When The USMNT Played Belgium, Twitter Lit Up With Waffle Insults

Just like mentions of Nazis spiked on Twitter when Germany played America and Algeria, the chart above from Redditor honkeyponk shows Americans dissed Belgium by tweeting "waffle" over and over and over.

Waffle tweeting became more common in extra time than during regulation. Of the 24,603 tweets containing "waffle" that were tallied, the majority occur after Belgium scored.
