What hill are you willing to die on? That’s a question we asked on our The Getup Crew Facebook page earlier this week and boy, did you answer. The topic was one we’d seen circulating on Twitter and thought it’d be a fun conversation piece on Tuesday morning. We had no idea how much it’d blow up with some fascinating “Hot Takes” from you all. Let’s first look at the takes from The Getup Crew themselves: Our producer Aaron says “Ariana Grande is better than Beyonce.” Leroy says “Godfather III isn’t as bad as everyone makes it seem.” Melissa says “Grease 2 is better than the original Grease.” Pebbles says “Friends was a direct rip off of Living Single” and “Justin Timberlake was not sorry for what he did to Janet Jackson” and Ramiro says “If you fall in love with someone you’ve never met in person, you’re stupid.”

So we asked the question on Facebook and we got hundreds of responses from our listeners. Cassandra said “Fathers can’t babysit their own kids, they are watching them.” Chichi said “That women shouldn’t be the only ones having to take care of the house hold (cleaning, cooking), kids & work, while the men simply go to work & come home.” Malik said “Money can buy happiness.” These are just some of the hundreds of responses we received and we have chosen some of our favorites and are posting them below. If you want to give us your “hill you’re willing to die on” you can go to our Facebook page now HERE.
