A rep for Popeyes tells TMZ … they’re disgusted over the video, adding Popeyes has zero-tolerance for this kind of hateful aggression at its restaurants. They’re also working with the owner … offering support and providing assistance to make sure employees feel safe.
The Popeyes rep goes on to say they’ll review ways to better respond to negative and harmful customer interactions.
