This viral ad promising "100% free food" at Chipotle restaurants through March 20 was not issued by Chipotle Mexican Grill, is not valid, and won't be honored at any Chipotle locations. A notice on the company's official Facebook page reads as follows:
There's no such thing as a free lunch - or burrito for that matter. The "repost, tag, and follow for FREE" offer that is floating around the interwebs is A HOAX. Not real. Not from Chipotle.
A March 4 company tweet said the ad is "100% fake. It's a fake offer from a scam account."
All signs indicate that the ad did, in fact, originate as a like-farming scam, of which there are myriad examples circulating every day via every social media platform.
Needless to say, it should not be reposted, shared, or liked.
