The Ezekiel Moment In The Walking Dead Season 11 Episode 12 That Has Fans So Divided

The following article contains minor spoilers for "The Walking Dead" Season 11, Episode 12, "The Lucky Ones."

There have been numerous moments on "The Walking Dead" that have divided fans. Some believe Season 2's decision to stay predominantly on Hershel's (Scott Wilson) farm was a breath of fresh air, while others think it devolved into lazy storytelling. Some fans like how Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) has been rehabilitated on the show. Still, there are those who believe his actions are irredeemable. 

Now, the zombie series has waded into the most controversial waters of them all. The show has clearly taken a firm stance on an issue that has divided families, pitting siblings against one another. When it comes to "The Walking Dead," it's obvious there are plenty of people behind the scenes who adamantly believe that pineapple has no place on pizza.

On March 13's episode, titled "The Lucky Ones," Ezekiel (Khary Payton) claims, "Pineapple on pizza makes no sense" before going into surgery. Naturally, it's taken the internet by storm, with lines in the sand being drawn again as people debate this question that seemingly has no answer.

What's your stance on pineapple on pizza?

What is it about sticking a few slices of pineapple on pizza with ham on it that gets people so riled up? Those in favor of the concoction will tell you that they enjoy the combination of sweet and salty. Those against it will point out that fruit has no place on pizza. It's not just Ezekiel who falls into the latter category. Entertainment Weekly reached out for an official comment from "The Walking Dead" showrunner Angela Kang about her stance on the issue, and she said, "I didn't write that line, but I was like, I thoroughly agree. It's an abomination. Why mix these two things? I don't understand it. So wrong."

On social media, people have chimed in with their thoughts. When the official "The Walking Dead" Twitter account posted a gif of Ezekiel's statement, many people rushed to pineapple's defense, such as @KenFromChicago writing, "#PineapplePizza, two great things that go great together." They weren't alone in their opinion, as @Smeary also stated, "No! Pineapple is the best on pizza!"

Of course, for every positive review for pineapple on pizza, there were just as many negative ones. It appears this debate is destined to go on forever.
