Texas Sized Food Fight in Lone Star State Whataburger Goes Viral

Posted: Updated:

They say everything's bigger in Texas and that proved to be the case when rival high school students started a massive food fight in a local Whataburger.

There will likely be little to no repercussions for the students involved in the Saturday night incident. The fast food chain isn't pressing charges. This keeps the school district from punishing those responsible.

Students from both Brandeis and O'Connor High School who were involved in the food fight said they're embarrassed by the negative attention they're receiving.

When students returned to class Monday the video was a major topic of conversation after a short clip of Saturday's massive food fight at a north side Whataburger went viral.

Students from both schools now regret the actions of their classmates.

Jacob Guajardo, a Brandeis High School junior, said "I've heard what some people who work there say and they're beyond furious about it."

Jonah Brickley, an O'Connor High School senior, said "it's just sad how the way we handled it and everyone feels bad about it and it shouldn't have happened like that."

The food fight came after an emotional 12 to 10 win for Brandeis over their rival O'Connor. The match-up stirred emotions on both sides but students said they never saw this coming.

Since the incident the shock and amusement from Saturday's fight has turned into worry that disciplinary and possibly criminal action was coming.

However, Whataburger announced Monday that it wasn't pressing charges, which ties the hands of school officials as there is very little the district can do to access the video.

Although it appears students are practically getting off scott-free, a spokesman for the district said if Whataburger changes it' minds they have the support of the schools.

In a statement released by Whataburger, officials make it clear that they're ready to move-on.

"Students from both schools, whether they were involved or not, have come to our restaurant and apologized, and we greatly appreciate the outpouring of support. The Whataburger team will continue to welcome Brandeis and O'Connor students at our restaurants and we're also committed to continuing the partnership and support of both high schools," said the burger joint.
