How You Like Me Now? Tristan Thompson Buys Popeyes Chicken Sandwiches For Everyone In Line With Him

After a 30-minute wait, the Cavaliers' big man hooked everyone up with the sandwich that’s taking over the internet.

The Great Chicken Sandwich Wars that have captivated the hearts and minds of America doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. 

Unless you’re vegetarian or vegan, it’s impossible not to be impacted by this! That goes for NBA players too!

After Popeyes announced its new sandwich, it sparked an online debate on who makes the best chicken sandwich. Chick-fil-A or Popeyes?

The debate has gotten intense, but it’s mostly social media fun, with everyone trying to get their jokes off. Read: passive-aggressive. 

Fast food giant Wendy’s even got in on the action via Twitter:

The rush to Popeyes locations across the country has led to longer-than-normal wait times and chicken sandwiches selling out at some locations. 

In an Instagram post captured by Baller Alert, Cleveland Cavaliers big man Tristan Thompson appears to order his meal and is asked by another customer to pay for everyone else's as well. 

Thompson must have been in a good mood or feeling particularly generous and it looks as though he obliged and took care of everyone waiting. 

Certainly a nice gesture, and it likely made the wait OK for everyone since they all got a free meal. 

You have to wonder, with all of this free advertising and attention Popeyes has captured in the public consciousness, maybe they, too, will be generous and do something nice.
