As you probably heard, a teenager named Carter Wilkerson is currently trying to get a year’s supply of free chicken nuggets from Wendy’s.
According to Wendy’s official Twitter account, all he has to do is get eighteen million people to RT this tweet:
While he’s still quite a ways away from eighteen million, dude is getting crazy retweets and is on hisway to having the most retweeted tweet of all time.
The tweet currently holding that record at approx 3.3 million RT’s is Ellen DeGeneres’ famous 2014 Oscars selfie, and she’s less than thrilled her record is in jeopardy.
DeGeneres shared a clip from her talk show on Twitter. “Not today, nugget boy,” she captioned it, and tagged Wilkerson.
“I’m angry,” she says. “I’m angry because I worked so hard to set that record.”
Then she goes on to make an argument as to why she deserves the record more than him.
“First I got my own sitcom, and then I came out, and then I lost everything… then I came back with my talk show and became so popular they asked me to host the Oscars… and then I gathered all the biggest stars into one selfie and I challenged the world to share it. And boom! I achieved my goal of the most retweeted tweet of all time. And this guy asked for nuggets??” she said.
Carter wasn’t intimidated and shot back with the news that Wendy’s just upped the ante.
