Iceland's President Guoni Th Johannesson made quite a wave earlier this week when he said he would ban pineapples on pizza if he could.
The President was taking questions from students at a school when one asked how he felt about the topping. He replied that if he had the authority to ban pineapple pizza, he would.
The internet went insane, because of course it did.

Due to the public outcry (no, really), Johannesson was forced to release a media statement clarifying that, no, in fact, he does not actually have the authority to ban a pizza topping.
So let's settle this once and for all. PINEAPPLE PIZZA OR NAH?
