"That's weird you're over here with a Chick-fil-A bag at Popeyes.' Just the timing was weird", recalled Walker.
He said he was scammed out of $25 by a man claiming to be a Popeyes employee who said he was selling sandwiches behind a restaurant. "I can't think straight", he told the Press on Thursday. Barr is hoping that his lawsuit will also stand against the "big corporate" and he is expected to appear in court in October.
Next week some undercover PR flack will hold up a Popeyes at gunpoint and demand that he be provided with 50 chicken sandwiches immediately or he'll start executing one hostage every hour on the hour.
After he was unable to get his hands on Popeyes' new fried chicken sandwich, Craig Barr filed suit against the company for compensation for his wasted time and emotional damages.
According to WTVC, Barr added that he was "hustled" after responding to an ad on Craigslist from someone claiming to know an employee who could hide away sandwiches for those willing to pay extra, then exchange them for $24.
He offered free food to Walker after she and her colleague were disappointed to learn that they would not be enjoying the new chicken sandwich, since the store was sold out. A social media back-and-forth the following week with the Twitter accounts of Chick-fil-A and Wendy's led to a substantial boost in popularity for the new product.
The hype, replete with videos on YouTube of people literally fighting over the sandwich in Popeyes chains, has reportedly been worth $65 million in media value to the company. "Unfortunately we're sold out (for now)", tweeted the company. The fast food chain said customers will be notified through its mobile app on when the sandwiches will return.
The company issued a statement saying that the entire company (yes, the ENTIRE company) is out of the chicken sandwich.
