Welcome to the great fast food chicken sandwich feud of 2019, where the meat — and the insults — are coming in hot.

Last week, Popeyes debuted its first-ever fried chicken sandwich, sending fans of the chain running to order the buttermilk-battered brioche bun meal.

Popeyes - Loyal - Customers - Chick-fil-A - Supporters

But Popeyes isn't content to just charm its own loyal customers: It's coming for Chick-fil-A supporters, too, and made that bitingly clear when it kicked off a feud with the fast food rival on Twitter on Monday.

This particular **** fight began with a tweet from Popeyes promoting its new sandwich, which is made with either mayo or spicy Cajun spread.

Brioche - Pickles - New - Sandwich - Popeyes

'Chicken. Brioche. Pickles. New. Sandwich. Popeyes. Nationwide. So. Good. Forgot. How. Speak. In. Complete. Sandwiches. I mean, sentences,' the brand wrote on April 12.

A week later, Chick-fil-A mimicked the tweet with its own, writing: 'Bun + Chicken + Pickles = all the ❤️ for the original.'


Popeyes quickly punched back, writing, '...y'all good?'

Fast food fans were quickly taking sides, reacting with memes and jokes of their own. They also cast their own votes with likes: While Chick-fil-A's tweet was liked over 19,000 times, Popeyes' reply was liked over 309,000 times.

And it still wasn't over.

Later that night, Wendys — the fast food chain that that might be called the godfather of snarky brand accounts — chimed in.

Fools - Chicken - Sandwich - Wendy - Account

'Y’all out here fighting about which of these fools has the second best chicken sandwich,' the Wendy's account tweeted.

Popeyes soon at a retort for them, too: 'Sounds like someone just ate one of our biscuits. Cause y’all looking thirsty.'

Guess - Food - Jokes - Wendy

'lol, guess that means the food’s as dry as the jokes,' Wendy's replied.
