Hooters Sets The Record Straight After Rumors Of The Restaurant Chain Shutting Down

Gentlemen, we are happy to announce Hooters is here to stay.

A tweet claiming the popular restaurant chain known for beer and wings was “shutting down and ‘rebranding’ after new study shows that millennials ‘aren’t that into boobs'” blew up and went viral Wednesday.

The tweet was seen by more than 30 million people.

The claim went so viral that Elon Musk even felt the need to join the conversation.

Hooters will survive.

However, it turns out the tweet is complete nonsense and not true at all. A Hooters spokesman (what a job to hold!) told The Associated Press, “There is no validity to this story. Guests are enjoying this week’s televised sports events at our restaurants across the country and around the world in record numbers, accompanied by craveable menu items, cold beer and iconic hospitality. Our concept is here to stay.”

That’s right, folks. Hooters isn’t going anywhere. There is more than enough cold beer and wings to go around.

When the false rumor spread Wednesday, there was immediate backlash. People simply couldn’t imagine a world without Hooters.

What would men do without cold beer and hot wings on a table in front of them and TVs showing sports around them?

People made it clear Hooters leaving wouldn’t be tolerated, and nobody spearheaded the fight more than noted Hooters enthusiast Nick Adams.

In response to the news, Nick told me the following about the fake rumor and efforts to trash the iconic wings establishment:

As a wildly successful Alpha Male and frequent guest at Hooters, I am proud to have led the fight to save Hooters from the woke beta males and feminists. The left chose to attack Hooters because it is a core pillar of the American male experience. This victory is just one battle in the war on traditional masculinity and American family values. There is NOTHING wrong with dining at Hooters on a weekly basis, and I will take a back seat to no one when it comes to defending one of America’s finest and most philanthropic establishments. As the esteemed founder of Outkick, Clay Travis, once said, “I believe in only two things completely. The First Amendment and boobs.” Hooters is here to stay!

At some point, you have to draw a line in the sand. You have to say enough is enough. You have to let people know there’s a point you simply can’t let them cross.

Losing Hooters would definitely be past the line, and something tells me most OutKick readers agree. If you’re against wings and beer, you probably cheered for the Soviet Union during the Miracle on Ice game.

Does that sound like someone you want to be your friend? Didn’t think so.

Sometimes, it just feels good to win one. Hooters not disappearing is definitely one we’ll chalk up to a victory.

    File that with your comment that Livvy Dunne’s IGs are offering serious gymnastics tips and she just happens to pose seductively in thongs with “come hither” looks.
