Taylor Swift fans are taking a stand against Burger King after the fast food chain tweeted a snarky comment about her songs. The controversy began when someone on Twitter asked the Burger King account what its favorite song from the pop star is. The account replied, “The one about her ex.” The original tweets have now been deleted, but Swift’s fans reacted quickly to the comment. One user wrote that Burger King’s remark was “sexist,” while a different fan added “After all this Burger King controversy…now I want McDonald’s.” Swift has previously slammed “very sexist” opinions about her work, saying male artists write songs about exes but don’t face the same criticism as female artists. Burger King ultimately used it all to their advantage, referencing Swift’s “Shake It Off” in a promotional tweet. “let’s shake it off,” the post read. “celebrate #BurgerKingIsOverParty with the $3 shake + fries deal in the app.”
