A US man has joked he's feeling "sad" after a burger joint employee accidentally gave him a ticket identifying him as the customer with the "ugly sweater". 

Daniel Graham, a musician who performs under the stage name 'Zinfandel Zaddy', posted the hilarious pictures to his Twitter account.

"It was NOT MY PLEASURE TO EAT CHIC FIL A TODAY [sic]," Graham captioned the post, which included an image of him giving the finger in the offending sweater. 

Chick-fil-A is a US-based fast food outlet that specialises in chicken burgers. 

Graham's tweet has racked up over 16,000 shares and almost 150,000 likes. 

However, after several outlets reported he was "outraged" by the ticket, Graham set the record straight with a follow-up tweet. 

"I'm not mad but I am sad and I will take reparations in free chicken sandwiches," he added. 

Commenters jumped onto the post to voice their support, with many sharing images of their own 'ugly' sweaters. 

"I am wearing this exact sweater," replied one woman.

"Yo, where did you get this sweater? I need one" another follower asked. 

And as a final nail in Chick-fil-A's coffin, someone shared a receipt from competing fast food outlet Popeyes, which identified them as the customer with "the cool jacket". 

"Come to Popeyes bro they know how to treat kings like us," he captioned the reply. 

Chick-fil-A has not yet responded to the incident.
