Tennessee Man Sues Popeye's for $5,000 After Not Being Able to Get Their Viral Chicken Sandwich Mike Vance December 29, 2019 News A Tennessee man is unable to get his hands on the new Popeye's chicken sandwich and is taking massive action as a result. Craig Barr filed a lawsuit against Popeye's for "false advertising" and "deceptive business practices" by the company. The man claims he has spent "countless hours" driving all over trying to track down the chicken sandwich. The sandwich was released on August 12, but has been sold out nationwide since August 12. There are people selling the viral sandwich on eBay with a "buy it now" price for as much as $20,000. Another group of men are selling the chicken sandwiches outside of Popeye's for five times the cost of the sandwich.
