After Kim Kardashian released recordings of a conversation Taylor Swift had with Kanye West, Denny’s quickly got in on the viral story by parodying Swift’s response to the situation.
In the recordings, posted via a series of videos on Snapchat, West talks to Swift about her namedrop in his then upcoming song "Famous." She approved her mention in the song during the call. However, once the song was released, Swift had an issue with a lyric that calls her a "bitch."
On Sunday night, Taylor tweeted out a response to Kardashian’s leak.

Denny’s quickly capitalized on the situation, posting a tweet on Monday parodying Swift’s response, while also promoting the chain’s all-day breakfast.

At press time, Denny’s tweet had been retweeted nearly 10,000 times and favorited over 17,000 times.
Denny’s risked angering Swift’s squad by making fun of the artist. But the tweet has garnered largely positive sentiment from Twitter users for the brand.
