This US steakhouse is at the centre of a heated debate because we all love a good conspiracy theory

Even if there is no truth in it.

An Australian-themed American restaurant chain has inadvertently become the focus of a hilarious internet conspiracy theory.

An *investigation* by Twitter user @eatmyaesthetics into the Outback Steakhouse’s locations has people asking all kinds of questions about the *real* intentions of the popular steakhouse.

The layout of the restaurant chain in several cities appears to bear an uncanny resemblance to a pentagram.

In case you are wondering, a pentagram is a symbol used in Wiccan practice and in ancient cultures. Many cultures also associate the star with evil and Satan.

And of course, the internet needs answers.

The restaurant soon joined in on the humour…

But let’s be honest, a restaurant chain with almost 1,000 locations in 23 countries is bound to form some sort of a shape when you connect the venues on a map.

And to be fair, @eatmyaesthetics appears to have rehashed an old internet meme.

But of course, that won’t stop us from looking for meaning in patterns when there are none.
