California Twitter account rips off Whataburger’s Notre Dame tweet, fails

Posted September 18th, 2016


After Texas beat Notre Dame in the first game of the season, Whataburger rubbed in the win by tweeting out a snide remark addressed to the Leprechauns.

But when Cal beat Texas Saturday night 50-43, a Twitter account named California Humor totally ripped off our beloved food chain. It posted a tweet saying “Texas Longhorns can still get a win by stopping by In-N-Out Burger on the way out of California #TEXvsCAL.”

There’s so much wrong here, Longhorns shouldn’t be remotely insulted. First off, it was plagiarized. Second, someone should inform whoever is running that account that Austin has its own In-N-Out. Third — is eating there even really a win? And fourth, maybe it would’ve been better if In-N-Out had actually been the one to tweet this.

People on Twitter definitely let California Humor know what’s up.
