- The battle began when Wingstop shared a re-purposed rap verse from Migos’ song Bad and Boujee to which Wendy’s responded with: ‘Sit down, be humble’
- What ensued was a prolific swapping of raps that ended with Wendy’s declaring victory, telling its opponent ‘you crossed the boss and straight got told’
Wendy’s has become well known for cultivating a Twitter presence so sassy that no other fast food chain dare step up to challenge it – until now.
The latest target of the chain’s online sass is chicken wing restaurant Wingstop, whose re-purposing of a rap verse got Wendy’s all riled up.
It all began on Monday when Wingstop wrote some lines based on the words from Migos’ song Bad and Boujee.
Head-to-head: Wendy’s and Wingstop faced off in an epic Twitter rap battle earlier this week
Putting it out there: It all began when the chicken wings restaurant wrote some lines based on the words from Migos’ song Bad and Boujee
Hit back: Wendy’s responded with a line from a Kendrick Lamar song
‘Gamestop, Wingstop. Copped a new game for the [Xbox]. Saucin’ and tossin’ our wings in a pot, pot. We got that Original Hot, Hot,’ reads the tweet.
Wendy’s apparently took the verse to be stepping into its turf of clever Twitterisms and shot back with a quote from Kendrick Lamar: ‘Sit down, be humble.’
But instead of backing down, Wingstop took on the challenge, turning Wendy’s own marketing slogan against it.
‘Be there. Done that. Bring something fresh… not frozen,’ the restaurant shot back.
Throwing it back: Wingstop wasn’t deterred, turning Wendy’s own slogan back on it
Escalating quickly: Soon enough, both chains were spitting verses fast and furious
Peace out: Wendy’s has become well known for being the standard in sassy social media
Great rhymes: Name-calling didn’t take long to appear in the raps
Things just escalated from there, with Wendy’s busting out a slick verse in reply, not only using its famous slogan, but also dropping in a mention of the chain’s popular frozen ice cream dessert.
‘Fresh, never frozen since 69. Trying to cop that mixtape, better get in line. Grabbed a couple wings now you’re trying to fly. But nothing gets ’em dipping like a Frosty and fry.’
Wingstop took just seven minutes to hit back with: ‘A frosty and a fry? Giiiirl bye. Wingstop flavor bringin’ all the cravers! They eat us now and save you for later.’
Things only became more vicious, with Wendy’s calling Wingstop ‘a laughless clown, or a king that’s throneless’ before suggesting it serves up its wings ‘uuuuhhhhhhh boneless.’
Not so much: Wingstop declared picking burgers over chicken to be ‘weak’
Winding it down: Wendy’s kept things going with ‘bars on a warm toasted bun’
Flying high: Wingstop kept coming back again and again
Hitting home: Wendy’s tried to finish things off by declaring Wingstop ‘crossed the boss and straight got told’
More shade was thrown as Wingstop suggested choosing burgers over wings was ‘weak’ and Wendy’s claimed to be ‘serving up bars on a warm toasted bun.’
In the end, Wendy’s finished its offering with the line: ‘We know why the chicken crossed the road. But you crossed the boss and straight got told.’
Wingstop came back with: ‘You’re queen of retweets with no soul. We’re king of flavor & everything else for that matter. You talk a good game but it’s all chatter.’
After the dust had settled, Twitter users seemed to agree with the legendary burger chain, with one writing: ‘Drake boutta get Wendy’s as his next ghostwriter.’
Another user asked: ‘Are you gonna send them a frosty for that burn @Wendys?’
