Pizza Hut troll Leeds with iconic Come Dine With Me put down as they continue bizarre feud after promotion

0

PIZZA HUT have hit back at Leeds with a reference to an iconic Come Dine With Me moment – in what is perhaps the most bizarre Twitter feud of the summer.

The online aggro between the restaurant and newly-promoted football club dates all the back to last January, when the pizza chain make a cheeky jibe about Marcelo Biesla’s Spygate.

Dear lord, what a sad little life, Leeds. You ruined our tweet completely so you could have the promotion and I hope now you can spend it on lessons in grace and decorum.
So Bielsa. Take your binoculars and get off our property. https://t.co/hlGj2WLrwf

Pizza Hut’s account tweeted: “Hi @LUFC, we’ve just seen a suspicious looking man peering through our chef’s window. Can you let us know if you’re planning to put Pizza on the menu in the club canteen?”

Leeds’ riposte at the time read: “Prefer @dominos thanks! They don’t take a week to deliver a tweet.”

And Pizza Hut wrote: “Bit rich coming from a club that hasn’t delivered since 1992…”

The dust then settled down and all seemed to be fair in the love and war of corporate Twitter banter.

However, the Whites hadn’t forgotten.

Fast forward to July 2020 and the club had indeed delivered, their prize being the Championship trophy and a long-awaited return to the Premier League.

Naturally, there were scores to be settled and the club posted a picture of their celebrations to the restaurant’s account, quote tweeting the 17-month old dig.

And so Pizza Hut came back with the social media favourite Come Dine With me quote, once again referencing Spygate.

They posted: “Dear lord, what a sad little life, Leeds. You ruined our tweet completely so you could have the promotion and I hope now you can spend it on lessons in grace and decorum. So Bielsa. Take your binoculars and get off our property.”

For those not fully clued up on the joke, it harked back to one of daytime tele’s greatest strops when the night’s host, Peter, lost the cookery show’s £1,000 prize to rival Jane in 2016.

Pizza Hut then added: “Have to say… Incredible season from a great club. Welcome back to the big one.”

However the damage was done and competitors began gleefully scooping up the discontented Elland Road faithful.

Twitter user Jilly wrote: “Always found @PizzaExpress a much more enjoyable dining experience.”

To which the rival pizza chain replied: “Cheers Jilly. Enjoy our Dough Balls and your team’s Premier League football next season!”
