The Naija Gym claims to be the number one fitness blog in Nigeria. On Twitter, they do a commendable job of sharing health tips and motivational memes to keep its followers healthy. But last week, the blog made a major misstep by touching the dangerous third rail of nutrition: pizza. The only people who don’t love pizza are the lactose intolerant and they still dream about it five nights a week. So when Naija Gym Blog put out the following tweet, they understandably took hell for it.
Two slices of pizza are the equivalent to swallowing 3 spoons of warm oil. Do you feel like eating pizza now? pic.twitter.com/MXBl9lFIYv— Naija Gym Blog (@naijagym) February 16, 2017\n
After the tweet, the hate began to roll in from people of all races, creeds, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
Undeterred by all of the pro-pizza voices who bravely spoke out, Naija Gym Blog came back with a poll to see where people really stand. At press time, 90 percent of the 14,000 people who voted admitted they would eat pizza regardless of the amount of oil it contains.
