmel is bad
SNL is bad
AITA is bad
Taking down statues is bad
Last of Us 2 is bad
KPOP/KPOP fans are bad
Joker was overrated
Mandalorian is overrated
Fireworks are bad
Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and all the other social media sites are destroying communication. Everyone needs to post something to these sites, even if it’s just about eating a piece of toast. No one talks to people in person anymore, and it will ruin us.
The smartphone is the most dangerous device you’ve ever touched.
People pay too much attention to other people’s business
People are snoopy
People are too gullible
People adhere to mob mentality
People are cheap and want too much for too little money
The upper female body being sexualized is not a social construct. People won’t stop longing after you just because it’s legal to show them in public.
Doxxing minors is bad
Black owned trend is racist
Religion shouldn’t exist.
God could have just killed the devil and said forget hell. and moved on swiftly.
If our life is a mess we shouldn’t have to accept it just because God is “bored”, and “trying to see something”, or because our blessings come on his time.
I feel like every religion has the same God but they don’t know how to pronounce its name.
Fahrenheit is better than Celsius
Marriage is bad/bad for men
There is a direct correlation between privilege and protest.
I think people have too much belief in “freedom”.
I believe the rise of modern political radicalism in Western nations is almost entirely the result of easy communications via social media and the Internet combined with an unprecedented period of peace and prosperity for these countries.
Many people are often openly and dramatically hypocritical when they call themselves ‘animal lovers’.
Many people claim that they love animals, while openly participating and encouraging industries that are unspeakably cruel to them. They think that because they own a pet they like, enjoy watching cat videos and watch birds from time to time it means they are an animal lover.
So many people are so desperate for love that they forget to take the time to love and learn themselves.
If the goal of the relationship isn’t to eventually get married & be committed forever, then what’s the point? I don’t want it
Screaming and yelling at your partner all the time isn’t healthy. Stop glorifying arguing all the time! And people need to stop telling couples that don’t argue that they have a problem.
What works in one relationship, won’t work for all. Learning new things with your partner is an important shared experience.
Don’t tell people when you and your significant other are fighting you forget everyone else will hold it against them
A lot of ppl think it’s cool to be around 24/7 but that’s unhealthy. Ppl need their space

Unpopular Opinions Reddit
Here are some of the best Unpopular opinions from Reddit, specifically the unpopular opinions subreddit:
I prefer to celebrate my birthday alone rather than with other people
Yes, celebrating your birthday with other people/family is a good thing and you must appreciate the people in your life. But, people have a habit of making the birthday about themselves/the party and honestly, it’s just healthy to have a day all to yourself without others. Your birthday is your day after all.
Raw carrots are way better than cooked carrots
The best way to have carrots is always having them cut up into sticks and eating them cold. Cooked carrots don’t have that same nice crunchiness as raw carrots and they don’t even taste as good. Also, cutting carrots into thin circles is an awful way to eat them.
Water DOES have a taste.
Water has a taste. The reason why people say “it hAS nO tASTe” is because the taste of water is completely unique.
Water can’t taste like anything else because the taste is fully original and can only be tasted by drinking water.
The argument that water is tasteless is a complete borderline ignorant.
People with no personality are better than people whose entire existence is to talk about one single topic.
Video games are getting worse, and “better graphics” aren’t helping.
Most people don’t actually care about wealth inequality, what they really care about is their own lack of wealth
The term “trauma” is seriously overused to the point where everything is trauma
I have noticed a trend in the past few years that makes it seem like everything is trauma. Now I would like to say that I don’t know what a person is going through and I don’t know their life. They could very well have gone through something horrible and it messed them up. I am not trying to be an expert on what is and isn’t trauma
Coffee tastes better with salt than it does with sugar
Coffee tastes better with salt than it does with sugar, both is good too if I’m feeling it but salt always improves it immensely. If I’m really in the mood, salted butter.
The crust of a pizza tastes amazing
There are many people who talk about how the crust of a pizza tastes disgusting. Whenever I eat pizza with other people, they rarely finish the crust. However, I feel that the crust tastes as good as the toppings, if not better
If you’re upset about the Koch brothers’ political influence but scoff at criticism of George Soros, or the other way around, you are a massive hypocrite.
Either using your money and influence to try and influence the global political process is morally acceptable behavior or it is not. You can’t have it both ways.
Memes have peaked in 2018.
2014 – 2018 was the golden age of internet entertainment and memes. Since the adpocalypse, there haven’t been any good memes, and youtubers produce lazy content in order to stay monetized.
French fries with just salt & pepper are the best.
If Will Smith had cheated on Jada the internet would crucify him, but since it was the other way around people are making fun of him.
Amazon could really use a “filter out Chinese sellers” option
Sleeping in your car should be completely legal and never looked down upon.
This next unpopular opinion on Reddit is considered to be the top unpopular opinion of all time, and with good reason, check it out:
Eating cereal with water is better than with milk
I am a true believer that cereal with water is better. The taste of milk conflicts with the taste of the cereal, whereas water does not. While still getting the same texture, water does not ruin the taste of cereal. My friends crucified me when I told them this…so for this reason I am coming here in search of others who share my beliefs of water being better than milk.
It doesn’t matter how much you like his music, Tekashi 69 slept with a 13 year old and by listening to his music you are lining the pockets of an abuser.
News should be a dry recitation of facts. If it isn’t, then it’s an opinion intended to stir your emotions into clouding your judgement
If stealthing (non-consensual removal of birth control) is illegal, so should lying about being on birth control
