Ja Rule believes that the Popeyes chicken sandwich craze has gone too far, and the New York-based rapper shared his views in an expletive-filled rant on Twitter on Nov. 5, 2019.

“Y’all really out here acting like n—s over a f—-g chicken sandwich,” Ja rule wrote on his post. “Now I’m never gonna eat one on principles alone! F—-g idiots y’all are what’s wrong with our people. I’m so disappointed in my people we better than this.”

Ja Rule was responding to news that a man was stabbed and killed after a fight occurred at a Popeyes restaurant in Maryland. Along with the stabbing death, fights and arguments have broken out at several Popeyes locations nationwide.

However, Ja Rule caught flack from some social media users who mentioned the Fyre Festival debacle that he was apart of in 2017. People paid thousands to attend the festival that was to take place in the Bahamas. But due to poor planning, the festival never occurred, people were given cold cheese sandwiches for meals, and it led to multiple lawsuits.
