Oh, the shade! Burger King may be starting drama after referencing Kanye West’s new song about their rival food chain.
In West’s new “Closed On Sunday” song, the rapper mentions Chick-fil-A. His song was released this week and the lyrics are, “Closed on Sunday, you my Chick-fil-A. You're my number one, with the lemonade.”
Another lyric in the song is, “Closed on Sunday, you my Chick-fil-A. Hold the selfies, put the gram away. Get your family, y’all hold hands and pray.”
Now Burger King is tweeting back!
Burger King has 1.8 million followers on its page as the post gained 4,000 reactions with the majority of people liking the post.
Social media followers then expressed how the tweet was throwing shade to Chick-fil-A.
According to Daily Mail UK, the Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy decided to close the restaurants on Sundays encouraging people to spend time with family.
Chick-fil-A’s twitter did not respond to Burger King’s tweet. In fact, a spokesperson for the company said, “We are always grateful to see excitement about the brand.”
Back in September, Chick-fil-A announced the company finally reached its 2014 goal, a pledge to serve only “No Antibiotics Ever” protein and poultry.
This means no meat will be sold that has been treated with any type of antibiotic drug at any stage. The popular chicken chain has been serving antibiotic-free chicken since May, but packaging in restaurants won’t reflect this until October.
