First, Popeye’s posted a tantalizing tweet describing the new sandwiches.
“Chicken. Brioche. Pickles. New. Sandwich. Popeyes. Nationwide. So. Good. Forgot. How. Speak. In. Complete. Sandwiches. I mean, sentences,” it read.

Then, Chick-fil-A seemed to subtweet Popeye’s, bragging about their “original” sandiwch.

Then, Wendy’s got involved, bragging about their own sandwich.
Y’all out here fighting about which of these fools has the second best chicken sandwich. pic.twitter.com/4v9RJFgy0T

Zaxby’s even retweeted some saying their sandwich was the best which was definitely a more subtle diss.
The Zaxbys chicken sandwich is underrated tho

Shake Shack also promoted their chicken sandwich “with no beef” to attempt to stay neutral in the war.

One of the most hilarious brand tweets is from Bojangle’s, who deleted their post bragging about their own chicken sandwich.

Truly blessed to see the great chicken sandwich war of 2019. Begging Popeyes to do a diss record with Hit ‘Em Up in the background.

I’ve had that Popeyes chicken sandwich like 3 times since Saturday. I hope they’re on the Upper Room menu whenever king Jesus on high calls me home. I want them served at my repast too.

The Bell: A Taco Bell Hotel and Resort was a 4-day-only pop-up resort in Palm Springs, California.
Rooms for the experience sold out almost immediately and apparently, those who got to go saw some interesting things, including a Taco Bell-themed hair salon.
At the salon, you could get braids, manicures and fades that all fit into the chain restaurant’s theme. You can see some of the services offered there below.

My #tacobellhotel manicure and the TACO BELL ROBES IN THE HOTEL ROOM!!!!! I don’t think I need to buy one, but just wearing it around the room brings me joy (also, all hotel robes make me think of @EmmaFyffe 5ever 💖) pic.twitter.com/KqX75jcjOf
