Where would we be without NBC News to steer us toward the stories that really matter? Like, if not for them, we might never have known that Chick-fil-A is still a hotbed of racism.

Check this out:

Dear God, Chick-fil-A. Did you really think you could get away with something like this?

Narrator: Chick-fil-A did, in fact, think they could get away with it. Because they didn’t actually do anything wrong.

That just about sums it up, yeah:

A Twitter user tweeted at the fast-food chain Friday: “grilled spicy deluxe but still noooo spicy nuggets…………@ChickfilA…..”

In direct response, the official Twitter account for Chick-fil-A responded, “Your community will be the first to know if spicy items are added to the permanent menu, Don!”

While the initial tweet had only six replies, Chick-fil-A’s response got more than 700 replies and 4,300 quote tweets because of its choice of wording. Many Twitter users called out the account’s decision to use the term “your community,” questioning whether it was targeting the identity of the user, who appears to be Black.

Any Twitter users who called out the account’s decision to use the term “your community” are morons. As is NBC News for thinking there was even a story here.

Seriously, it’s not hard to find other similar tweets from Chick-fil-A.

That’s the thing, though! Francesca Gariano, who wrote this story, actually notes that other Twitter users also pointed out that the “your community” phrase has appeared in numerous Chick-fil-A tweets:

Other users pointed out it is a common response from the fast-food chain’s social media accounts. One shared a screenshot of another tweet from Chick-fil-A at the end of last month.

“All jokes aside, they reply like this frequently,” the user wrote.

Another user shared a screenshot of a series of tweets from Chick-fil-A replying to other Twitter users, highlighting messages that mentioned the word “community.” Alongside the screenshot, the user wrote “Y’all hilarious” alongside a laughing emoji.

In other words, this was a huge nothingburger. Or nothingchickensandwich, in this case.

Anyway, here’s a parting little nugget of food for thought:

Go away, NBC News. Unlike when it comes to Chick-fil-A, no one likes you.
