You have to have been living under a rock if you haven’t heard about KFC running out of chicken in the UK leading to scores of outlets shutting shop. KFC posted what we can only assume was a cheeky apology for running out of chicken. Obviously, it hasn’t gone down so well with some people taking to Twitter to voice their displeasure.

This woman is clearly unhappy.

Thanks to the traction this tweet received KFC reached out the woman, but Burger King swiftly one-upped them!
We’ll raise your leftover Ricebox with a year’s supply of fresh King Boxes! Someone put us in touch with her ?

This forced KFC to look for the humour in the situation.
Putting all your chips on the table..bold move BK. When our chips arrive we will match your stakes and too put all our chips on the table. Until then we have limited chips.

At least their Twitter game is strong, even if they have run out of birds.
