Wendy's

We're Being Extorted

Over Rotten Tomatoes!

Something's rotten in Wendy's ... so claims an evil-doer who is allegedly trying to extort the fast food chain by threatening to release to TMZ video of Wendy's employees prepping rotten tomatoes!

We got a letter from Wendy's legal people ... alerting us of an anonymous individual who is trying to extort a 6-figure sum in return for burying the footage of the allegedly horrendous heirlooms.

According to the letter we got, "The authenticity of the video is in doubt."  Interesting language ... it doesn't say it ain't true -- it's just in doubt.

We haven't been contacted by anyone looking to sell the video  .... but we're on the Hunt's!

Is there a celebrity involved in this rotten story somehow? Otherwise I miss the point.

I've gotten Chili from my local Wendy's that tasted rotten, and I know someone that got a sandwich with a roach on it at the same location.. Needless to say I refuse to eat there food anymore.

Those two ruffian dudes, Del and Monte are behind the scheme...or, maybe that German guy, Heinz.

Shocked that Wendy's might have more rotten tomatoes than an Adam Sandler film.

This is true I worked at Wendys for 4 years and they used rotten tomatoes with mold growing on them all the time, they just told us to cut off the mold and slice them to serve. We were always told not to waste anything!

There's a problem here    

I suppose this is your story to deflect from your sweetheart Kim and her albatross Kanye Kardashian doing a photo op at Wendy's in the last day or two? Sans their spawn, of course.

I wouldn't doubt it. My sister and I got food poisoning from their tomatoes last summer.
