Comedian sick of being tagged in 's****y reviews' about boozer because his name sounds like Wetherspoons

If you thought a chap called John Lewis consistently being mistaken for a department store was bad, then here comes the next instalment, complaining to a man named JD Witherspoon about pub chain JD Wetherspoons.
As if we hadn't learned our lesson from the whole John Lewis incident, now dissatisfied Wetherspoon customers are taking to Twitter and bothering a US comedian named JD Witherspoon.
Even the most cursory of glances at his profile ought to tell you he's a man and not a chain of pubs and yet people persist in bringing their problems with the budget pub chain to him.
Being a comedian, he's done the only logical thing and come up with a routine about it, because if you get hordes of people mistaking you for several hundred pubs you've got to find a way to laugh at it.
He said: "There's a pub in the UK called JD Wetherspoon, so it's the same name as mine except it's off by like one letter, so it's an 'e' instead of an 'i'.
"And they have like the worst f**king reviews ever, but they have no social media presence, they deleted that at like s**t review number 208.
"So guess who has a Twitter account that gets f**king bombarded by dumbass British people every other day. They'll find me on Twitter, see my f**king face in my Twitter profile and be like 'all right, let's get into this'."
Witherspoon has also had to do plenty of responding to a plethora of people on Twitter who keep bugging him to explain to them that he's not a pub.
We've done a bit of digging and there's tweets from over a decade ago tagging him to moan about their trip to Spoons, so please leave him be because he's definitely had enough of it to last a lifetime.
Spoons is one of the most popular pub chains for Brits to quench their thirst and quaff a pint but when it comes time to make a complaint far too many are picking on the poor bloke with a similar sounding name.
It might be simpler for him to just change his name, but JD Witherspoon is his name and it's all the people moaning at him who are wrong, so why should he budge now?
At this point we're not sure if it wouldn't just be easier to give him control of Spoons so he actually does have official responsibility for dealing with people's gripes and grumbles.
His name is practically on the door and enough people who've frequented the pub chain seemingly can't tell the difference anyway.
Once more for clarity, if you're hopping on social media to complain about Wetherspoons and tagging the account @jdwitherspoon, then you're doing it wrong, stop it.
The pub chain isn't actually on social media so if you're taking to Twitter to complain about them you're definitely not going to have your issue resolved.
