Wendy’s went after McDonald’s on Twitter for announcing they were just making the switch from frozen to fresh beef on Mar. 30. See the sassy tweets here!
Wendy’s threw shade McDonald’s way on Mar. 30. Mickey D’s had just announced it would be making the switch from frozen to fresh beef, and Wendy’s had something to say. “Today we’ve announced that by mid-2018, all Quarter Pounder burgers at the majority of our restaurants will be cooked with fresh beef,” McDonald’s proudly tweeted. Wendy’s official Twitter account found the loophole in McDonald’s tweet and replied. “So you’ll still use frozen beef in MOST of your burgers in ALL of your restaurants? Asking for a friend,” Wendy’s tweeted. Yikes!
Wendy’s did not stop there. Chris Crocker, who gained viral fame in 2007 for his “Leave Britney [Spears] Alone” video, replied with the laughing emoji. Wendy’s tweeted back at Chris, “LEAVE MCDONALDS ALONE!!!!!!” The Wendy’s Twitter account continued to gain fans left and right. It even joked about the similarities between Wendy and the comic book character Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad with a user. “Red outfit, pigtails….worth a try,” the tweet read.

This was not the first Twitter war Wendy’s has gotten itself involved in. The fast food chain went to war with Burger King in Jan. 2016. The two sparred over their meal deals in a series of petty yet hilarious tweets. It all started with Wendy’s 4 for $4 deal, but then BK tweeted, “5 for $4, because 5 is better than 4.” Wendy’s pretty much ended the battle with an epic two word tweet, “edible food.” Talk about a mic drop! Another Wendy’s Twitter feud with user “Thuggy D” ended up inspiring Wendy’s 2017 Super Bowl commercial.
