Popeyes chicken sandwich fever hit yet again, and it was just as insane this time around. People have been shot at, gotten in fights, waited in long lines and created absolute madness for this little fast food sandwich.
Just as crazy were the reactions to a Turkish restaurant’s viral video of a whole camel being smoked. The outrage over that video sparked not only a conversation over the lack of knowledge over other cultures' foods, but also questions over people being OK with one meat, but upset over another.
Uproxx Life editor, Steve Bramucci, joins The Foodbeast Katchup podcast to help us break down the madness over these two phenomena. The crew addresses if there is a hypocrisy from people being OK with chickens being killed, but being disgusted over camel meat, which is very common in other countries.
