They had just been told at the drive-thru window that the store was sold out of the popular sandwiches.
The employee locked the doors to control the mob when they attempted to enter the restaurant.
Craig Barr's suit alleges "false advertising" and "deceptive business practices", NBC News reported. Meanwhile, Popeyes is still sold out of chicken sandwiches and everybody needs to chill. One of the guys was so upset that this Popeyes had no sandwiches that he pulled out a handgun.
However, Popeyes recently announced that they sold out of the chicken sandwiches and would not offer the item until further notice.
"I can't get happy; I have this sandwich on my mind".
With no sandwich in sight, Barr said had just about enough, claiming that the drive to multiple restaurants caused a flat tire and damaged his vehicle rim. "I can't think straight", Barr told the newspaper.
"Y'all. We love that you love The Sandwich", the Tuesday tweet said. The sandwich inspired memes, jokes, songs, and dances that helped Popeyes go viral on social media.
