Man killed at Maryland Popeyes in fight linked to popular chicken sandwich

A man was killed at a Maryland Popeyes over a fight linked to the chain’s popular fried chicken sandwich, police said.

A spokeswoman for the Prince George’s Police Department said the victim, who has not been identified, was stabbed at a restaurant in Oxon Hill, outside Washington D.C.

The fight began inside the restaurant and later moved outside, said the spokeswoman, Jennifer Donelan.

Donelan said the man later died at a hospital.

Sources said the fight was reportedly linked to the sale of the sandwich, which Popeyes began selling on Sunday after a two-month hiatus.

The restaurant introduced the sandwich in August, then sold out in just two weeks — a surge in popularity prompted by a viral feud with Chick-fil-A.

This summer, customers angry about the sandwich shortage threatened restaurant workers at a franchise in Texas. Another filed a lawsuit in Tennessee alleging “deceptive business practices.”

Popeyes did not immediately respond to a request for comment Monday.
