Don't boycott our chicken, we're not related to that guy.

That's the gist of what the Perdue Chicken company had to say Saturday after Sen. David Perdue (R-Georgia) mangled the name of Democratic vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris during a rally on behalf of Republican incumbent President Trump.

"The most insidious thing that Chuck Schumer and Joe Biden are trying to perpetuate, and Bernie (Sanders) and Elizabeth (Warren) and Kamala - Kah-ma-la, or Kah-mah-la, or Kamala-mala-mala - I don't know, whatever," Perdue said.

After video of his five-second mini-diatribe went viral on social media, calls went out for a boycott.

The chicken company has been peppering the Twitterverse with individual replies, saying, "David Perdue has no affiliation with our Perdue brand," all signed by someone named "Eliza."

That in itself spawned yet another hashtag, "poor Eliza," reported USA Today.

Perdue's staff has insisted that the name stumbling was unintentional, but such an obviously purposeful, pre-teen style takedown didn't fly any more than one of the company's chickens.
