Wendy’s just ripped a rival chain to pieces with a single, brutal tweet.
On Tuesday, the fast-food chain Carl’s Jr. tweeted that Wendy’s couldn’t compare to its quality.
“LOL they don’t,” the chain replied to a Twitter user who asked how Wendy’s and Carl’s Jr. compared.
At first, the tweet was mostly ignored, with few people liking or retweeting it.
Then, on Wednesday morning, Wendy’s responded.
“If we were going to diss another restaurant we’d have more than zero likes and RTs after 13 hours,” said the chain, known for its snarky social media presence.
Roughly 10 minutes after Wendy’s posted the tweet, it had been liked more than 2,000 times and retweeted more than 700 times.
Carl’s Jr.’s tweet had fewer than 20 retweets and 60 likes at the same time on Wednesday morning.
