One Clear Message to the ISIS

Eat This ISIS!
To whoever carried out the bombing in Brussels that killed at least 34 people and injured 140 more last 22 March, the people has only message to you - eat this!

The Burger King ad has now become an unlikely symbol of solidarity against the cowardice of terrorists who prey on innocents and those who cannot fight them back.

The ad, which dates to 2008, is widely shared in social media and shows a fry made to look like a raised middle finger appropriate for those who bombed the Brussels-Zaventem Airport and the Maelbeek metro station.

Surveillance cameras caught the blast as a suspected suicide bomb detonated at 8:00 A.M. local time (3:00 A.M. ET). Footage shows a huge flash and people running for cover.

ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attacks, according to the Amaq Agency which is known to be affiliated with the terrorist group.

Fries are a national symbol in Belgium, which is likely why the Burger King ad has resurfaced and gained traction online since the attacks.
