Taylor Swift fans are very sensitive, so a recent joke Burger King made about the singer has them in hot water with the fanbase. The fast-food chain is under fire for a response they made to a tweet a “Swiftie” sent them. The tweet read, “@Burgerking I need to know… what’s yalls favorite Taylor Swift song?” Burger King’s response: “The one about her ex.”
Although it was a lighthearted joke about the singer’s well-known history of writing about past relationships, it wasn’t taken lightly.
If you look on Twitter, #BurgerKingisover is trending, and the responses are a mix of humor and anger. There are even responses from other fast-food chains who have joined in on the fun.
