Wendy’s Turns Up on IHOP Over New Name Change

After IHOP announced Monday that it would no longer focus on pancakes, Wendy’s took aim at the 60-year-old eatery and dragged it for diving into burgers.

“Dear Internet, we abbreciate your batience. Now let’s see who guessed right. B-hold!!!!! #IHOb,” IHOb tweeted June 11 in its confirmation that it’s turning attention to steakburgers. (intentionally replacing the ‘p’ in each word with ‘b.’)

When a Twitter user who seems to be well-versed in Wendy’s penchant for clapping back heard the news, he asked the fast food chain for a response.

“So @Wendys u just gonna let @IHOb sell burgers on your block? thought you were the og?” Tony X said.

“Not really afraid of the burgers from a place that decided pancakes were too hard,” Wendy’s responded.

And they didn’t stop there. Wendy’s also posted another diss.

Still, IHOb remained calm and insisted they wanted no trouble with the Dave Thomas-founded eatery. And Wendy’s responded in kind.

Still, other restaurants took aim at IHOb, too.
