These days, it seems there are conspiracy theories about anything and everything. From Katy Perry secretly being Jon Bennet Ramsey to Avril Lavigne’s death hoax, there are no shortages for manipulated plots.
Recently, the popular chain restaurant Outback Steakhouse has joined the conspiracy theory list.
While looking at the restaurant’s various locations, the Internet found a common occurrence. In several cities, the Twitter user @EatMyAesthetic has revealed that their locations form a pentagram. For those who are not aware, a pentagram is associated with Satanism. Yes, that is right, some people believe that the family friendly restaurant is trying to reveal that they are secretly Satan worshippers. What?!
Not to worry, we are sure that Outback Steakhouse does not take part in Satanic rituals. However, it is hilarious that multiple areas reveal that the restaurant’s locations form a pentagram. According to the NY Daily News, some other locations with pentagrams include New York, Indiana, Arizona, Georgia, California, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
One user even realized that all of the Outback Steakhouse locations in the United States spell out a hilarious saying. Thanks to the user @TheMeetingTree_ if you connect the restaurant dots, it spells “go watch the Emoji movie”. Clearly, some people have too much time on their hands.
Ever since the original Twitter user posted the theory, the Internet has been abuzz.
Hilariously, Outback Steakhouse responded to the conspiracy theory. They tweeted a picture of the loaded Bloomin’ Onion and wrote “Need directions to delicious? They end here. #loadedbloominonion #noconspiracytheoryneeded”. The restaurant also responded to the original conspiracy tweet with a photoshopped picture of their Bloomin’ Onion over a map of Florida.
Another person also responded to the original tweet and said, “Nah we’re on to you devil restaurant.” The Outback Steakhouse quickly tweeted back that “If the Bloomin’ Onion is evil then we don’t want to be right.” Needless to say, the Down Under location is denying any devil worship and is just trying to push their dish.
