Popeyes Chicken is gonna learn the hard way. You don't toy with black people's emotions.
You'll remember last week I mentioned how Popeyes had this deal where, for one day, you could get eight pieces of chicken for $4.99. I actually went myself (I know, shocker) and got there right when they ran out of chicken.
I joked that I peeled the fuck out before a riot broke out, but I wasn't really sure what was gonna happen. I was mostly in a rush to get myself some chicken from the grocery store, like I always do. If I was more of a journalist than a fat fuck, I would have stuck around and interviewed people.
In the clip below, the local news in Rochester, NY talk to a bunch of people who didn't make it in time to Popeyes Pay Day. Many of them claimed they weren't coming back, and I'd encourage them not to. At least not until Popeyes does something to make this right.
What they should do is give a free bucket of chicken to anyone who took time out of their (surely busy) day to take advantage of this promotion, only to find out they were out of chicken. But you know mad people who weren't even there use that as an opportunity to come up on some free chicken.
At the very least, they should have another Popeyes Pay Day and make sure have enough chicken.
