Uruguay may have won Tuesday night's Group D match against Italy but it was Luis Suarez's 'bite' off Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini that won the internet.

Though Fifa is still investigating the incident, Twitter users have clearly taken sides. While some have shown vehement support for the Uruguayan striker, others have demanded that he be banned. #BanSuarez was one of the trending hashtags on Twitter for almost 12 hours.

Brands take a bite too

More than the memes, what went viral on Twitter were the digs that big brands like McDonald's, Listerine, Snickers etc took at Suarez.

"We recommend a good swish after grabbing a bite of Italian. #WorldCup #PowerToYourMouth" tweeted mouthwash giant Listerine (@ListerineGlobal).

In Uruguay, the local McDonald's restaurant chain, using the Twitter handle @McDonalds_Uy too was quick to deliver a message to the striker:
