'Eyes still closed I guess': Burger King roasts Kanye West after he shares his love for rival McDonald's
The diss followed Kanye West's decision to stay away from politics, which he attached with a statement that said: "My eyes are now wide open"
Kanye West's eyes might be open when it comes to politics, but according to Burger King they still seem to be closed when it comes to his choice of fast food.
The fast food giant took to Twitter to roast the rapper after he shared his love for rivals McDonald's and said that it was his favorite restaurant.
In a hilarious response to Kanye's love for McDonald's, Burger King retorted on Twitter, "Eyes still closed I guess".
Their diss follows Kanye's rant last week where he decided to keep a distance from politics. At the time, he wrote, "My eyes are now wide open and now realize I’ve been used to spread messages I don’t believe in". Burger King was not done roasting Kanye and wrote further, "Explains a lot".
McDonald’s is my favorite restaurant— ye (@kanyewest) November 4, 2018
Kanye has been very candid about his love for the fast food franchise and has previously shared that McDonald's was his favorite brand. In the year 2016, he wrote a poem to McDonald's as a part of Frank Ocean's album which is titled 'Blonde'. The 29-line-long poem discussed the rapper's love for the brand. Three lines of the poem read, "I always knew them French fries was evil man/ Smelling all good and s***/ I don’t trust no food that smells that good man".
Burger King was not the only fast food joint which decided to call Kanye out on his love for McDonald's. Fast-food joint Wendy's also poked fun at the rapper and took to Twitter to share, "I'm my favorite restaurant". The post chose to play on Kanye's love for himself and many fans commended Wendy's for their hilarious response. One person shared, "Wendy's loves Wendy's like Kanye loves Kanye" while another fan said that the fast-food chain's Twitter account is the 'dopest'.
Kanye's decision to stay away from politics came after he was associated with a line of 'Blexit' merchandise that asked Black Americans to ditch the Democratic party in favor of the Republicans. The project was a brainchild of Candace Owens of Turning Point USA, who has been instrumental in getting Kanye to come out in support of President Donald Trump.
Earlier on, Owens had claimed that Kanye had designed the t-shirts for 'Blexit' which West said he had "nothing to do with".
Following the flak he received for being associated with a campaign to asks African Americans to move away from the Democrats, Kanye clarified that he was being "used to spread messages" that he does not believe in and iterated his stance to keep away from politics and focus on his creative endeavors.
West also said that he would concentrate on causes which he believes in including prison reform and 'common sense gun laws'.
