Be careful of what you ask for.
In honor of National Roast Day, Wendy’s, a fast food restaurant who has become well-known for their digital jabs, offered to dole out insults to all comers. The New England Revolution expressed interest and the results weren’t particularly good for the soccer team.
Wendy’s decided to compare the Revs to the New England Patriots, noting that they have won a few championships. The Revs, of course, have been to five MLS Cup Finals, but have yet to win the ultimate prize.
The insult isn’t particularly unique since the Revs’ championship drought has been well-documented. Furthermore, everyone knows that the Revs don’t get the same level of attention as the Patriots, despite sharing a stadium and owner. That said, Wendy’s quick comment is a painful reminder of some of the underlying problems that plague the Revs. Adding to the moment is the fact that the Revs publicly asked to be mocked.
To make matters worse, D.C. United commented on the roast.
