Alright guys, the best fast food item of all time (*it's at least in the top five, don't @ me) could be coming back to Wendy's menu soon and we have Chance the Rapper to thank. Him and anyone who likes Wendy's pinned tweet, to be exact.

It all started back in 2017 when Wendy's pulled Spicy Chicken Nuggets off the menu. It was a dark day for chicken nugget lovers everywhere and people have been asking Wendy's to bring back the nuggs pretty much ever since. On Saturday, March 4, a simple tweet from Chance got the ball rolling.

"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," he wrote.

Whoever runs Wendy's Twitter account saw this tweet and took it to the people in charge.

"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!"

As of this post, less than 24 hours after the tweet was posted, it had 1.6 million likes. The odds are in our favor people!!! If you have not yet liked it, please, for all that is good and holy, go do your part. This girl doesn't even eat meat and she's here for the spicy nuggs' comeback. GO!
