Alex Morgan left alone

The famous fast-food chain, Wendy’s, took over Twitter on #NationalRoastDay with their ‘roast me’ challenge. In light-hearted banter, they roasted many who requested for the same. However, Alex Morgan escaped the famous roast by Wendy’s. Morgan responded to their challenge by replying ‘Roast me, redhead’. However, Wendy’s delivered an epic response to Morgan, showcasing their sense of respect for the talented soccer player.

“We just can’t, Alex,” they said.

The incredible soccer player is one of the most respected superstars out there. Thus, Wendy’s refrained from roasting the icon. Out of all the roasts ushered to people, she got the one with the least trouble.

Currently, Morgan is preparing herself for the new campaign to start. Bringing a trophy to her hometown club is on her agenda and being in San Diego may help her cause.
