Most Americans know relatively little about Belgium, but they know they want the US soccer team to beat the Belgians in the World Cup round of 16 on Tuesday.

So, of course, they lashed out at waffles (notwithstanding the difference between the American and Belgian varieties).

(The Waffle House tweet had been retweeted more than 13,000 times as of Tuesday morning, and the popular chain called for a full-on boycott of Belgian waffles for the day).
