Outback Steakhouse Accused As The Illuminati By Wacky Conspiracy Theory

Outback Steakhouse would like you all to know that NO, they’re not an organization that controls the entire way the world functions and exists.

Over the past week, conspiracy theories have been popping up on the Internet that Outback Steakhouse may actually be the Illuminati, a theorized group of people that apparently have control over the entire planet.

The theory began when a Twitter user posted multiple pictures showing Outback Steakhouse locations in various areas popping up in the shape of pentagrams, a star symbol that’s apparently indicative of work by the Illuminati.

The tweet quickly went insanely viral, generating over 100,000 retweets over the weekend. Some of these were more people adding on to the theory with more pentagram diagrams that are apparently evidence that Outback Steakhouse is actually the Illuminati:

Outback Steakhouse has denied the conspiracy theory in a statement made to the Daily Dot, saying they had “no plans other than to bring bold steaks and Bloomin’ Onions” to the people. They also jokingly posted a tweet in reply to all of the Illuminati theories going around:

At least they know how to have fun when accused of controlling the entire planet.

For those of you who aren’t convinced that Outback Steakhouse isn’t the Illuminati, though, some food for thought: if the pentagrams are symbols of the Illuminati’s work, doesn’t this all just mean that the Illuminati controls Outback Steakhouse the way it controls all of us?

Chew on THAT, crazy conspiracy theorists.
