Aside from being one of the most popular fast food chains in North America, Wendy’s is also well known for its relentless savagery on social media.

With January 4 being National Roast Day, things would not be complete without Wendy’s going on a nice long session of roasting on Twitter, which included popular Fortnite content creators CouRage and Dakotaz.

Well aware of what Wendy’s is fully capable of, both streamers tweeted at the fast food chain asking to be hit with a roast, but even they were shocked at how bad they were burned.

CouRage was first, with Wendy’s hitting him with “You’re the only dude that flossed when Ninja asked you to,” referencing the infamous moment during Ninja’s New Year’s Eve celebration stream when the popular streamer stood out in the rain and tried to get a million people to do the Floss Fortnite dance.

The result was a cringy few minutes as no one did the dance or even moved much in response, except apparently for CouRage, who was at the celebration streaming with Ninja. 

Funnily enough, Wendys’ roast towards Dakotaz also had to do with Ninja, for when the streamer asked Wendy’s to “hit him” with a roast, the account replied with “Looks like your Ninja interview beat us to it.”

While it appears that CouRage and Dakotaz were the only two Fortnite-related personalities that were hit with roasts, Wendy’s did not discriminate when it came to superstars from other spheres.

A scan through their massive thread of roasts reveals that they hit the likes of popular YouTuber David Dobrik, esports insider Slasher, the official SMITE page, KFC Gaming, and many other prominent gaming and content creation pages and personalities. 

The highlights and best tweets from Wendys’ January 4 roasting spree can be viewed in the thread provided below:

Conor McGregor explains why YouTube boxing is “good business” for the sport

Jake Paul and Logan Paul helped popularize ‘YouTube Boxing’ in recent years, although it’s often described as a mockery of the sport. However, Conor McGregor explained why he isn’t against it and thinks it’s good business.

Conor McGregor has been focused on his upcoming UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier for a while now. However, that hasn’t stopped Jake Paul from doing his best to rope the former double champion into an exhibition boxing match.

Jake first called him out back in November 2020 after he knocked out Nate Robinson. Then, he taunted him to accept a $50 million fight offer several weeks later and has been flailing about ever since. 

He still hasn’t managed to get his attention. However, his antics did draw out comments from UFC President Dana White and Conor’s coach, John Kavanagh. Now, Conor has finally shared his thoughts on YouTube boxing as a whole, and here’s what he had to say.

Jake Paul has tried and failed to bait a response from Conor McGregor.

“A lot of people are criticizing [YouTube boxing] as maybe making a bit of a mockery of fighting,” asked an interviewer. It’s the predominant view among fans of combat sports. “I want you to weigh in on that for me.” 

“If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting, right?” said Conor. “They’re getting in, and they’re competing. I am not so much against it. The YouTube kid and the NBA star competing [was] good business.

“Am I into those competitions myself? It’s not the most high level if any level… [but] as they say if it makes dollars, it makes sense,” he added. “I know Dana and the UFC are not really into it, but… I’m not so against it. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”

Conor’s opinion might come as a surprise to fans who expected him to make scathing comments. However, as a businessman himself, it seems like he’s all for it. Plus, as he said, YouTube boxers are still fighting and giving it their all.

On another note, Conor didn’t seem too incensed about Jake. He barely mentioned him at all. 

Still, it’s only a matter of time before Jake responds, and there’s no doubt he won’t be too thrilled about being referred to as “the YouTube kid.”
