Two of the most savage corporate Twitter accounts out there also just happen to both be fast food resturant Twitter accounts: Burger King and Wendy’s. If you don’t follow both of them then you’re simply doing Twitter wrong.

Heck, Wendy’s once roasted a Nebraska football fan so hard on Twitter that she deleted her account. They’ve also been known to go hard at other fast food franchises like McDonald’s and the aforementioned Burger King.

And while Wendy’s came out of top in that head-to-head social media battle, Burger King is no slouch when it comes to trolling as they too have taken a turn roasting McDonald’s on Twitter in the past.

Now, however, Burger King has aimed its social media snark at another pop culture icon: Kanye West.

On Sunday, for no apparent reason other than it’s what he does, Kanye tweeted out, “McDonald’s is my favorite restaurant.”

This we already knew thanks to that amazing poem he wrote in 2016 about the Golden Arches.

Sensing a “golden” opportunity, Burger King, both in the United States as well as in the United Kingdom, dropped a couple of responses that have since gone viral because they’re pretty much perfect.

That, one would assume was a reference to this Kanye tweet.

The UK’s BK was a little less subtle.

Needless to say, folks on Twitter were eating it up. (Pun 100% intended.)

Of course, Wendy’s wasn’t completely silent on the matter.

I’m lovin’ it.
