Welcome to the Battle of the Chips: Celebrity Edition.

A video posted on social media by comedian Kevin Fredericks on Sunday has Twitter—and a number of celebrities—up in arms. In the clip, Fredericks is arguing with friends over the correct ranking of the chips in a Frito-Lay variety pack made up of Cool Ranch Doritos, Nacho Cheese Doritos, Cheetos, Fritos, BBQ Lays, and Original Lays. He then asked Twitter to decide for themselves.

Chris Evans was one of the first stars to take on the daunting task: “The correct answer is: 1. Cool ranch 2. Cheetos 3. Nacho cheese Doritos 4. Fritos 5. BBQ lays 6. Original lays. I will not be taking questions.”

His controversial answer sparked dozens of responses from celebrities like Octavia Spencer, Leslie Jones, and Monica Lewinsky.

“dude? seriously?????? Now you know cheetos is top dawg!!!!” wrote Spencer, prompting Evans to defend his choices.

“Look, this wasn’t easy for me,” wrote the Avengers star. “But the bottom line is, I can put in more work on a bag of cool ranch than any other chip. Let’s just acknowledge their dominance and move on. I really don’t want this to affect our friendship.”

Don Cheadle jumped in trying to keep the peace: “guys, take this offline, please. we don’t need to expose this kind of disfunction to the world … especially when bbq lays obviously s—- on both of your choices …”

Lewinksy was bold enough to suggest TWO flavors that weren’t even included in the original line-up, Fritos Chili and Funyuns.

We’re betting Chrissy Teigen could be the one to put a stop to the drama once and for all, but since she hasn’t chimed in yet, we will unveil the very official, undeniably accurate, PEOPLE staff-endorsed* ranking:

1. Cool Ranch Doritos
2. Nacho Cheese Doritos
3. Cheetos
4. Original Lay’s
5. Fritos
6. BBQ Lay’s

*Not all staffers agree with this ranking. There is still a great amount of internal debate happening.
