A man is getting shredded over a tweet about cheese.

However, their first night back on the town seemed to have missed the mark for them when he continued on to write, “Waiting for shredded cheese as it’s the only way [my wife] can eat fajitas. We’ve asked 4 people, going on 18 minutes now.”
The tweet ended with a curt, “We gotta quit blaming COVID19 for crappy service,” along with a photo of his wife leaning against a wall looking downcast in front of a table of food.
The cheesy complaint got some backlash on Twitter, where it had been retweeted several times. Those on the social media platform defended the staff and felt the grievance was unfounded. Most responded with snarky takes on the man’s phrasing, seeming to take issue with his claim that his wife can't eat fajitas without cheese.
However, not everyone was a critic about his wife’s dairy needs, with some defending the particular customer and her order.
