Tenn. man suing Popeyes for not having chicken sandwich

Tenn. man suing Popeyes for not having chicken sandwich

Hungry chicken fans around the country left Popeye's restaurants empty-handed this week when the chain sold out of its new sandwiches.

Popeyes did not immediately respond to ABC News' request for comment in response to the suit, but previously told ABC News in a statement: "The demand for the new Chicken Sandwich in the first few weeks following launch far exceeded our very optimistic expectations".

Additionally, Barr said he was hustled out of $25 by a man who posted a Craigslist ad claiming he could get the sandwiches, suffered rim and tire damage while driving to various Popeyes locations, and was embarrassment because his friends laughed at his apparently overwhelming desire for the fast food offering.

So there you have it.

"I can't get happy; I have this sandwich on my mind".

"It's totally deceptive. Who runs out of chicken?"

The civil summons was filed in Hamilton County court. It's a big fiasco. "I can't think straight", he told the Times Free Press on Thursday. As such, folks all around the nation have been making their way to Popeyes for the infamous chicken sandwich. "Someone has to stand up to big corporate", he said.

"We had the entire nation really excited about the Popeyes" chicken sandwich and as a result we ran out much sooner than we anticipated'.

The new Popeyes menu item gained widespread popularity after a feud with Wendy's over social media about which company had the best sandwich. "They've got everyone gassed up on them".

Jené Walker and her coworker were headed to a nearby Popeyes in North Carolina to try the sandwich when they saw a Chick-fil-A worker handing out Chick-fil-A sandwiches to Popeyes employees.

"When we asked him what he was doing over there at Popeyes he said he was just bringing over some sandwiches since he knew they were sold out".
