In June 2020, Wilson replied to a Domino’s Pizza tweet from 2012 in which the company thanked then-college student and White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany for believing that Domino’s pizza was superior to New York-style pizza.
In his tweet, Wilson wrote, “You just killed your brand.” This later prompted a response from Domino’s Pizza’s official Twitter account, saying “Welp. It’s unfortunate that thanking a customer for a compliment back in 2012 would be viewed as political. Guess that’s 2020 for ya.” According to The Daily Dot, “Domino’s response immediately went viral”; however, it also credited Wilson for not deleting the tweet “despite the unrelenting onslaught of mockery” directed at him.
