If you haven't noticed, Wendy's Twitter account has had the internet freaking out lately. It all started on January 3, when a Twitter user called "Thuggy-D" attempted to say that Wendy's was lying about the fact that they don't ever freeze their burgers. It didn't go over so well, and the user deleted their account. Then, the Wendy's account accidentally retweeted a racist meme. Oops! And since then, all semblances of social media decorum have been utterly dropped, as Wendy's has dished out dozens of no-holds-barred replies to internet trolls. I mean:
So, who is behind these "sick burns," if you will? Her name is Amy Brown, and she's been the social media manager for Wendy's since 2012, Mashable reports. According to Wendy's VP of Advertising, Brandon Rhoten, she got the job "after trolling her on Twitter." Not sure what's worse: being trolled on Twitter or sitting through an interview, but I'm glad she got the job.
Brown and her social media team were also behind the Wendy's vs. Burger King duel in January of 2016, which you might have forgotten about. When asked what was better than Burger King's "5 for $4" deal, Wendy's responded with an own that broke the internet:
Weird how it seems like every so often Wendy's comes out of the woodwork to create drama, right? Apparently, that's just how Brown's circadian rhythm works.
Was Brown destined to be the social media manager for the fast food chain? Maybe. Even her mom knew she'd someday put her teenage snark to use.
Even if she comes off as snarky, Brown clearly has a heart of gold. She even spreads the credit for her recent internet popularity around to the rest of her social media team! What a freaking gem.
Not sure if Amy is looking for part-time gigs right now, but I'd personally love to hire her to walk around with me the next time I expect to get catcalled.
