- This image was altered. In-N-Out Cups show a bible verse, not “Let’s go Brandon.”
Joining a collection of doctored In-N-Out Burger cups that say things like "Hail Satan," "Epstein did not kill himself" and, more recently, a derogatory dig against President Joe Biden is a new anti-Biden rallying cry.
"Let’s go Brandon," reads the bottom of an In-N-Out cup in a photo being shared on Facebook.
This post was flagged as part of Facebook’s efforts to combat false news and misinformation on its News Feed. (Read more about our partnership with Facebook.)
The chain’s CEO has said in an interview that her uncle put Bible verses on In-N-Out’s cups and wrappers in the early 1990s. In addition to John 3:16 on the soda cup, the milkshake cup features Proverbs 3:5 and the burger wrappers have Revelation 3:20.
As In-N-Out has drawn support from some people for refusing to comply with COVID-19 vaccine mandates in California, misinformation about the chain — and about the slogan "let’s go Brandon" — has spread online. Among other incorrect claims: that CNN reported the chain "is the fast food of white supremacists" and that the Anti-Defamation League classified "Let’s go Brandon" as hate speech.
We rate claims that this "Let’s go Brandon" cup is real False.
