Chance The Rapper Urges Wendy's to Bring Back Spicy Nuggets, Appears to Succeed

Wendy's removal of spicy chicken nuggets has been one of the greater fast food tragedies of the 21st century. Chance The Rapper joined the crusade in hopes of bringing back the mouthwatering nugs with a hopeful post to Twitter on Sunday (May 5), and it looks like he can now consider it a mission accomplished. 

"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," the Chicago native tweeted to start his Sunday. Just a few hours later, the official Wendy's Twitter responded by issuing a challenge to their patrons. 

"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," the fast food chain said. Twitter held up their end of the bargain, as the post surpassed the two-million likes barometer in less than 12 hours.

"THIS IS NOT A DRILL! Spicy Chicken Nuggets are coming back! Y’all are crazy! That took like a day and a half! WHAT?! We don’t know when yet, gotta figure it out, but soon, and ok, LOSING IT RIGHT NOW THIS IS AMAZING," Wendy's followed up on Monday (May 6). 

Chance took to Instagram to explain that the sacred nuggets would come back on the same day his album drops. "IT'S OFFICIAL SPICY NUGGS RE-RELEASE SAME DAY AS MY #OWBUM," he posted.
