TheÂ foodÂ squabble came after Twitter user Robert James Russell (@robhollywood) tweeted out on Thursday an illustration he created that ranked nine different types of fries: standard cut french fries, sweet potato, steak fries, cheese fries, waffle fries, crinkle cut, tater tots, curly fries and poutine.
The nine options were placed in a combination of categories ranging from â€œGood,â€ â€œNeutral,â€ â€œEvil,â€ â€œLawfulâ€ or â€œChaotic.â€ â€œWell. I spent way too much time making this,â€ Russell tweeted. â€œPresenting: the French Fries Alignment.â€
Many Twitter users, however, took issue with Russellâ€™s arbitrary ranking.
â€œNot enough time clearly…â€ one person tweeted. Less than an hour after Russellâ€™s tweet, one Twitter user replied with a semi-altered illustration, swapping curly fries, originally listed as â€œChaotic Good,â€ with poutine, which was originally listed as a â€œChaotic Evil.â€
â€œI’m sorry, but with all due respect, I had to make a change,â€ the man tweeted. One person, apparently agreeing with the slight adjustment, replied â€œIt had to be done. Important work here.â€
â€œImagine thinking that cheese fries are good and poutine is evil. This is straight up heresy,â€ a Twitter user said. â€œIf poutine is evil, baby I don’t ever wanna be right,â€ wrote another. Poutine, which includes french fries and cheese curds topped with brown gravy, originated in Quebec. â€œThis a blatant attack on the entire nation of Canada,â€ one person tweeted. Another Twitter user said, â€œthis is a hate crime.â€
