Popeyes Runs Out Of Chicken in Rochester, NY

Submitted by: YinYang78 8 years ago in Funny

Besides the fact that this was a horrible news story to begin with, many people have felt that the story was also racist

I live right near Rochester. It`s pretty sad to have more crime per capita than New York City or even buffalo. I found it funny that the black lady yelling was saying she had to feed her kids. COOK YOU DUMB BITCH!

"I mean it - I`m coming back here any more."

Sure you`re not fatty. Dude looks like he hasn`t gone without a plate of fried chicken since he gave up pablum.

Don`t fret Popeye - fatty`ll be back with a powerful hunger on.

I hate seeing chickens discriminated against due to their race.

When will society finally accept that chickens are people too?

I think it sucks that the news channel has to try and make sure all their interviews have some diversity or they get called racists.


There`s a lot of black people in rochester.

Also, that lady asks how she is supposed to feed her family? Ummm... idk... go to KFC?

Wow.. that angry over Chicken?
1. Go to the supermarket.
2. Buy some chicken.
3. Flour and crumbs also if you want it battered.
4. Go home and..get this.. COOK.

Yeah, sure 4.99 great deal, you can get just as much if not more by buying your own ingredients.
It will cost more then 4.99 but in the long run it feeds more people and saves you some.

So if you film a basketball game and all the players are black does that make the camera man racist?
How about the 100 yard dash and all the runners are black is the race committee racist?
All the chicken customers were black does that make the newsroom racist?
What if all the customers had been all white would that have been racist?
If Popeyes had handed out free watermelon to the dissapointed customers would that have been racist?

How am I supposed to feed my kids, by cooking for them?

They should have stayed open and offered everyone a nice healthy free salad. Wonder how many takers they would`ve had.

@miraclewik: Oh, I completely agree. I just think that if they didn`t want to appear racist, it was dumb of them not to put in at least one non-African American, even if it was only chance that everyone they filmed was black (or extremely impassioned :P).

1. I feel really bad for the peons who work in those stores.
2. Bitching about it ain`t gonna help, you`re not ENTITLED to the chicken. I`d almost expect them to run out if it was OMG SUCH A GOOD DEAL
3. It was really stupid of the news channel not to notice there was not a single white, asian, hispanic, etc. person in the clips. Maybe not racist, but really effing dumb.

That reminds me of this story (from 2005):

Lost Churches of Louisiana

One of the local television stations in Southern Louisiana recently aired an interview with a black woman from New Orleans.

The interviewer was a woman from a Boston affiliate. She asked the black woman how such total and complete devastation of the churches in the area had affected their lives.

Without hesitation, the woman replied, "I don`t know about all those other people, but we haven`t gone to Churches in years. We gets our chicken from Popeye`s."

The look on the interviewer`s face was priceless.

A kid at my school got trampled on a fried chicken lunch day at my school last year. He had a few broken bones and was in the hospital for a few days. It is really sad that my school is in the top 30 best high schools in the United States.

White people protesting Popeye`s now? Every Popeye`s I`ve been to seems to be in an area predominantly settled by black residents. I guess they know their market. When they gave away free grandslams at Denny`s a couple of months ago, I noticed the majority were older people.

People talking on cellphones or screaming at drive-thru fast food joints from their 2008 series SUV`s have NO RIGHT NOR REASON to be claiming their "tryin` to feed their kids" or "Are you kiddin` me? I`m hungry".

I`m sorry, but these people in this video are typical moochers. They suck off of the system and take advantage of every generosity lent by others without so much as a thank you.

Go home. Stop talking on your cellphone with your designer glasses and from your gas guzzlers. When you`re in dirty clothes and truly hungry, you`re NOT pulling up to Popeye`s for a freebie. You`re standing in line for a foodbox at the local mission.

well there is always kfc. And I laugh at those people that say that popeyes had a good deal on their food, and they save money by eating there. Anybody with common sense knows that you can get yourself a couple pounds of drumsticks and thighs on the cheap. The oil and flour to fry it with is inexpensive, too. You can also make your own homemade mash potatoes and coleslaw and save $$$ too.

That one woman drove from one Popeye`s across town because they were out of chicken, to that location for the 4.99 deal.. I wonder, did it EVER cross her mind that she probably wasted more in gas then what it would have cost her to go to the local grocery store and fry her own damn chicken?

Ricky,it was probably the only people that were driving up to the drive thru. It`s just that Popeye`s placed the eatery where it would be amongst a popular demographic for the company =$$$.

If you take a stroll through East New York (It`s in Brooklyn),there`s chicken joints on every other corner from chain`s like Popeye`s to non chain`s, Kennedy Fried Chicken.

Most of the non-chain`s are open 24 hr`s, they lock up at night & you have to order through a tiny window that`s cut out of a bulletproof window with like a spinning bulletproof box so they can pass the food off.. I KID YOU NOT lol

So, anyone else notice how the news crew only interviewed two races?

I`ve seen it before. There was a news crew at a McDonalds in some town in Indiana I was almost going to eat at while traveling.

I was parked in the lot like everyone else while the police were going in with masks.

The news crew only interviewed overweight Caucasians that appeared to be middle class.

They skipped me. I`m not overweight. And I was wearing a suit shirt and pants.
They skipped the guy beside me. He was Indian.
They skipped a truck. The guy inside had a suit on.
They skipped an overweight couple beside me. They were Caucasian AND overweight, but they had a nice car and wore business apparel.


I am really interested to know why the news crews tend to do racial profiling and only interview people the general public might expect to be there.

I don`t think it`s racist. They are people who are upset about not getting what they want. People look to much into things and try and find bad things where there isn`t any. Stop getting your panties in a bunch and just accept that there were PEOPLE out trying to get food. Hell, the camera man could have been black for all we know, maybe he was racist.

Unfortunately, I`ve witnessed a couple examples of black people who are super-pissed that they can`t get or lost some food of the cheap variety with my own eyes. It`s really quite shameful.

I swear to God, only a couple weeks ago I was riding the bus to Union Station, and on that same bus was a fat black lady screaming into her cell phone that she lost 20 dollars worth of food, and was starving.

That said, stuff like this just doesn`t faze me anymore.

There are so many things wrong with this I don`t know where to begin...

1. NO ONE TOLD YOU YOU HAD TO EAT THERE! So what if they ran out? Go to the KFC across the street. Stop acting like it`s a big friggin atrocity that a restaurant ran out of a menu item. Seriously, these people can all go screw themselves.

2. Stereotypical to the max. If that was intentional on the journalist`s part, it was unprofessional. If that was in fact the only demographic that was trying to get chicken that day, it`s pretty damn hilarious.

3. "People are trying to feed their kids" ...So, go to the grocery store and buy some food, dumbsh*t.

I think the point is that the store advertised a big sale. $4.99 for a bucket of chicken? I`d throw a party! When people feel cheated, they`re really eager to talk about it, and saying "go somewhere else" is meaningless, because they can`t get that deal anywhere else.
And as for racism? All I saw was a dozen black people NOT eating chicken. Put THAT in your mind-hole. (OK, that`s a BS argument, but I`m trying to amuse you people!)

"3rd...I am completely not racist (except for Mexicans, which we can all agree on)"

You`re joking, right? Please don`t make people from the South look bad.

This story isn`t racist. Black people like fried chicken. If they did a story at Jamba Juice, I`m sure it`d be all white people. I prefer fried chicken personally.

All that over some $4.99 fried chicken. I`m pretty sure this only happened in urban areas. It`s not racist, thats just where they sell more chicken. If it were a sale on turkey clubs or granola you would have seen all white people.

1st.. Spirithound... what do you call black people in Canada?
2nd...zombiejedi... Really? BAD ZOMBIEJEDI!
3rd...I am completely not racist (except for Mexicans, which we can all agree on), and most of the people on this video were your average joes. But that one lady that was yelling at the speakerbox... WOW! That`s severe brain damage. She`s trying to "feed her kids" and if thats a troublesome affair, WHY IS SHE IN A LOADED EXCURSION?!?! (it gets maybe like 10-15 mpg and I think thats being generous). She could have also just as easily COOKED something.

No guys you misunderstand, they actually tried to avoid racial stereotyping on this one lol... but there were just no white people that complained .. White people are just like "Whatever, let`s go to .. Boston Market." ... Black people are like ... "FUQ.."

P.S.: I swear to God i ate Popeye`s today.. it was delicious ... and plentiful ...

I do not understand why anyone would think this is racist. Thirty-eight percent of Rochester residents are black. That is part of the reason right there. Do more black Americans eat at Popeye`s than white Americans? I`d bet a lot of money the answer is yes, but I was unable to find statistics. This is just silly.

Lesson learned: even well-dressed black guys who don`t speak African American Vernacular English like chicken.

So, these people are pissing away an hour and burning up $10 worth of gas driving all over town all to save $3 on a bucket of chicken? That`s not just stupid; that`s SCARY stupid!

I`m hearing a lot of "I`m trying to feed my family."

So go to the effing grocery store, buy your own effing chicken and cook the EFFING THING YOURSELF. How HARD is that?!

Did people actually let their children starve because of this? I doubt it. McDonalds was more than likely still serving cheesbeurgers.

They act as is no one got anything. When there`s a special on something that good it`s gone quick, so come earlier. Get over it and go home.

The only thing `round my house is a KFC that never has chicken ready when we want it. There`s always a wait, so my parents don`t like to get dinner there anymore.
Sometimes, if I`m lucky, they`ll spring for Chicken Shack.
But otherwise, I feel your pain, fellow chicken lovers.
I feel your pain. :(

Ha, same things happened to me once, but it was at a Church`s chicken. Drive through conversation went like this:

Me: "I`d like a 10 piece family pack..."
Speaker: *bfftvv* "WE OUT OF CHICKEN" *krrak*
Me: "Um...okay, I`ll get some cole slaw then..."
Speaker: *zzzfft* "WE OUT OF COLE SLAW" *ffxxt*
Me: "Uh, some biscuits?"
Speaker: *ffrrr* "OUT OF THEM TOO." *crraarr*
Me: "Uh...well..what do you have, then?"
Speaker: *zztt* "ALL WE GOT IS GRAVY LEFT" *brrr*

O_o The conversation was totally surreal. Wonder why they didn`t just say "All we have is gravy" when I pulled up instead of letting me try to order for several minutes? Ended up buying Long John Silver`s instead. Never did go back. LOL.

Anyways, I had to watch it again. Whats with the lady saying she cant feed her kids because of a fast food restaurant being closed? Go to the store and buy some chicken and cook it yourself!

As for the "racism", they probably could have interviewed a couple white people, but who knows? I`ll give the reporter the benefit of the doubt and say that the 8 cars they stopped just so happened to have black people in them.
