Taco Bell is giving SOME of us something smile about. The fast food franchise announced on Sunday it will be giving away a free Doritos Locos taco through its drive-thru at participating locations all day March 31.

The company wrote in part, “Now more than ever, we could all use a free Doritos Locos Tacos.”

Several people fired back after the announcement because of social distancing and sel- quarantine measures in place during COVID-19. One Twitter user wrote,

“Aren’t we supposed to be encouraging ppl to stay home - not go out & about either spreading or contracting #Covid_19? #NotDyingForATaco"

The reaction wasn’t all negative. Another Twitter user wrote in part,

“When life hands you lemons ... make tacos. Well done, @tacobell #TacoTuesday"

Fan of the idea or not, you can receive a free seasoned beef Doritos Locos Taco through the drive-thru. No purchase is necessary. Limit one per person.
