In an Instagram debut like no other, Jeremy Jordan rocked Chipotle’s world.

The Supergirl star has leveled claims at the Mexican-inspired eatery that his last Chipotle meal sent him to the hospital and—in the star’s own words—nearly killed him. However, the evidence for Jordan’s claim has been scant, and Chipotle is pushing back.
