Carter Wilkerson recently broke the world record for the highest number of retweets when his pleas to Wendy’s for free chicken nuggets was shared over 3.4 million times.

Wendy’s was so impressed it offered him his year of free “nuggs” regardless, and a sizeable donation to a charity.

But then, just as celebrations were underway, United Airlines decided to chime in and ruin everyone’s fun.

They offered Wilkerson a free flight, and seemed to have forgotten the recent PR nightmare they were still experiencing for dragging an innocent passenger off their plane.

No one else has forgotten however, and their offer backfired majorly.
