Burger King trolls Kanye West over his love for McDonald’s.
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.
