Rick Wilson, a prominent Never Trumper and leader of the anti-Trump Lincoln Project, is facing a wave of backlash after effectively attempting to “cancel” Domino’s Pizza for thanking White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany for a compliment over seven years ago.

“You just killed your brand,” Wilson said on social media Monday, digging up a 2012 tweet which showed the pizza company thanking McEnany for a compliment.

Wilson’s failed attempt to demonize the chain led to some taking a closer look at his old social media posts, resulting in the discovery of Instagram photos depicting what appears to be a cooler emblazoned with the Confederate flag — a symbol heavily targeted by the progressive left.

“Don’t worry @dominos, it turns out that the only brand cancelled today is the brand of Rick ‘The South will rise again’ Wilson,” Donald Trump Jr. said of the discovery:

McEnany also followed up with a response of her own, expressing love for both Domino’s and Pizza Hut:
