New York City and Chicago are in a virtual spat after the Empire State Building’s official X account (formerly Twitter) threw shade at Chicago’s iconic Cloud Gate, also known as the Bean. On the morning of July 3rd, the Empire State Building posted a tweet asking how to fit the Bean into its banner, only to follow up moments later with a picture of a trash can as its new banner. This sparked mixed reactions among users, with some finding humor in the “feud” and others suggesting the Empire State Building might be feeling insecure. The Empire State Building retorted to one such comment with a simple “Wrong,” while Chicago’s Bean has yet to respond, leaving residents of both cities eagerly anticipating its reply.
