A distraught Tennessee man has sued fast-food chain Popeyes, for running out of its popular chicken sandwiches which unexpectedly became an online sensation in the last few weeks.
Craig Barr accused Popeyes of false advertising, deceptive business practices and causing him to waste “countless time driving” to and from local chains to find the sandwich in the lawsuit he filed.
He also recalled being laughed at by his friends and also scammed of $25 by a man who posted a Craigslist ad claiming he could get sandwiches a restaurant was hiding in the back.
“I can’t get happy; I have this sandwich on my mind. I can’t think straight,” he told the Times Free Press. “It just consumes you.”
While the food company fast-food outlet is yet to release a statement on the lawsuit, Barr said he is seeking $5,000 in damages after suffering a tire damage and cracking one of his rims during the search.
