Waffle House Boycotts Belgian Waffles For Team USA, Twitter Cheers On [Photos]

 

We found it odd that Waffle House was tweeting, much less from their verified account (they can afford Internet?). But on Tuesday morning (July 1), the regional breakfast icon sent out a slew of posts urging Americans to boycott the Belgian (not Belgium) waffle in anticipation of today’s U.S.-Belgium fútbol game.

Despite that the Belgian waffle is not really a cultural delicacy and only largely popular in North America (as opposed to the actual country of Belgium), Waffle House declared war against the square breakfast treat as a sign of patriotism for Team USA.

It didn’t take long for Twitter to catch on and join in on the barrage of slander against the Belgium team and their not-so-much native dish.

Hit the flip to see the number of tweets we collected for your laughing pleasure.

    That’s hilarious and it certainly did it’s job to get people amped up! I don’t think people even minded or cared that they said Belgium instead of Belgian waffles or their origin for that matter. The sentiment is what counted!

No thanks
