Wendy’s Scorches Twitter Troll In Magnificent Clap Back

He was burned so badly he deleted his account

Where’s the beef? On Twitter, apparently. Fast food giant Wendy’s has earned itself quite a few new fans and some media love after a hilarious social media takedown of one irate customer.

The brutal back and forth started after the since-deleted Twitter account for @NHride (since deleted) took a shot at the chain for its slogan, “Always fresh, never frozen.”

Right before the New Year, the Twitter account for Wendy’s sent out the seemingly innocuous message: “Our beef is way too cool to ever be frozen.”

@NHride wrote back, “your beef is frozen and we all know it. Y’all know we laugh at your slogan ‘fresh, never frozen,’ right? Like you’re really a joke.”

At first, Wendy’s responded gently but after the critic kept coming back for more, the fast food restaurant finally decided it was time for him to get served:

The takedown was so severe that @NHride actually deleted their Twitter account. While we’d never endorse cyberbullying in any form, this vintage clap back is one people simply could not help but applaud:

And think about it, it’s not very often that social media decides to rally around a corporate entity, especially one delivering fast food. But that’s just a testament to how quick witted the anonymous voice behind Wendy’s Twitter account is. Whoever that person is should immediately be up for a raise, including an unlimited supply of Frosty’s to compliment that cold, cold throttling.

And lest you think this is just a one-off joke, check out this thread to see the carnage spill out to include any who test the wrath of our red-headed burger boss.

Greta Thunberg has been dubbed the "Joan of Arc of climate change" for good reason. The 16-year-old activist embodies the courage and conviction of the unlikely underdog heroine, as well as the seemingly innate ability to lead a movement.

Thunberg has dedicated her young life to waking up the world to the climate crisis we face and cutting the crap that gets in the way of fixing it. Her speeches are a unique blend of calm rationality and no-holds-barred bluntness. She speaks truth to power, dispassionately and unflinchingly, and it is glorious.

The Trump Administration won't be remembered for being kind to animals.

In 2018, it launched a new effort to reinstate cruel hunting practices in Alaska that had been outlawed under Obama. Hunters will be able to shoot hibernating bear cubs, murder wolf and coyote cubs while in their dens, and use dogs to hunt black bears.

Efforts to end animal cruelty by the USDA have been curtailed as well. In 2016, under the Obama Administration, the USDA issued 4,944 animal welfare citations, in two years the numbers dropped to just 1,716.

A controversial editorial on America's obesity epidemic and healthcare by comedian Bill Maher on his HBO show "Real Time" inspired a thoughtful, and funny, response by James Cordon. It also made for a great debate about healthcare that Americans are avoiding.

At the end of the September 6th episode of "Real Time, " Maher turned to the camera for his usual editorial and discussed how obesity is a huge part of the healthcare debate that no one is having.

"At Next Thursday's debate, one of the candidates has to say, 'The problem with our healthcare system is Americans eat shit and too much of it.' All the candidates will mention their health plans but no one will bring up the key factor: the citizens don't lift a finger to help," Maher said sternly.

The common stereotypes about liberals and conservatives are that liberals are bleeding hearts and conservatives are cold-hearted.

It makes sense, conservatives want limited government and to cut social programs that help the more vulnerable members of society. Whereas liberals don't mind paying a few more dollars in taxes to help the unfortunate.

A recent study out of Belgium scientifically supports the notion that people who scored lower on emotional ability tests tend to have right-wing and racist views.
