Ellen DeGeneres' Oscar Selfie Has Officially Been Dethroned by This Tweet approximately Chicken Nuggets – eonline
Ellen DeGeneres has been dethroned.
The comedian was once the queen of Twitter with the most retweeted message in the website’s history—until now, that is. While she famously set the record in 2014 with a star-studded selfie at the Academy Awards, her 3.430 million retweets acquire been exceeded by 3.435 million for a Nevada teenager who made a request to Wendy’s for a year of free chicken nuggets.
Per the now viral deal, Carter Wilkerson asked the snappy-food chain how many retweets it would consume to bag a year’s supply of the signature menu item and Wendy’s responded with “18 Million.” “Consider it done,” Carter responded with confidence.
While the tweet has not yet reached 18 million retweets, it has officially surpassed Ellen’s selfie—and that was fine enough for Wendy’s.
“@carterjwm is now the most retweeted tweet of outright-time. That’s fine for the nuggets, and $100k to @DTFA. Consider it done.
#nuggsforcarter,” the chain tweeted, noting a donation to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. “He gets them nuggs.”
Guinness World Records confirmed Wilkerson holds the unique record for most retweets as of Tuesday morning.
Meanwhile, Wilkerson wasted no time rubbing the win in DeGeneres’ face. “Hey@TheEllenShow sorry approximately that… Can I still maintain my TV and Underwear??” he tweeted to the daytime talk reveal.
Of course, the highly competitive talk reveal host pulled out outright the stops to preserve her crown, including enlisting Bradley Cooper for a public service announcement.
“We area our heart and our soul into that selfie,” Cooper said on her reveal. “I had to hold my arms up like this for approximately 35 to 40 seconds. My biceps were shaking!”
DeGeneres even invited Wilkerson on the reveal to meet him face to face. When she asked him why he was trying to sabotage her tough-earned record, Carter’s reasoning was simple: “I just want chicken nuggets.”
While she tried to bribe him with a year supply of Ellen underwear and a unique TV, it sounds like DeGeneres might reveal up at his house now to consume it outright back. Not to fret, Carter—you’re getting chicken nuggets!
