A tweet by user @corihealey is going viral, and for good reason. Not only is it a lesson in relationship red flags, it’s also one in how not to cook a chicken. Mainly, don’t not season it. Or, go at least one step further than just throwing some breasts straight from the packaging onto a baking pan, no parchment paper or aluminum foil or nothing.
It’s offensive, is what it is. And the Baltimore resident decided to share her woes with all of Twitter by tweeting out the following picture, and captioning it “Y’all wanna get upset by the lack of seasoning on my boyfriends roommates chicken with me.”

Why yes, of course Twitter did! Getting upset about other people’s life choices is what the platform is best at (though in this case, it’s deserved).
The Atlantic staff writer—yes, a real journalist—Jemele Hill advocated for immediate deportation.
No offense, but your boyfriend’s roommate gotta be deported IMME-JUT-LY. https://t.co/bQwPnCfnSr

People expressed legitimate sadness at this wasted poultry life.

“Is this even legal?” we wondered.

As was the discomfort:
And the confusion.
I’m almost impressed that it looks both cooked AND raw somehow

Y’all might as well had just cooked some water and threw in on a plate https://t.co/RTJyM1qWzW

Dictionary.com Twitter chimed in with some customary sass:
Chicken out. To refrain from doing something because of fear or cowardice.

No, you’re not the only one. I too am highly upset over this fact.
Am i the only one just as upset they didn’t put some aluminum foil under it so it doesn’t ruin the pan? https://t.co/fRHJtf0gUG

VERY, VERY UPSET.
This isn’t a “lack of seasoning,” it’s a damn absence of seasoning. Also who puts chicken DIRECTLY on a baking sheet?! Where’s the foil?! https://t.co/CQkj7l6PcR

People who cook straight on the pan with no foil are serial killers https://t.co/MCjGwNpbuH

Unlike the chicken, the burns on this failed “dish” were endless and creative.
