It was "I Love You Sabado" on Twitter Saturday as Jollibee trended with support from fans who refuse to define the Philippines' largest fastfood operator based on a viral deep fried towel that masqueraded as Chickenjoy.

For kids of the 90s, "I Love You Sabado" is the commercial that had them asking their parents to bring them to Jollibee on Saturday mornings for spaghetti, burgers and of course -- Chickenjoy, the star of its menu.

Proud crew members, both past and present, posted selfies in uniform, declaring their support for Jollibee, who had a tough week.
