A Tennessee man is suing Popeyes over their sold out chicken sandwich.
Craig Barr of East Ridge, Tennessee has filed a lawsuit against the popular fast-food chain accusing them of false advertisement, deceptive business practices and causing him to waste “countless time driving” back and forth to local restaurants in search of the coveted sandwich.
But, that’s not all… Craig also got scammed by a man on Craigslist who promised he could get him a sandwich for $25.
Barr met the man, who took the money, went inside of a building and never came back out.
Oh, but I’m not done! Craig Barr also claims while driving all around town searching for the Popeyes chicken sandwich, the tire blew on his car causing him $1200 in rim and tire damage.
What’s really interesting is the fact that the man says he is now depressed and can’t stop thinking about the sandwich — and it’s all Popeyes’ fault for over-hyping their chicken sandwich.
I can’t get happy; I have this sandwich on my mind. I can’t think straight. It just consumes you.
It’s totally deceptive. Who runs out of chicken? It’s a big fiasco. Someone has to stand up to big corporate.
Everyone is captivated by these sandwiches. They’ve got everyone gassed up on them.
Craig Barr filed his suit against Popeyes on Wednesday with Hamilton County Circuit Clerk Larry Henry and he’s seeking $5,000 in damages.
Looove that chicken from Popeyes!
