This last week, Burger King began running an ad in which a guy ran up to people on the street, told them about Burger King products, and yelled at them. The whole thing basically ripped off Billy Eichner’s man-on-the-street schtick, and last night, when Eichner found out, he went ballistic on Twitter.

After that, tons of Billy Eichner fans on Twitter came to bat for him, ripping Burger King in new and hilarious ways.

Then, the celebrities starting weighing on on behalf of Eichner.

And this is why you can’t get away with sh*t like this in the digital age. Complaints will go viral. Dollars to donuts, Burger King pulls those ads by day’s end.

Here’s the ad in question, by the way.
