Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and that goes for every International House of Pancakes, too. On Sunday, the breakfast restaurant franchise IHOP, which is known to play a bit fast and loose on Twitter, retweeted a rather severe assessment of former presidential contender Hillary Clinton.
And people were blown away.
There could be no question that IHOP had definitively revealed its far-left, no-nonsense, maybe-socialist, Bernie-would-have-won political stance.
Of course, some people were pissed.
But it seemed far more people were enamored of the move. Nothing in @IHOP's bio states that retweets ≠ endorsements, so this must be how they feel.
And for anyone who wasn't enthused, @poojaslays had a simple response:
Sadly, @IHOP did eventually delete the retweet, but not before we gained a great insight into their ideology. Stay strong, comrades—and don't get fired.
Update: IHOP now claims they were hacked. Here's a statement from Stephanie Peterson, IHOP Spokesperson.
"At the core of the IHOP brand is a desire to bring people together and a commitment to creating a warm and welcoming environment for guests and fans everywhere, both in our restaurants and online. After a thorough investigation, we have confirmed that the IHOP Twitter account was hacked this morning. The retweeted post in question was immediately removed, and we have taken the necessary steps to ensure the security and integrity of our social media accounts. We appreciate our fans bringing this to our attention and recognizing that this is not content normally shared by IHOP."
Of course, not everyone is having it.
All we can say is we're hungrier than ever—for the truth.
