Twitter is SCREAMING.

Popeyes' new chicken sandwich has taken over America. With the new menu item being a top trending topic for more than a week now, everyone from social media — even the hashtag #PopeyesVsChickFilA is gaining traction  — to the local news has been chiming in.

One of the TV programs to feature the recent fast food craze is pop culture show Daily Blast Live. A co-host threw some crispy shade at his colleague while they conducted a hilarious taste test.

Al Jackson, the only Black member on the four-person panel during that episode, had some words for his co-host Jeff Schroeder after they all took a bite.

"That's seasoning," Schroeder said while giving the Popeyes sandwich a nod of approval, to which Jackson hilariously responded, "Does that taste like a neighborhood you've never been to?"
