If you're a fan of fried chicken, there are only a few places worth going to for a proper fix. Over the years, Chick-Fil-A, although controversial, has been in the lead when it comes to chicken. In an era where literally everything and anything can get canceled in a heartbeat, even their CEO's anti-LGBTQ stance hasn't prevented many people who believe in equal rights to fall back on Chick-Fil-A. The one thing that seems to be giving them a run for their money right now is none other than Popeyes.
Popeyes f*cked the chicken game up this past week after unveiling their brand new chicken sandwiches. It's been getting praise across the board with many Chick-Fil-A advocates getting ready to switch sides. Even though Chick Fil A appeared to back their product wholeheartedly after Popeye's launch of their new product, it seemed like they needed to remind the Twittersphere to put some respect on their name. Unfortunately, that only opened a window of opportunity for Popeyes to throw shade at them. The mere tweets between the two companies have since sparked warfare on Twitter between their fanbases, although it seems like the conversion process from Chick-Fil-A to Popeyes has already commenced.
If it makes Chick-Fil-A feel any better, this review from Business Insider said that their mac-and-cheese is superior to essentially every other fast food joint.
Peep some of the best reactions below.
Chick-Fil-A Makes Surprising Addition To Permanent Menu
Chick-fil-A is adding mac and cheese to the menu!
McDonald's, Wendy's and other fast-food chains are always looking for new ways to shape up their menu. With endless possibilities existing in the kitchen, it can't be too hard for these restaurants to come up with new and exciting flavors for us to try out. One chain that isn't particularly into change (or many other things, for that matter...) is Chick-fil-A. The chicken gods have bestowed Chick-fil-A with the comfort of not needing to shake things up on their menu all too often. For years, things have remained constant over there but even they have decided to embrace a new product: mac and cheese.
The American classic comfort food has officially been added to the permanent menu at Chick-fil-A, leaving many to wonder if it's worth the hype. According to NBC, this is the first time the Atlanta-based restaurant has added a new side to their menu since 2016. Amanda Norris, the head of menu and packaging for the chicken joint, explained why they rarely add new things to their stores in a statement. "We have a very high bar when it comes to adding a menu item, but the feedback from our customers in the test markets made this decision easy," she said.
Mac and cheese will be available at Chick-fil-A starting today. The chain is also rolling out Frosted Caramel Coffee for a limited time, serving the beverage until November (or until quantities last.)
Boosie Badazz Arrested In Georgia, Faces Felony Gun & Drug Charges
The arresting officer reportedly found a loaded gun, marijuana, and a large sum of cash.
It was just last week when Boosie Badazz dropped his album Badazz 3.5, and the rapper was enjoying having released a record that was well received by his fans until he had an unfortunate run-in with the law earlier today. The Lousiana native was driving through Newnan, Georgia when he was pulled over by police because they claimed the deputy noticed a white Dodge Charger swerving and nearly hitting another vehicle on a bypass, according to the Newnan-Herald Times.
After the vehicle pulled over in a Chick-fil-A parking lot, Sgt. Jeff Bugg approached the car and spoke with the driver who just happened to be Boosie, real name Torrence Hatch Jr. Also in the car was Antonio Allen, a former free safety for the New York Jets. Sgt. Buggs reportedly smelled a strong odor of marijuana and placed Boosie in the back of the police car while Allen stayed inside of the Charger.
After searching the vehicle, Bugg found approximately 11 grams of what’s suspected to be marijuana and a loaded 9mm handgun. Both were located around Allen’s seat. There was also a vape pen with suspected THC oil and a bag with a large sum of cash. Boosie reportedly told the officer that he was talking on the phone while driving and that Allen was his bodyguard.

Both men were arrested and charged with possession of marijuana, possession of a schedule one drug, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. Boosie had an additional charge of failure to maintain a lane while driving. Both Boosie and Allen are currently in the Coweta County Jail.
Back in 2009, Boosie was sentenced to four years in prison over gun and drug charges for a similar incident. East Baton Rouge deputies found marijuana and a gun in his car then, too. The following year, Boosie was indicted on first-degree murder charges and later sentenced to eight years in prison for drug possession and intent to distribute. After spending three years on death row, he was found not guilty of murder in 2012. He spent five years in prison and was released in 2014, serving out his parole until 2018.
Allen currently has felony warrants out of South Carolina for firearm and drug charges, according to the Newnan-Herald Times. Bugg said charges of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon are pending for both men.
