Taylor Swift fans are up-in-arms over a sarcastic tweet Burger King directed at the iconic pop star. The controversial post was in response to a fan's question asking what the fast-food chain's favorite Taylor swift song was.

"The one about her ex," Burger King replied in a tweet that has since been deleted, reported Fox News.

It was obviously the wrong answer. Fans slammed the franchise for its answer, which many said was "slut shaming," and soon #BurgerKingIsOverParty was trending.

One Swifty tweeted:

"the way i love burger king but they're cancelled now i'm never eating anything by them again and that's on slutshaming taylor #burgerkingisoverparty"

Another wrote

"#BurgerKingIsOverParty maybe if yall didnt slvtshameTaylor"

A third fan tweeted:

"no more slutshaming and hating on Taylor anymore. move on and serve better burgers #burgerkingisoverparty"

Another Swifty chimed in:

"@BurgerKing it's not 2012, sexism against Taylor Swift isn't funny. your social media person needs to be fired. #burgerkingisoverparty."

Burger King shrugged the ordeal off, writing in a tweet, referencing Taylor Swift's hit single, "Shake It Off":

"let's shake it off. celebrate #BurgerKingIsOverParty with the $3 shake + fries deal in the app."

The topic of sexism is a sensitive one for Taylor Swift, who was inappropriately groped by Ex-DJ David Mueller in 2013. A legal battle ensued.

Mueller first charged in a lawsuit, Swift falsely accused him of touching her inappropriately during a photo he took with her and his girlfriend before Swift's 2013 concert at the Pepsi Center in Denver, The Daily Beast reported.

Mueller charged that Swift pressured the country radio station he worked for, KYGO, to fire him from his $150,000 disc jockey job.

Swift, who said the groping left her "shocked and distressed," then countersued for a single dollar and, in 2017 she won the case.
