Over the weekend, Kanye West revealed that McDonald’s is his favorite restaurant. While that’s not really shocking or newsworthy, it did spark several comments from not only his peers like Rick Ross but also rival fast-food companies. Earlier today, Burger King U.K.’s Twitter account had some shade to throw at ‘Ye.
Burger King U.K.’s Twitter account went full-savage today after Kanye West tweeted that McDonald’s is his favorite restaurant. In light of ‘Ye’s behavior over the past few months, they quoted his tweet and said, “Explains a lot.” However, that wasn’t all they had to say to Kanye. After getting over 250K retweets on their initial tweet, the fast-food joint joked, “If we knew this was going to blow up we would have made a soundcloud.”
BK also poked fun at Kanye’s recent announcement that he’d be leaving politics. “eyes still closed I guess,” the tweet reads. Prior to this tweet, Kanye wrote on Twitter, “My eyes are now wide open and now realize I’ve been used to spread messages I don’t believe in. I am distancing myself from politics and completely focusing on being creative !!!”
While BK seems to take Kanye’s love for McDonald’s personally, it shouldn’t be that surprising that ‘Ye prefers a Big Mac over a Whopper. ‘Ye penned a poem titled, “The McDonald’s Man” for Frank Ocean’s “Boys Don’t Cry” magazine that was released in conjunction with Blonde.
