Barçagate: KFC spring to Bartomeu's defence
The fast food chain's Spanish Twitter account, famous for its spiky content, availed of the Barçagate scandal to 'defend' Josep Maria Bartomeu.
After former FC Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu spent the night in police detention at the Les Corts station, the Spanish social media outlet for fast food giants KFC took the opportunity to add fuel to the fire with a caustic post of their own.
With a photo-shopped picture of Bartomeu akin to that of Col. Sanders (the founder of the fast food chain), the post featured the message: "I don't know what you are talking about officer, I work at KFC".

The original post was quickly followed by another photo shopped picture, this time featuring a beaming Lionel Messi smirking at the original post on a computer.
Both posts gained a considerable amount of retweets/likes with many comments wondering how the account can 'sail so close to the wind'.
The KFC (Spain) Twitter account is no stranger to courting controversy and in recent weeks has challenged the likes of Campofio (Spanish multi international food group) or famous Spanish You Tuber Dallas Review. on the social media platform.
