Chipotle Eviscerates Kenny Pickett, Steelers Fan in Now-Deleted Post

Team USA beat Sweden 6-2 to capture the gold medal in the World Juniors on Friday. Following the exciting victory, one of the most popular food chains in America celebrated on social media.

Chipotle, who reportedly awarded players and staff free burritos for a year after winning gold, re-shared International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) post crowing Team USA as champions with the caption, “Can't spell celebrate without ate."

The chain received numerous responses from fans on their post. Among the responses came from the account ”Picketts Muse"—a clear fan of Steelers quarterback Kenny Pickett—who received some unexpected shade thrown their way.

"Can't spell Pickett without bust,” responded Scott from Chipotle.

Chipotle deleted the post shortly afterwards.

While Steelers fans were furious with Chipotle, much of social media cheered the response.
