Popeye's Chicken Tried to Troll Chick-Fil-A, but Got a Lesson from Wendy's Instead

Chick-fil-A is the undisputed champion of chicken sandwiches, but there are others who would like to be. One established chicken joint is Popeye’s, and it decided to try to trounce Chick-fil-A in the digital public square, only things didn’t work out so well for them in the end as a new challenger entered the ring.


It all started when Chick-fil-A tweeted out a simple meme that said a bun, plus chicken, plus pickles equals love.

For some reason, Popeye’s decided to answer with “y’all good?” Not sure why, or what they meant, but whatever.

For some reason, this caused the internet to go insane, and think that Popeye’s really served up a beatdown on the number one chicken sandwich chain in America. They even had to go and make it political.


Chick-fil-A didn’t respond. It doesn’t need to, really. It’s number one in chicken, number three overall behind McDonald’s and Starbucks, and even McDonald’s is afraid of it. That’s what good food and even better service gets you.


But it was all fun and games until the queen of Twitter shade showed up. Wendy’s began using its trademark snark to make itself the star of the show, which it did.

I’ve had Wendy’s chicken sandwich. It’s actually pretty good, but not Chick-fil-A good. Bojangles is probably even better, but I digress. Popeye’s attempted to strike back at Wendy’s…

But it was no use. Wendy’s is too good at this.

You don’t mess with Wendy’s on Twitter. You just…you just don’t. Still, people didn’t take Wendy’s clap-back well and attacked them for their CEO donating to Trump.


Twitter users seem to be overly angry at Chick-fil-A and Wendy’s over their leadership’s support for right-wing candidates and/or conservative American values, but both have well-deserved popularity for their food and, in Wendy’s case, their Twitter account.

It would appear everyone else is just salty.
