A made-up tweet about Olive Garden supporting Trump sparked a boycott

Over the weekend, news that Olive Garden was supporting Trumps reelection campaign spread like wildfire across Twitter. #BoycottOliveGarden trended for hours.

Theres just one problem: It isnt true. The Daily Dot could find no record of Olive Garden or its owner, Darden Restaurants, donating to Donald Trump.

But no matter; the pyre was stacked and Resistance Twitter was ready and willing to roast Olive Garden.

Some took aim at the fare. No one should ever eat at a chain Italian restaurant, where your money goes to the highly paid execs who cant even cook. You go where mama, the owner, is in the kitchen, fixin your pasta herself. #BoycottOliveGarden, one wrote.

Yall want me to boycott Chick-Fil-A, Taco Bell, In-N-Out Burger, Pizza Hut, KFC, Waffle House, IHOP, Wendys, KFC, AND OLIVE GARDEN?! Whats left Im sorry, but Ima still eat their crusty, oversalted breadsticks #BoycottOliveGarden, another lamented, referencing the numerouspolitically-motivated restaurant boycotts, such as that of Nestle.

Trump supporters, meanwhile, busily proclaimed their intention to eat copious amounts of unlimited breadsticks and salad in solidarity. Thanks for letting us know! Not a fan of Olive Garden but will now go to show my support! said one woman.
