Schumer says that Wendy's refuses to protect female farmworkers from sexual assault in the fields.
Fans of fast food chain Wendy's are excited that Chance The Rapper helped bring back the restaurant's spicy chicken nuggets, but not everyone is cheering about the news. The Chicago rapper took to Twitter to make an open plea for the return of one of his favorite to-go foods, and with the help of two million social media users, they made his dream come true.
"Positive Affirmations for today: I WILL have a good day, I Will succeed today, Wendy’s WILL bring back spicy nuggets at some point please please Lord let it be today," Chance wrote on May 4. Wendy's responded by saying, "Y’all keep asking, so here’s your chance.
The people in charge say if you guys can get our tweet (this one right here) to 2 Million likes, they will bring SPICY CHICKEN NUGGETS BACK.
Let’s freakin’ do this!"
Chance hopes the spicy chicken nuggets will make their debut on the same day he drops his album in July, but comedian Amy Schumer isn't here for it. She shared on Instagram that she has no problem with Chance, but claims the fast food restaurant's treatment of their female farmworkers is appalling. "Hey! We love @chancetherapper and hate to be the ones to tell him that Wendys is the only fast food chain refusing to protect farmworker women from sexual assault and rape in the fields," she wrote.
"This is true," Amy continued. "Please read that sentence again. Message for the people in charge: Instead of spicy nuggets, we want food that is harvested with dignity NOT violence. Please join the @fairfoodprogram and #BoycottWendys link in my bio of how you can help." Are y'all joining the Wendy's boycott or are you riding for those spicy chicken nuggets?
