Man sues Popeyes over sold-out chicken sandwich: ‘I can’t get happy’

Popeyes sold out of a new chicken sandwich after posts about it went viral online

A man in Tennessee is threatening to sue the popular restaurant chain Popeyes after he spent "countless driving time" and lost money to a scammer trying to obtain one of its sold-out chicken sandwiches.

He went on to describe his alleged hardships: "countless time wasted driving to and from Popeyes. No chicken sandwich. Was told to come back this day- still no sandwich".

Cil said: 'We've had people lining-up. before the restaurant opens to be able to get the chicken sandwich.

Tennessee man Craig Barr wrote in a summons filed on Wednesday that he was suing Popeyes for "false advertising, [and] deceptive business practices by entity to public".

The Popeyes chicken sandwich craze has been closely documented by news outlets and discussed on social media since its debut.

The Popeyes Chicken Sandwich is not only the must-have meal, but it's apparently desired the same way you'd have to get Nikes or Adidas.

Trump sparks confusion before doubling down on China tariffs
When asked if he was rethinking his decision to escalate the trade war, Trump acknowledged having second thoughts. China's economy is hurting as a result, but so too are US consumers and many sectors in the American economy.

The Chattanooga Times Free Press reported that a man matching the description Barr outlined had purchased something from that Popeyes restaurant and left out the front door. "That's weird you're over here with a Chick-fil-A bag at Popeyes.' Just the timing was weird", recalled Walker. Many stores have already sold out. He is asking for $5,000 in damages. "Who runs out of chicken?"

Popeyes' initial crispy chicken sandwich announcement was followed by a tweet from Chick-fil-A a few days later, claiming that its own chicken sandwich was the "original", to which Popeyes responded: "Y'all good?" He'll be in court on October 28. "It's a big fiasco", he told the paper.

"Someone has to stand up to big corporate", he said, according to the paper.

Along with suppliers, Popeyes said they are "working tirelessly to bring the new sandwich back to guests as soon as possible".

Popeyes has declined to comment on the lawsuit.
