Shocking videos have emerged of customers arguing with workers at Popeyes outlets in two separate locations as the return of the popular chicken sandwich sparks frenzied scenes nationwide.
A cashier and a customer are seen throwing trays at each other at a Popeyes restaurant in San Antonio in one video that surfaced on Friday.
Meanwhile, in another unidentified outlet a male customer is seen throwing an entire bucket of tea over a worker after he reportedly couldn’t get a chicken sandwich.
The first video, which has gone viral with more than 250,000 views, shows a cashier growing irate at a young female customer and throwing a tray at her.
The customer is then heard screaming at the female cashier and moves to jump over the counter, as the worker says ‘B****h look behind you.’

The customer’s friend can be heard saying in the background: ‘She’s not worth it.’
@Espinosa35_, the twitter user who posted the video Tuesday, claimed: ‘Lmaooo yoooo San Antonio was Wild for the Popeyes chicken sandwich today … this was on the southside.’
The incident occurred at Popeyes at 2225 SW Military Drive around 3.45 pm on Tuesday, a bystander told KSAT.
‘I’m not really sure what happened but the lady and the employee were yelling at each other and the cashier just started throwing trays,’ the female witness said.
She said that she saw the employee instigate the fight by throwing the tray and she allegedly threw tea at her.
‘The veteran took the lady outside and the manager followed them outside… and they physically got into a fist fight,’ Valarie said of the woman and the manager.
In another incident on Wednesday, a angered man is seen throwing an entire bucket of tea at a Popeyes worker because he couldn’t get a chicken sandwich.
The worker then throws the container back across the counter at the customer as a female companion with the man gets involved and starts throwing food.
The fights are the latest in a series of disturbing incidents, including a fatal stabbing, to have occurred at Popeyes restaurants in different locations nationwide.
On Monday, a Popeyes customer was stabbed to death during an argument in a line for the restocked chicken sandwich after its return to the menu.

The death happened at a branch of the fast food chain in Oxon Hill, Maryland on Monday night and was sparked by someone cutting in line, according to police.
Prince George’s County Police Chief Hank Stawinski appealed for the public’s help in identifying the man who fatally stabbed 28-year-old Kevin Tyrell Davis following the dispute.
Stawinski said only 15 seconds elapsed from when the altercation started to when it ended with the stabbing.
Davis had been ‘methodically’ cutting his way through the line for sandwiches for 15 minutes before the suspect confronted him at the front counter, the chief said.
‘The question my detectives have to answer is, “How does a confrontation lead to a homicide in 15 seconds?'” Stawinski told reporters outside a police station in Upper Marlboro.

Popeyes resumed selling its chicken sandwich on Sunday. It was first released in August, and the chain credited popular demand to its supply selling out that month.
Marketing around the sandwich has built a frenzy that’s causing long lines at the chain’s restaurants. Stawinski said dozens of people were at the restaurant at the time.
Police released surveillance camera images of the suspect and a woman who apparently was with him inside the restaurant and fled with him in a car after the stabbing. Investigators want to speak with that woman.
‘We think she has some pretty vital information to the investigation,’ said police department spokeswoman Jennifer Donelan.

Stawinski said there is no evidence that the suspect and victim knew each other.
Police found a knife in Davis’ possession after the stabbing, but investigators don’t believe he brandished it during the confrontation.
Davis, of Oxon Hill, died at a hospital. He had been stabbed once in the upper body, the police spokeswoman said.
On Tuesday, a women in California attempted to cut in line at a local drive-thru but inadvertently ended up destroying her own car.
The moment was captured on video by a number of perplexed diners at a Los Angeles branch of the eatery, who can be heard laughing at the unidentified motorist throughout the incident.
The woman, driving an early 2000s silver Mercedes, can been seen trying to force her vehicle between a pillar and in front of another car in the line.
Despite the opening being quite obviously too narrow for her car to fit through, the woman advances regardless, purposely scraping the passenger side of her car against the concrete post.

As bystanders call out that she’s ‘f***ing [her] sh*t up,’ she backs up and grinds her car against the same post again, before shunting forward and colliding with another vehicle.
‘It’s never that serious,’ someone can be heard calling out in the background. ‘All this for a chicken sandwich,’ another adds.
A worker from Popeyes approaches the driver and tells her she’s forbidden from placing an order at the restaurant due to attempting to cut the line and causing a scene at the drive-thru.
The woman continues to grind her vehicle against the concrete pillar with dents forming on both of the passenger doors and the car’s side-skirting starting to fall away.
On Thursday, a man shouted the N-word directly in another man’s face inside a Popeyes in Maryland, and was forced to apologize after he was beaten up in the parking lot.
In the video, the man is seen standing at the counter waiting for his food when he is heard yelling the N-word and other expletives at a young black man.

The man is heard screaming ‘f**k you’ before saying: ‘F**king n***er-a** motherf****r, f**king get out of my way!’
Despite the man’s screaming, the young man stares him down even after the racist guy lunges at him.
The man is then seen grabbing his bag of chicken and walking through a crowd of black people, saying: ‘Get the f**k outta my way.’
The clip then cuts to the moment the man was beaten up outside the fast-food chain.
He is seen sitting on the concrete as a man stands over him while holding the back of his shirt.
‘Who you callin’ a n****r?’ a black man is heard saying to the white man before punching him in the face.
‘Do you know where the f**k you at n***a? You in my hood!’ the man says as he throws the racist man around on the sidewalk.
At one point a Popeyes employee is seen attempting to break up the beating, but to no avail.
Popeyes announced that their infamous spicy chicken sandwich was fully restocked over the weekend after the fast-food chain ran out of the sandwich two months ago.
And ever since their announcement, stores across the US have erupted in chaos with people desperately trying to grab one of the apparently tasty sandwiches.

Videos started circulating last Sunday of people throwing tantrum’s over the sandwiches. One man at a crowded Harlem location screamed at staff because he felt they were taking to long for his order of 10 sandwiches
Videos started circulating last Sunday of people throwing tantrum’s over the sandwiches. One man at a crowded Harlem location screamed at staff because he felt they were taking to long for his order of 10 sandwiches.
Down in Florida, wild photos and videos from a Popeyes at Union Park showed a pair of customers pushing their broken down car through the drive thru in a bid to get their hands on the viral feast.
The $3.99 meal, which comes in classic and spicy, debuted for the first time in August and was met with a frantic craze that led to long lines and fist fights at several restaurants. The sandwich sold out in a matter of just two weeks.
The fast-food joint announced the the crispy chicken was back on the menu on Sunday tweeting: ‘This is not a drill… We’re fully stocked.’
After two months of waiting for Popeyes’ highly-popular chicken sandwich to return, fans started to line up for the sandwich before stores opened at 10am.
On Sunday the lines began before restaurant doors even opened and social media users were quick to share videos and photos of the craze.
One man shared a video of a line outside a Popeyes in Savannah, Georgia going out the parking lot and wrapping around the street. Another man shared a similar scene where the line stretched along a highway in Orlando, Florida.
The Popeyes sandwich was a part of a ‘Chicken Wars’ between several fast food restaurants – including Chick-fil-A which is notably closed on Sundays – fighting for the best chicken sandwich.
The summer craze saw customers become outraged as the sandwich quickly sold out in locations across the nation, sparking fights between costumers and Popeyes costumers.
In one August viral video incident at an unknown location an irate Popeyes customer jumped through a drive-thru window to fight with three employees, angry that there were no more chicken sandwiches left at that location.
Another furious brawl broke out in Brooklyn in August when customers stood in line for an hour and were outraged to learn that the chain ran out. An argument escalated to the point where a Popeye’s employee was injured.
