Watch out, Burger King. Billy Eichner is coming after you and he has the fast food king on his side, McDonald’s. Burger King has released a commercial about the price of their chicken nuggets which features a host on the street, asking questions and yelling at his interviewees, something Eichner is known for on his show, Billy on the Street.
Check out a comparison of the Burger King commercial along with one of Eichner’s videos.
Once Eichner got word of the TV spot, he immediately took to Twitter to express his anger.
@BurgerKing-thanks for stealing my act for ur new commercial!! Except its not as funny & everyone knows u stole it. GET YOUR OWN IDEAS.
But the angry tweeting didn’t stop there. Flip through the slideshow to see a few more of his hilarious and frustrated tweets.
Aside from his many loyal fans, Eichner also has a few famous friends who have his back.
Besides, who needs Burger King when McDonald’s is on your side?

What do you think about the beef between Billy and Burger King? (pun intended)
Also, I recently got addicted to his Billy on the Street videos. If you haven’t seen any, definitely watch his Christmas Carol Ambush with Amy Poehler!
p.s. Sorry for the lack of news. It’s midterm week. That should explain everything!
