Hell hath no fury like fast-food fans when their favorite menu items get discontinued. Case in point: McDonald's fans freaking out and professing their undying love for the elusive McRib. And now today, Wendy's is in the crosshairs of rampage after the chain quietly cut spicy chicken nuggets from its menu nationally.
As you can expect, the salty commentary on Twitter has been nothing short of a fierce uproar. While some devoted Wendy's customers are threatening to boycott the brand altogether, others are simply stating their disappointment and dismay at the fast-foods ill-advised choice. Check it out:

Yesterday, Food Beast did some digging into the odd situation but only received a vague response-sans details of which cities, if any, still serve the fiery nuggs-from a brand representative:
"Wendy's Spicy Chicken Nuggets are available in select cities across the country, and the traditional Chicken Nuggets are still available at all Wendy's restaurants. Customers who are fans of Spicy Chicken Nuggets can opt for our Spicy Chicken Sandwich. Wendy's also recently added an Asiago Ranch Chicken Club that can be ordered Grilled, Spicy or Homestyle.
Sorry, Wendy's, but we're not sure that's gonna cut it.
