The latest food crime has been committed.
A viral Twitter post of a questionable method of cutting an avocado has South Africans enranged and confused about why this food crime was committed.
Shared by BagelTechie on 18 August 2021, the image depicts an avocado cut vertically in the middle with the question: “If you’re only having half an avo. Do you eat the top half or the bottom half first?”.

The reaction from the local Twitterverse is in agreement that this is not the way to cut the beloved avocado. While some decided to play Devil’s ‘avocado’, others expressed anger in a range of hilarious gifs and responses that have left us in stitches.
😳 This is the equivalent of a beheading in the avocado world.
