After Rick and Morty brought Szechuan sauce back to mainstream popularity, McDonald's decided to finally bring back the condiment to please all of the fans. However, the fast food chain didn't handle the one-day release of the sauce very well, and other franchises are getting in on ribbing it.
Rick and Morty fans flooded McDonald's locations around the country to try and get their hands on the sacred sauce, which hasn't been available since 1998. Much to their dismay, hordes of those looking for sauce were turned away, as many of the locations claimed to be sold out.
In a fit of rage, fans flooded Twitter with irate messages directed at McDonald's, and it looks like Wendy's joined in the fun.
The Twitter account for the rival fast food chain started replying to many of these customers, absolutely slaughtering McDonald's in the process.
Like a true friend, Wendy's began telling many fans that it would always be there for them, no matter how let down they were by McDonald's.
Sorry you had to live through this. We'll be here for you.— Wendy's (@Wendys) October 7, 2017

After comforting the fans, Wendy's went straight after the Golden Arches.
? oh no, so awkward for them— Wendy's (@Wendys) October 7, 2017
We'll just sit back and let them continue to end themselves— Wendy's (@Wendys) October 7, 2017
Poor Ronald McDonald never stood a chance.
Glad we could pick up the slack for those clowns— Wendy's (@Wendys) October 7, 2017
Since the whole issue was about the lack of Szechuan Sauce at McDonald's, Wendy's was certainly going to address the issue with a heavy hand.
Just follow the line of disappointed fans that didn't get sauce.— Wendy's (@Wendys) October 8, 2017
We'd say follow the trail of sauce, but there aren't nearly enough to make a trail.— Wendy's (@Wendys) October 7, 2017
This might have been the biggest roast of the entire exchange.
We'll start by actually having our sauce.— Wendy's (@Wendys) October 8, 2017
