Burger King’s tweet garnered ten thousand replies. Their memo called “Order from McDonald’s” has been liked 113.6 thousand times as of this writing.

“We never thought we would ask you to do this, just as we never imagined we would ask you to order from KFC, Domino’s Pizza, Subway, Five Guys, Greggs, Papa John’s, Taco Bell and other independent food outlets, too numerous to mention here. In short, from any of our sister food chains (fast or not so fast).

“We never thought we’d be asking you to do this, but restaurants employing thousands of staff really needs your support at the moment.

“So, if you want to help, keep treating yourself to tasty meals through home delivery, take away or drive thru. Getting a Whopper is always best, but ordering a Big Mac is also not such a bad thing.”
