Burger King trolls Kanye West after he says McDonald's is his favourite restaurant

Headlines 06/11/2018

Kanye West professed his love for McDonald's over the weekend, revealing that it was his favourite restaurant. By Kanye's standards, there's nothing really noteworthy or controversial about this statement, but it did catch the attention of the golden arches' greatest foe.

Burger King UK's Twitter account left it's chill at home today, throwing some well timed shade at the rapper. Referencing 'Ye's recently questionable behaviour, the fast food giant replied to Kanye's love of Maccas by simply saying "Explains a lot."

Shortly after racking up over 250K retweets, Burger King UK chimed in one more time to really stick the knife in, joking "If we knew this was going to blow up we would have made a soundcloud." 

The Burger King global Twitter page then jumped in on the verbal beatdown, poking fun at Kanye's recent announcement that he'd be leaving politics. In the announcement he writes ""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 !!!" To which BK replies, "eyes still closed I guess."
