Default 'Guess that's 2020 for ya': Domino's responds to Twitter backlash over thanking a Tru

As if we needed more evidence about how un-hinged the left has become. Now apparently NOT condemning someone for a compliment is akin to treason. I will be happy when and if civility is ever back in the public domain.

'Guess that's 2020 for ya': Domino's responds to Twitter backlash over thanking a Trump staffer for a compliment 8 years ago

Domino's has responded to social-media backlash centered around a tweet from eight years ago.

A 2012 tweet from current White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany recently gained attention on Twitter. McEnany tweeted at the time: "FUN FACT: @dominos is wayyyy better than any NYC pizza."

"That's one heck of a compliment! Thanks for the love! #WEAPPRECIATEIT!" Domino's responded.

The 8-year-old exchange prompted anger on Twitter this week.

Celebrity chef Dave Chang tweeted, "F--- you @Dominos." Political consultant Rick Wilson tweeted that Domino's "killed" its brand.

Domino's acknowledged the backlash on Tuesday in a response to Wilson's tweet.

"Welp. It's unfortunate that thanking a customer for a compliment back in 2012 would be viewed as political. Guess that's 2020 for ya," the pizza chain tweeted.

A number of fast-food chains have faced backlash over claims that they have donated to President Donald Trump's reelection campaign. An analysis by Business Insider found that few executives or companies had donated to Trump, though many donate to political figures, with donations skewing toward politicians on the right.

Good answer from Domino's. These idiots who dredge something up innocuous as a tweet regarding a compliment on food really need to get a life. They WANT to be offended by something to feel relevant.

Instead, to feel relevant, how about going out and buying a family in need a dinner, or donating food to a homeless shelter. Oh, wait, that means personal involvement, and we can't have that!

Domino's stands tall whilst coach Bundy folds. His principles sacrificed for $4 million.

Gutless. It's time that grown ups stand up and fight back against the Twitter-Flakes that are offended by everything these days. By cowering to these brain dead morons, it only emboldens them to find more things to be offended over.

Our nation was founded by men who risked life and fortunes to create a nation based on the principles of natural law. To do the right thing by creating a nation based on equal application of justice for all citizens.

If coach Bundy is supposed to be a mentor and leader of young men, then I find myself ashamed of what we would call men of principle today.
