‘Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ Is Here & Twitter Fucking Hates The Cursed Pear Trees

It’s Animal Crossing: New Horizons release day and the internet is collectively losing their mind over the game we’ve all been waiting for.

Naturally, the online commentary has been flowing all day, but not about actual gameplay or criticism. Do you know what everyone is talking about? FRUIT.

In particular, PEARS.


The devil’s fruit.

If you’re unfamiliar with the game, your island is given a “native” fruit. There are five options: cherries, apples, peaches, pears, and oranges. They’re all worth the same amount of money, but in the Animal Crossing fandom, there is a serious hierarchy of fruits and fans take it really fucking seriously.

Some people hate the horrible fruit so much that they actually reset the whole game to avoid getting stuck with pears.

No seriously, a significant amount of people reset the whole damn game.

Unless of course, you’re this guy, who really fucking hates oranges.

Obviously, cherries and peaches are the top-tier fruits, with apples falling not too far behind. But pears are just the fucking worst. And Twitter isn’t afraid to make it known.

Honestly, it’s not even worth buying the game if you get stuck with the god forsaken pear tree.

This is truly the cursed fruit and I will not have a bar of it.
