Popeyes is having a hard time keeping up with the demand for the restaurant’s new chicken sandwiches.

All those long lines and that waiting has resulted in a shortage nationwide, and it appears to be happening again.

Popeyes did issue a statement saying they plan to restock as soon as possible.

They even tweeted a video showing the responses and feedback online:

EURweb reminds us of what first sparked the phenomenon in the first place:

Speaking of fans, here is how one female customer showed up at a Popeyes to get herself a sandwich:

Even Cleveland Cavaliers player Tristan Thompson got in on the Popeyes craze!  Here is what happened when he was at a location in Los Angeles, according to EURwebL

To help expedite the need, the baller moved to the front of the line and offered to pay for everyone’s order, Complex reports.

This has become the most popular chicken sandwich ever!
