Dang. The Internet is a bad place full of thirsty people. On Thursday, the Internet discovered Shawn Oakman, a 6-foot-9, 280-pound Baylor DE who looks like a created player from Breaking Madden.

This is a nuanced joke, but let's try to understand it.
I think it's that Chipotle, a popular fast-food burrito restaurant, normally charges more for guacamole. In this case, the Twitter user imagines Shawn Oakman — remember, all 280 pounds of him — insisting he not be charged extra. Given Oakman's stature, the Chipotle employee has no choice but to agree.
The joke shows up endlessly on Twitter, with the phrasing or even the situation slightly transformed.
