Black TV Anchor Throws A-Plus Shade At His White Colleague Over The Chicken Sandwich War

The chicken in Popeye's sandwich crunches audibly when you bite in, with all those nooks and crannies on the surface shattering into a thousand delicious pieces. This makes for an exciting contrast to the soft bun. The chicken itself is also juicy and well-seasoned, without tasting wildly over-salted like the fried-chicken sandwiches at McDonald's; $3.99 (Nick Kindelsperger/Chicago Tribune/TNS)

Black TV Anchor Throws A-Plus Shade At His White Colleague Over The Chicken Sandwich War

Twitter is SCREAMING.

Published August 26th

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?"

DEAD.

Take a look at the clip, below:
