Viral Video Shows Rats Swarming a Kitchen of This Beloved Chicken Chain

If you love your Louisiana-style fried chicken, you may want to avert your eyes.

A Popeyes location near Washington, DC's Eastern Market was closed down last week after a delivery man blew the whistle on the state of the restaurant's kitchen. In a TikTok video posted on October 11 and viewed more than 145,000 times, a user named @blaqazzrick01 shows the state of the Popeyes' food prep stations after hours.

The man, who says he delivers raw chicken to all the Popeyes restaurants in the DC area, appears to enter the restaurant after it's closed down for the night, saying "watch this s—t right here." When he flips the light switch on in the kitchen area, several rodents can clearly be seen running around on the floors and even up a pole into the ceiling. "You still love that chicken from Popeyes?" the man says, referring to the chain's famous jingle.

According to the New York Post, the video went viral on several news outlets and social media, which resulted in a Twitter user alerting DC council member Charles Allen of the situation at the Popeyes located on 409 Eighth Street SE.

To which Allen quickly responded with the news that the restaurant has been shut down.

Fox 5 also reported that the location was shut down on October 28, more than two weeks after the video started making the rounds. A notice on the door of the restaurant by the DC Health Department states the location is closed until further notice because of violations of food code regulations which present a health hazard to the public.

Rodents aren't just a problem at Popeyes. Last year, one of Chipotle's locations in New York City was temporarily shut down after multiple workers were bitten in an ongoing rat infestation. According to them, the rats were gorging on avocado and dry rice and appeared to be multiplying in size and number quickly.
