Such an event calls for a boycott of that specific type of gridded breakfast pastry, the American-style waffle chain has trumpeted on social media.
Indeed, a rep confirmed to TMZ (because World Cup news is every patriotic American’s gossip these days, right?) that it wants Americans to boycott Belgium.
“We support a boycott on Belgian Waffles,” the rep confirms. “We support America. We don’t support Belgian Waffles.”
