“If you could have a year’s supply of any food, what would it be?”
16-year-old Carter Wilkerson had a dream: it included a year of free chicken nuggets from Wendy’s. That dream has now come true.
“Nugget Kid” has broken Ellen DeGeneres’ record of just over 3.4 million retweets of a single tweet, sent during the 2014 Oscars with her infamous selfie.
He originally Tweeted to Wendy’s wondering how many retweets it would take for them to fulfill his goal. They originally said 18 million, but were impressed enough that yesterday they awarded him his nuggets and will be making a $100,000 donation in Carter’s name to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption in his name.
