All the Times Fast Food Brands Clapped Back at Their Haters on Twitter

Oooh, burn!

In recent years, Twitter has become a major marketing tool for all brands, but it’s also become a great way for fast food joints to clap back at their haters (and their competition).

While Wendy’s quickly gained a reputation for having the sassiest Twitter on the block, especially because of their ongoing feud with McDonald’s over fresh versus frozen beef, other brands took notice and began dishing out their own snarky tweets in response to customer questions, celebrity news, or other brands’ promotions.

Read on for some of the best zingers from the fast food giants.

Taco Bell

While Taco Bell doesn’t typically engage in social media fights, the brand has had a few standout moments from their own Twitter account, including their correction of a grammar error in one of White Castle’s tweets to Chrissy Teigen. The taco joint also fired back at Old Spice when the deodorant company accused the fast food chain of false advertising.


Frozen pizza company DiGiorno also joined in on the fun, inciting a pizza war with Papa John’s. The frozen pizza chain mocked Papa John’s slogan “Better Ingredients. Better Pizza.” when they tweeted a declining graph meant to represent Papa John’s sales above a tweet that read, “Better Pizza. Better Sales.” The company also briefly changed their bio to the new slogan to spite Papa John’s.

Burger King

Aside from their epic promposal to Wendy’s on a marquee sign outside of one of their restaurants, Burger King has also thrown shade at the company on social media. First, the chain used social media to promote their spicy chicken nuggets, a menu item that Wendy’s had previously discontinued, leaving the Twitter-verse in an outrage. The brand found people’s old tweets asking where Wendy’s spicy nuggets went and used them as advertising for their own spicy nugget addition to their menu.

Then, Burger King promoted a 5 for $ 4 deal just days after Wendy’s announced their 4 for $ 4 deal. Even though they didn’t mention the square-burger chain in their tweet directly, Twitter users were quick to notice the shade in their tweet which read, “Because 5 is better than 4.”

However, Wendy’s never goes down without a fight, so when a Twitter user, who has since switched their account to private, asked what Wendy’s had in response to the deal, they responded with two simple words: “edible food.”

Of course, Wendy’s has the longest history of roasting people on Twitter, including their iconic tweet suggesting that asking to be directed to the nearest McDonald’s is essentially the same as asking to be directed to a garbage can.

The company also recently called out pro-golfer Tiger Woods when he flubbed his first hole at the 2018 U.S. Open, scoring an unimpressive triple bogey. “Tiger, next time you’re going to get a triple…” the brand tweeted beneath a photo of their triple cheeseburger.

Samantha Bee Gets Candid About Dealing With Twitter Haters Post-Election

It’s no secret Samantha Bee isn’t a fan of Donald Trump. The “Full Frontal” host often calls out the president and his administration on her show, which no doubt elicits some passionate responses on social media. 

In a new interview with Vulture, the late night host got candid about dealing with social media haters, especially following Trump’s election. 

Bee admitted she “very, very seldom” looks at her mentions these days, noting “it’s not healthy to do that.” 

The comedian said she saw a drastic difference in the types of comments she was receiving post-election versus before. 

“To the moment that they called the election, the moment, my mentions changed completely. There was a shift — it’s B.C. and A.D.,” she said. “In the moment, it was just a tsunami of hatred from all of these different people. It was crazy. It was very affecting. It surprised me. Like at 10 p.m. it happened, and it was just a big shift.” 

As we’ve come to learn, the internet can be an extremely mean place, especially for someone, like Bee, who’s in the public eye. 

 “You know, people say the worst things,” Bee said, noting that among the hateful tweets was one that included a photo of her hanging from a tree. “You just get the worst stuff humanly possible. The tone got more violent. The tone got more aggressive. But also the volume increased exponentially.” 

At one point, it got so bad, Bee revealed her assistant took her password away from her. The Canadian-American said she “had to be treated like a toddler for two weeks.” Now, she manages her account herself again and tries not to look at her comments too much. 

“It’s sad, really, because people are trying to communicate with you who have something to say, and the vast majority are probably lovely people who just want to say hi,” she said. “I really miss that direct connection. But you really have to protect yourself, mentally.” 

Bee previously spoke about dealing with Trump trolls online in an interview with Lena Dunham published by The Hollywood Reporter earlier this week. 

I could not believe what I was seeing in my mentions,” she told Dunham. “I could not believe it. And the days following the election were very hard. There were a million reasons why it was difficult, and it’s been really difficult ever since.”

This weekend, Bee will host “Not The White House Correspondents’ Dinner,” a counter event to the actual White House Correspondents’ Dinner. Bee’s event will take place the same day as the White House gala in Washington, D.C., with celebrities like Rachel Bloom and Keegan-Michael Key expected to be in attendance.
