Kanye West has announced on Twitter that his favourite restaurant is McDonald’s, sparking light-hearted comebacks from both Burger King and Wendy’s.
West wrote on Twitter, seemingly unprompted, “McDonald’s is my favorite restaurant”. Rival burger joint Burger King responded by tweeting “eyes still closed I guess”, a reference to West’s denouncement of Donald Trump a few weeks ago, having previously announced his support of the US President.
“My eyes are now wide open and now realise I’ve been used to spread messages I don’t believe in,” he wrote at the time. “I am distancing myself from politics and completely focusing on being creative!!!”
Burger King’s UK branch was more blunt, simply tweeting “Explains a lot.”
Wendy’s also got involved, making fun of West’s propensity for boasting and his 2016 song “I Love Kanye”.
