Jessica Simpson couldn't help but troll herself 20 years after she famously confused tuna and chicken while eating a bowl of Chicken of the Sea on television.

"Are these wings pig or chicken?" the 42-year-old blonde beauty captioned a photo of herself standing in front of a mural, which says, "Spread your wings," while in Nashville, Tenn.

This is hardly the first time the singer — who shares Maxwell Drew, 11, Ace Knute, 9, and Birdie Mae, 4, with husband Eric Johnson — addressed her previous comments, which she made while on the MTV series Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica.

In 2016, the "With You" songstress, who was previously married to Nick Lachey, posted a throwback meme in which she referred to the question, "Is this chicken that I have, or is this fish?"

She also added the hashtag, writing, "#Chickenofthesea."

“I know it’s tuna, but it says chicken by the sea,” she continued. “Is that stupid? What is it called — chicken by the sea or in the sea?”

Lachey was confused at what Simpson was trying to say. “Chicken of the Sea is the brand,” he said. “You know, ’cause a lot of people eat tuna, just like a lot of people eat chicken. Chicken of the Sea.”

“Oh….” Simpson replied. “Oh, I understand now. I read it wrong.”

Though Simpson and Lachey later divorced in 2006, she doesn't regret opening up her home to her fans back in the day.

"I am blessed that I did have that show," she told Entertainment Tonight in 2004. "It allowed people to come into my life, and to know me as a person, and I owe a lot of my support — my fans came from that because people could relate to me."
