Man suing Buffalo Wild Wings says company doesn’t ‘give a s–t’ about his boneless wings complaint
2023/07/30

He refuses to chicken out.

The man who claims that the boneless wings at Buffalo Wild Wings are nothing more than chicken nuggets asked a judge not to throw out his class-action lawsuit because it would only fuel the restaurant's disrepect for poultry lovers.

Aimen Halim's lawsuit made headlines across the nation since it was filed last March, with Buffalo Wild Wings appearing to mock his claims on social media.

"'We don't give a s—,'" the company said in an Instagram post in May, explaining: "Buffalo Wild Wings on when people say boneless wings aren't wings."

The restaurant chain then asked the US District Court for the Northern District of Illinois to dismiss the case.

Halim filed a response on Friday slamming the company for its mockery of his concerns, claiming that the court should punish them by allowing his lawsuit to carry on, Insider reports.

"Instead, BWW decided to go low, issuing a brazen official response: 'We don't give a s—.,'" the lawsuit states. "Such hubris should not be rewarded, especially when BWW's motive is quite simple: profits."

Aimen, of Chicago, filed a lawsuit against Buffalo Wild Wings in March over claims of "false and deceptive marketing and advertising" when it came to their boneless wings, which he said are derived from chicken breast and not chicken wing meat.

"Indeed, the Products are more akin, in composition, to a chicken nugget rather than a chicken wing," the document reads.

As reparations for the alleged chicken dupe, the suit demands a jury trial, an unspecified amount of punitive damages, lawyer fees and any other fines as determined by the judge, per court documents.

Buffalo Wild Wings has filed for the lawsuit to be dismissed, and along with its post appearing to mock Aimen's claims directly, the company also put out additional tweets poking fun at the lawsuit.

"It's true. Our boneless wings are all white meat chicken. Our hamburgers contain no ham. Our buffalo wings are 0% buffalo," the company wrote.

Buffalo Wild Wings did not immediately respond to The Post's request for comment.

Halim's complaints aren't solely directed at the restaurant, as he has a history of suing companies over alleged false marketing.

The plaintiff's prior suits have involved a case claiming that the "natural" label on Tom's of Maine Wicked Fresh Mouthwash and the "high in fiber" label on Kind granola are all inaccurate.

He also claimed that Hefty misled customers by labeling its bags "recyclable" when that wasn't the case — a suit that was dismissed in August.
