When your right to buy a chicken sandwich is denied

Robbers stormed a Popeyes in Houston demanding chicken sandwiches at gunpoint after being told the location was sold out

• A group of armed robbers attempted to enter a Houston Popeyes to demand chicken sandwiches at gunpoint after being told the location was sold out, KTRK-TV in Houston reported.
• An employee was able to lock the doors before the group, which reportedly included two women and three men, was able to get inside. There were no injuries and Houston police are searching for the suspects.
Popeyes pandemonium reached new extremes on Monday night, when a group of people at a Houston restaurant location demanded the popular chicken sandwiches at gunpoint.

According to a local Houston ABC affiliate, two women and three men came into the Popeyes carrying at least one gun after they were told the sandwiches were sold out at the drive-thru window. An employee locked the door before the group entered the restaurant, KTKR-TV reported.
Employees on the scene said the group appeared solely interested in acquiring the sandwiches, and had also left a baby behind inside a nearby vehicle. There were no injuries and Houston police are currently looking for the suspects.

Popeyes told Business Insider last week that it sold through its allocation of chicken sandwiches expected to last until the end of September in just two weeks. On August 27, the company shared its sandwich shortage with the public on Twitter, writing "We love that you love The Sandwich. Unfortunately we're sold out (for now.)"
"The demand for the new chicken sandwich in the first few weeks following launch far exceeded our very optimistic expectations," the company told Business Insider. "In fact, Popeyes aggressively forecasted demand through the end of September and has already sold through that inventory."
The massive demand for the sandwiches has greatly overwhelmed Popeyes employees, several of which shared tales of long hours with no breaks with Business Insider.

"Everyone wanted to quit so bad because it was that bad," a Popeyes crew member in Orange County said. "We have never seen it get this insanely busy."

2. You mean, you don't believe they have a RIGHT to the chicken sandwiches?

Like they have a right to free housing and healthcare?
