‘Wonder Woman’ Lynda Carter says ‘I trained at Waffle House’ after viral brawl video
Wonder Woman is weighing in on a viral video of a wild Waffle House brawl.
Lynda Carter — who played the sexy superhero in the 1970s CBS series — took to Twitter Thursday after footage of the fast-food fracas started circulating on social media.
The chair-raising clip — captured inside an Austin, Texas, Waffle House and uploaded Dec. 22 — has clocked up more than 1.3 million views and shows one of the restaurant’s female employees fending off a seat that is hurled in her direction.
The feisty female holds her own against a band of unruly patrons as she’s violently attacked — and even throws some punches in the pile-on.
In her hilarious response tweet, Carter shared footage from an old episode of “Wonder Woman” that showed her character destroying a wooden chair, slamming her fist through its wooden bottom.
“I trained at Waffle House,” Carter, 71, quipped.
The actress’ humorous hot take on the Waffle House high jinx was beloved by Twitter users, many of whom responded to her tweet.
“You are a gift to the universe, one responded.
“This might be the best celebrity comment of all time! Salute, ma’am!” another cheered.
“I can’t tell you how much I hope this is really you tweeting and not staff,” a third declared. “I’ve always adored you, but this would be icing on the cake.”
WARNING: Video contains graphic language
Expletive-filled video of the Waffle House fight was first shared last Thursday, with the 2-minute clip showing several hungry patrons attacking employees after allegedly becoming angered by slow service.
“The craziest Waffle House fight in Austin TX straight up WWE match,” Twitter user @rbaylor_74 wrote beneath the viral clip.
However, while the footage was only shared last week, it was actually captured by the user in September 2021. It’s unclear if any arrests were made following the fast-food franchise fight.
However, there have been numerous reports of arrests following violent incidents inside Waffle House restaurants across the country.
On Sunday, police were called to a Christmas Day brawl at one of the outlets in Madison, Georgia.
Two people were cuffed by cops following the incident, which reportedly involved an incorrect order.
