This Popeyes chicken sandwich craze has got to STOP!
A Tennessee man has decided to sue Popeyes over the “countless time wasted” for waiting in line for their infamous chicken sandwich.
Also, he said the sold-out Popeyes chicken sandwich has caused his depression!
According to The Blast, Craig Barr from Tennessee, claims Popeyes presented “false advertising, deceptive business practices by entity to public.”
He said he was scammed out of $25 by a man claiming to be a Popeyes employee who said he was selling sandwiches behind a restaurant.
Once he gave the scammer the money, he never saw him again, Barr said.
He also claimed he blew out a tire and damaged a rim driving from one Popeyes to another and was humiliated when his friends laughed at his ordeal.
“[He] can’t get happy; I have this sandwich on my mind. I can’t think straight,” Craig Barr told the Chattanooga Times Free Press on Thursday. “It just consumes you.”
Barr said many Popeyes locations turned him away after their supply sold out. So, he claims the fast-food chain overhyped the item and purposefully lowered quantity to increase demand.
And speaking of demand, he’s demanding $5,000.
“It’s totally deceptive. Who runs out of chicken? It’s a big fiasco,” he told the paper.
“Someone has to stand up to Big Corporate. Everyone is captivated by these sandwiches.”
Popeyes is currently sold out of their chicken sandwiches while battling out with Chick-fil-A on who has the best product.
When one North Carolina location ran out of chicken, a Chick-fil-A employee across the street handed out the competitor’s sandwiches to Popeyes workers.
