Popeyes launches ‘Emotional Support Chicken’ carrier at Philadelphia airport

Fox News

What the cluck?

Popeyes is jumping on the controversial emotional support pet bandwagon with its latest promotion — a to-go container for its “Emotional Support Chicken.”

For a limited time, the fried chicken chain is offering travelers at Philadelphia International Airport an “Emotional Support Chicken” carrier when they purchase a 3-piece chicken tender combo meal.  

The promotion, which starts Tuesday, will provide guests with a carry-on box in the shape of a chicken and a sign boasting about its chicken’s “comforting” effects for travelers.

“This chicken provides comfort and nourishment during stressful air travel.  Unlike other chicken, it is marinated in real Louisiana spices for 12 hours and must be permitted to fly without restriction. Do not leave unattended, as Popeyes is not responsible for lost or stolen chicken.”

The fast-food chain said in a statement that the carrier was a “gesture designed to bring holiday travelers some needed humor to what is one of the most stressful places to be during the holidays — the airport.”

This year has been a rife with emotional support pet controversies — so much so that airlines began issuing regulations for what pets could and could not be considered emotional support animals.

Luckily, unlike other fowl, this chicken has been permitted to fly on all major carriers.
