Whataburger, Wingstop Twitter feud forces Texans to take sides

It started with a Tweet, as so many feuds these days do.

All Garland-born chicken wing chain Wingstop wanted was a friend. Whataburger, insisting that there was beef between the two Texas chains, insisted on some distance.

Others expressed frustration that Whataburger and Wingstop would ever dare make them choose between the two. stop beefin

Eventually, the feud and/or publicity stunt came to an end as both restaurants united around a single vision: #WingstopWhataburger2020.
