The beef is real. Well, the beef between Wendy’s and Burger King is real. The jury is still out on what they’re serving, but Wendy’s threw a massive dis the way of Burger King when Burger King sub-tweeted Wendy’s 4 for $4 deal. It started here:
Then Burger King was like, nah, we’re better because we have FIVE items for four bucks:
Boom. But when an astute fan of fast food social media noticed the sub-tweet, he brought Wendy’s into the fray. The result – a sick burn.
This is reminiscent of when IHOP threw major shade at McDonald’s when they made the (desperate/genius) move to start serving breakfast all day. In that battle for the stomachs of busy people across the nation, Twitter would draw lines and take sides.
It seems like the A-Bomb thrown by Wendy’s finished the war quickly, and left Burger King char-broiled. Twitter was celebrating the comeback with its usual fervor:
It was such a perfect response I’m starting to sweat just by writing this. I want to do push-ups then dip fries into a Frosty. I want to put fries into my mouth and then do a push-up so the fries dip into the Frosty then unleash a guttural scream of glory.
