The Internet is not happy with Red Lobster.

Beyoncé dropped "Formation" on Saturday, and the brand new song included a reference to the seafood restaurant chain. "When he f**k me good, I take his ass to Red Lobster, cause I slay," she croons on the track.

Not only did "Formation" quickly became a trending topic on Twitter, it also left people anxiously awaiting for a response from Red Lobster. They would have to have an amazing response, right? Right?!

Fast forward approximately eight hours later, when the chain's official Twitter account finally responded with a message that was, according to social media, a major flop.

"Cheddar Bey Biscuits" has a nice ring to it, don't you think?" the tweet read.

Disappointed Beyoncé fans immediately responded, writing things like, "You missed such an opportunity here, @redlobster. You could have done so much more," "Fire ur agency. Then fire everyone who hired them," and "Social media strategy: if this tweet was done during the #Formation firestorm, it'd get an okay. Hrs later? Nah."

Many called out Red Lobster's super late and uncreative response with hilarious photos and gifs.

But our favorite was hands down this photo of a very unimpressed Blu Ivy Carter -- who makes a cameo in her mama's "Formation" music video -- and her father, Jay Z.

It's OK, Red Lobster. We can't all be Oreo.

Talk about a perfect social media response -- during the 2013 Super Bowl, no less!

One thing the Beyhive can look forward to, however, is the 34-year-old singer's highly-anticipated Pepsi Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show with Coldplay. As ET exclusively reported, Beyoncé will be performing her catchy new single for the first time ever when she takes the stage at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California, on Sunday. The big game between the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers airs on CBS at 6:30 p.m ET/3:30 pm PT.
