Chicken salad that was sent to Whole Foods grocery store locations in three northeastern states had to be recalled earlier this month, because the packages actually contained tuna.

You know who heard about that and sent out a savage tweet in response? Jessica Simpson, of course.

It’s a simple tweet, yet so very effective—a Twitter clapback that’s been brewing since 2003 when this happened on her Newlyweds show with then-husband Nick Lachey.

Since her confusion 14 years ago, Simpson has maintained a sense of humor about one of her most embarrassing TV moments. And with this tweet, Simpson has reached the pinnacle of making chicken salad out of Chicken of the Sea.
