Popeyes crispy chicken sandwich is still all the rage in Black communities. The sandwich is in such demand that lines queue down the block and chair throwing brawls have broken out inside restaurants. Janet wanted to see what the hoopla is for herself. But she's Janet Jackson, so she needed a police escort to jump the lines.

A cordon of police surrounded Janet and her bodyguard when she stopped by a New York restaurant to taste the coveted sandwich for herself. Janet didn't give her review of the sandwich, but she had a big smile on her face.

Earlier I told you there is a movement to discredit and slander Popeyes' good name, as some on Black Twitter accused the "white corporation" of launching a viral marketing campaign that targeted Black people in poor neighborhoods.

In response to the backlash, Popeyes asked influential Blacks such as DJ Jermaine Dupri and rap mogul T.I. to step in and clear the air.

"Just in case you didn't know #Atlanta you ARE supporting Black Business when you get that Spicy Chicken Sandwich from @PopeyesChicken," reads a meme reposted by JD and T.I.

They want you to know that baseball legend Hank Aaron, who resides in Southwest Atlanta, owns 27 Popeyes restaurant franchises around the Greater Atlanta area. And Mack Wilbourn, who is a person of color, owns the #1 and #2 Popeyes franchises in the world.

T.I. captioned his post: "One time for the OGs. #UsorElse."

  • KcoolMuziq

    Janet(whom I've worked with) was not coming from Popeyes. She was coming from the subway where she was filming a scene for a video for "Made For Now" a year ago.

  • Blak

    Are we seriously talking about a dead bird on a piece of bread causing chaos amongst blacks...again??

  • Pamela

    So was this posted video taken last year? If so why would Sandra state otherwise?

  • Lovely517

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

  • BTweekin

    She's Coming From Downstairs. The Subway Train Not Popeye's.

  • Allihave2say

    Janet could have spoken she doesn't have to be nasty. I see that middle eastern influence is still present with Janet. She stays covered up.

    I live in a predominantly white area and they have signs posted on the speaker signs that they're out of the sandwich. I hate mayo so the one I tried was just regular.

  • dru and neil

    There is no way Janet Damita Jo ate that greasy fried chicken! Her abs are rock solid for a reason.

  • DroneRivers

    I see all this advertising got everybody curious about some damn chicken! lmao

  • DroneRivers

    Uh, has anyone else heard about Paul Mooney trending on Twitter for allegedly sexually assaulting Richard Pryor, Jr.? This is according to Richard Pryor's bodyguard. And the story goes so far as to say Richard Pryor put a one million dollar hit out on Paul Mooney after finding out about the alleged rape. This allegedly, supposedly happened roughly 40 years ago.

  • Naturally Brown

    Wait a chicken sandwich. We doing what, drops head in shame. This aint real is ??

  • Yup, I said it

    Ok now, Ms. Jackson if you're nasty.

  • DroneRivers

    Have you seen Janet between tours? She definitely enjoys some tasty food! Lol
    She just has the amazing discipline to work the weight back off once it's go time.

  • Facts and Receipts

    They sure are rock hard for a reason. Surgery. Just posted downstairs that Tauruses are known to be gluttonous/greedy. Number ONE trait. Janet was chunky off and on her whole life. I think she ate it

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Yeah...cold grease aint good.

  • Naturally Brown

    I got tears, say its a joke we are not doing this over chicken. This is why i logg off internet.

  • Yup, I said it

    If Janet is back to being boo'd up with Jermaine Cypress the I bet she fuxxed that sammich up and put some honey on it with a side if strawberry Fanta.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    The cost of that sandwich would have gone up to $1005.99+tax.

  • Guest©
  • Naturally Brown

    I been in one. This is embarrassing. Looks like i need to log off for a few more days, smgdh

  • DroneRivers

    lol

  • DroneRivers

    Lmao I almost got a cramp laughing at this. But you really think only Black people are buying that chicken sandwich?

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Not Me!!! I got my Tray of chicken legs at Walmart and will cook them at home. Homemade chicken sandwich, no line, and no grease!!!

  • dontgetblocked

    Don't be fooled. My Popeye's is in a lily white neighborhood and the white folks are lined up. They're even coming from the outlying rich communities.

  • Bushbabe

    So it's racist when people say black people love fried chicken? But black people out here looking all types of crazy over fried chicken . I can't deal lmaooooo make ya minds what you wanna be.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Viola Davis, 54, is set to play former First Lady Michelle Obama, 55, in the series First Ladies, currently in development at Showtime.
    I think she'll do a great job.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Yeap, No star Should be Above Speaking!!! Especially to the people Who put them there.

  • DroneRivers

    Make no mistake, there are people of all races buying that chicken. It's a silly stereotype just like the watermelon one. White people love some fried chicken and watermelon, too

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    But Can't and Don't Chase their Families like that!!!

  • Starburst

    Make it stop. Beyonce was onto Popeyes years ago before this fiasco. I recall she said that she loves Popeyes chicken. All they need is Beyonce to say something and it will all be over.

  • Starburst

    I've never liked that Paul Mooney. It's something about him that strikes me the wrong way.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Hopefully that Same girl paid Janet's ass Dust by Not going to her concert.

  • Starburst

    I agree. It's so stupid. Indians like curry chicken, German like chicken wurst, Italians like chicken parmigiana, Spanish people like chicken and rice, and so on. Black people are not the only ones that eat chicken

  • MsPam

    Really?! Folks getting killed but police have time to escort her to the chicken shack?! This is what happens to black celebrities when yt folks stop listening to your music.

    Forget about this, Richard Pryor former bodyguard, said Richard wanted Paul Mooney. killed because Paul violated Richard Pryor Jr.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    A celebrity gets a police escort to buy a chicken sandwich. A chicken sandwich.
    Seriously? Is this real life?

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Rachel Lindsay[the Black chick] & Bryan Abasolo finally tied the knot~
    The pair, who met on Lindsay’s season of The Bachelorette, married in a beachfront ceremony on Aug. 24 at the Royalton Suites Cancún in Mexico.

    Are you open to dating out of your race? I used to be. I don't think I am anymore.

  • Vegas1989

    Yeah I saw that....MMMmmm

  • She.Is.Not.Ready

    Pink penis freaks me out...but good for her on finding love.

  • DroneRivers

    This is me! I like to cook my own! Except I prefer the thigh.

  • DroneRivers

    Nope, I'm not open to it. But to each their own and congrats to them!

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I never got that far, but the ones I hung out with seemed to be more attentive~ listening, opening doors, etc.

    I'm too old now to make any cultural changes...

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    We the one standing in 3 hour Kong’s line, jumping across counters beat workers for it and have whole bands inside Popeyes partying over that heart stopping sammich

  • DroneRivers

    I am here for it!

  • Coffee1st

    I just saw that. Waiting for the fall out. If it's true, I hope Paul pays grieviously for it.

  • Coffee1st

    I saw Mexico and Europe being repped up in there. Strong.

  • Coffee1st

    She's a Taurus?

    Yes, I am greedy. ?

  • Facts and Receipts

    Baby. Me too.

  • Facts and Receipts

    Yes she our moon sister? like may 16th-ish

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Can't think of a better choice.

  • LoveChild

    I swirl? just like most black males do?Black women only women sitting around waiting for males of their race of the rest of the women are swirling like crazy.

    And everybody knows how much black males swirl the most wealthy ones married out so their money goes right back to the white Hispanic and Asian communities

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Well Florida finally got it right...
    Florida Man Found Guilty Manslaughter Of Unarmed Black Man

    A Florida white man, Michael Drejka, is going prison for the murder of a Black man Markeis McGlockton after a dispute in a convenience store parking lot according to NBCNews.

    An angry Drejka ran up on McGlockton’s girlfriend Britany Jacobs because she was parked in a handicapped space with her children while Markeis was in the store. When Markeis saw Drejka accosting his lady he ran out the store and pushed him the ground. In response, Drejka pulled his pistol and shot Markeis dead, the security camera captured the whole incident.

  • LoveChild

    You sound silly. Black males are not loyal they love pink titties

  • Assigned Female @ Birth

    Asians love fried chicken too.

  • Chhzz

    I know the police have better things to do. Ms Jackson could have her assistant go in for her. Smdh

  • Chhzz

    I remember this. And he tried to use stand your ground...

  • Chhzz

    But how much time will the judge give him?

  • Chhzz

    Y'all got your own updates going on lol

  • Chhzz

    Why pit us them against blk men? How about you marry who u want

  • Christopher Gibson

    People this is an old video. This was taken earlier this year when Janet was in New York to promote her single “Made For Now”...she had just rode the subway in New York for the first time; not coming from Popeye’s.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™
  • ClaireHuxtable

    I'm just tired of talkin bout chicken sammiches l0l!

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I'd love to see him in a cell with George Zimmerman.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Didn't see that. They may not have sentenced him yet.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    In the video he clearly sh00ts the guy because he Can...not because the guy is coming any closer to him.

  • Vonn

    Why didn't she just send Randy to pick up some sammiches?

  • LoveChild

    Chick or male have no idea what you’re talking about because I never compete with any male.

    And you’re being obtuse on purpose trying to pretend you don’t know what the real topic is?

  • Chhzz

    Lmbo. Always love reading your or participating in intellectual banter with you....

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Oh it’s absolutely nothing called structure in most black families

  • Carrington

    Unless pah pahz has a basement, she was getting off the SUBWAY.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Black men chase them because they don't have to work too hard to catch them.

  • SaltineCrackers

    Fake News

  • LoveChild

    Miss Jackson she could go anywhere and do whatever she wants????? I have nothing but love and respect for her ??????

  • LoveChild

    Agreed. That was a murdering freak he wanted to get away with killing a black man. RIP.

  • LoveChild

    Nope. They deliberately target black males with money or black males that are going to come into money or black males with a good job and good benefit you better get hip to the game.
    Seems like some of you black females aren’t that diverse you seem to not have any idea of what’s going on out there.

    Non-black females date black males wallets don’t be fooled. The economy is tought and we’re going into a recession.

  • LoveChild

    Trolling on my bra strap ????????

  • LoveChild

    You’re right Beyoncé called out Popeyes a long time ago

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    LOL. i'm going to start blogging too. This video is old. It's when Janet rode the subway in NY when her single Made for Now was released. She was being honored for something.

    Sorry Popeyes. Miss Jackson would never, publicly. And since Beyonce supposedly get free Popeye's for life, y'all gonna have to catch her chewing on this sandwich instead.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Two of my "bruthas" f00led with wyte women. They are easier than Black women and take more crap.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    U should look for a video camera before U just sh00t people.

  • She.Is.Not.Ready

    Im not attracted to white men....that ain't my bag. You generalizing all black males as unloyal is silly. My father has been loyal to my Mom for 30+ years my husband's parents have been married for 40+ years and I am happily married to a black Man that has been loyal to me for the past 15 years (married for 7). None of the 3 men mentioned above have kids outside of the relationship.

    Men love titties regardless of color not sure what point you are trying to prove. But you need to look inwards and ponder why you are attracting losers before lumping all black males into the same category.

  • LoveChild

    Everybody you mention is old.

    Your father is the dying breed?? and you are middle-age.

    These modern black males are not loyal and you know it. ?

    Nobody has a story of a 25-year-old black male who is loyal married to his black wife in the house raising the kids. Because that shit is rare AF. Modern Black males aren't husbands their baby daddies?

    On Twitter they’re talking about 80% of black women are the breadwinners so, come again with the fax of reality.

    I know some of y’all females have a hard time with reality your focus is narrow just you’re pretending you don’t see the big picture.

    I’ve made my point with you. No need for me to go further???

  • Stan4NoOne

    She's clearly coming from the train station. And this clip is old. https://media3.giphy.com/media/4GIvR6cmYs8jC/giphy.gif

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Don't know yet. But the judge could give him up to 30 years.

  • Juliaquan C Spain

    Hell with all the surrounded security team their one could've just went in to pick up the dam sandwich...instead of adding to the chaos.

  • Rhondalousey

    Me too but she could have at least said hi lol.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    This woman and her alter ego ("dontgetdraggedhoe", her other username) clearly have an issue with black males. Not sure if one hurt her real bad, or what the deal is, but the black male-bashing is a regular thing with her. Just so you know.

  • Chhzz

    Update us when it happen. Bet he get like years

  • Chhzz

    O. You finally admitting your TS status

  • rockstar2142

    It’s funny how they get called out and have nothing to say but respond to everything else.

  • rockstar2142

    You ain’t got no choice but to cause we don’t want your crazy ass.

  • Allihave2say

    Right. Seeing & hearing celebs is how their money is made. It get that they are people and entitled to privacy but she could've sent an errand boy out for her food. Privacy is for people who don't live their lives as public figures. Oh well, I stopped being a fan of hers years ago. Seeing her chopped face, bleached skin and non african baby confirms to me I made the right decision.

  • dru and neil

    Lmao...that’s just how I like it too!

  • dru and neil

    I never even thought once that woman had surgery on those abs!

  • dru and neil

    Yes her weight does fluctuate this is true...

  • dru and neil

    You’re right this time. I figure if in a few months and they still got it, I’ll try it, but I’m not going out of my way.

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    Wonder how many millions Popeyes shelled out for this viral campaign. Smart move on Burger King to buy out Popeyes.

    Omg if I hear about that nasty sandwich one more time and this is a FAKE STORY FOR CLICK AND BAIT

  • yea,and

    ..the truth is literally all over this page..yet people hours later are still..
    Its almost like its their job to constantly analyze incorrectly. That's a concept that seems to work well in many areas these days. Strange times.

  • She.Is.Not.Ready

    32 isn't exactly middle aged....besides aging is a privilege not a right. You will continue to have a hard time finding a good man of any race with that bitterness in your heart. I hope you have lots of batteries in that side drawer.

  • leapyearpisces

    No comment on this story, since yall saying it's fake. I just want to say, we black people TRULY ARE MAGIC!!!!! WE ARE SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO powerful as a COLLECTIVE and EVERYONE else but US KNOW THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS IS THE REASON the powers that be has kept us oppressed so long. TRUST!!!! "they" have known we are magical from the DAY they captured our MAGICAL asses. If ONLY we would put the energy, the magic, and the power in one another, that we have put into making this sandwich a HUGE success; therefore , MAJORLY lining Popeye''s GREAT-GREAT-GREAT-GREAT grand children pockets. MAN !!!!!! We would be a force that COULD NOT BE RECKONED WITH. WE would LITERALLY RULE the world. AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!

  • Donna Essentia

    so....she wasn't going to popeyes, the entrance to that popeyes is in the complete opposite direction she was going.
    she was going to Harlem week on 135th street

  • Renee26

    In response to the backlash, Popeyes asked influential Blacks such as DJ Jermaine Dupri and rap mogul T.I. to step in and clear the air.

    Oh so they didn't do it on their own accord huh ?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yup. I've called her out several times on it since last week and she hasn't said a word. She knows I know who she is.

    Magical for fucking piece of coon chicken ain't nothing magical about that. This whole shit is an embarrassment. I'm black and fucking ashamed of this coonery

  • rachel brown

    So black women cant love penis no matter the color like. Black men love titties. So you give black men a pass for fucking white women all night and day but judge black women when they do the same. You need to take a good look at yourself and your issues

  • rockstar2142

    That’s exactly what it is.

  • David Booker

    This was a year ago when Janet was honored in Harlem. This is such fake news

  • She.Is.Not.Ready

    Ummmm not sure how me not being interested in white men means other black women can't date outside of their race. Last time I checked white women aren't the only women with titties my point was men love titties period. My preference is black men...you and all other black women are free to date as you so choose. If you actually believe all black men fuq white women then you are the one with the issue not me. Black people are not a monolith we have different preferences tastes and desires. Date whomever you like my dear.

    I didnt say black men ONLY fuck White women.But majority of interracial dating within black community is being done by black men . example walk in a Wal-Mart count how many. Bm/ ww compared to. Wm/Bw , 80% of NFL and half NBA .
    Almost all black male actors With WW. And your ok and defending that like oh it's no big deal but black women need to look under Every rock and relax all her standards to be with BM. Makes me wonder if your a black WOMAN at all ? Brotha.
