Just call them 'freedom waffles'
The United States has a new World Cup ally against Belgium: Waffle House.
The patriotic message was retweeted over 17,000 times as of this writing. And the Georgia-based restaurant chain did not stop there, continuing to tweet clarifications that they have never served Belgian waffles. It’s also cheering along the American soccer team ahead of its do-or-die match.
Waffle House was not alone in denying any Belgian connection. Beer company Budweiser, which is owned by a company based in Belgium, tweeted a video featuring an American bald eagle and a cheerleader in red, white and blue.
America faces off against Belgium in Brazil at 4 p.m. ET Tuesday.
