Wendy's starts Twitter war with McDonald's over its 'Fresh Beef' plan

By Troy Frisby, Buzz60

In the fast food game, Wendy's came to win.

McDonald's announced on Twitter that "by mid-2018, all Quarter Pounder burgers at the majority of our restaurants will be cooked with fresh beef."

But like 2012-era McKayla Maroney, Wendy was not impressed. The red-headed diva fired back, tweeting: "So you'll still use frozen beef in MOST of your burgers in ALL of your restaurants? Asking for a friend."

Looks like the Clapback Queen no longer thinks it's "good to be square."

As Wendy's put it, "Someone ordered a smackdown, and we Super Sized it."

When a Twitter user asked if they were "starting beef" with Mickey D's, Wendy's shot back: "We'll stick to our fresh beef. They can have those ice chips they're serving."

Another customer tweeted at Wendy's asking: "Can you ask them if they still sell McFlurries?"

To which the fast food chain again threw some side eye at its competitor, cracking: "Only when the ice cream machine isn't broken."

That's one sick freezer burn.
