It started innocently enough.
A Twitter user named Q was impressed with the way Baltimore restaurant Jimmy's Famous Seafood was Twitter clowning on PETA, so he called for them to open up a location in Chicago.
Just finished this red-eye flight from Seattle to Chicago. I was sleepy as hell until I ran across @JimmysSeafood repeatedly slaughtering @peta— Q (@Kwenten75) August 26, 2018
I'm wide awake now. #OpenUpShopInChicago
The eatery said they would only do that if basketball legend Michael Jordan came back.
If MJ comes out of retirement to play for y’all again, we’ll come along as part of the package, too.— Jimmy's Famous Seafood (@JimmysSeafood) August 26, 2018
Q then sold out the Chicago Bull's current shooting guard Zach LaVine -- who signed a questionable 4-year $78 million contract this offseason -- by mentioning him.
How about Zach LaVine instead?— Q (@Kwenten75) August 26, 2018
Mike is 50 something and probably 250 #nothanks
The seafood restaurant was quick with the shade.
How about you give us the 78 mil you wasted on LaVine, and we give you free crab cakes for life?— Jimmy's Famous Seafood (@JimmysSeafood) August 26, 2018
LaVine tried to get involved.
I’m allergic to shellfish anyway 🤷🏽♂️— Zach LaVine (@ZachLaVine) August 26, 2018
But that only made things worse, as whoever runs Jimmy's social media has seen LaVine play.

Well, we guess LaVine still has 78 million reasons not to care.
