An employee at a Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen in Chicago was caught on video destroying the store after he was allegedly not paid for a month of work.
TikTok user Sarah (@itsrah26) posted on Tuesday a now viral video of the unidentified man cutting open bags and boxes of food, and other damage in the fast food restaurant. As of Thursday morning, the video had nearly 101,000 views.
The text included in the video says, “this is what happens when you don’t get paid for a month.”
At the beginning of the video, the man is seen cutting open a bag of raw chicken and dumping the pieces on the ground. In the next clip, you can see opening boxes of French fries and tossing the food on the floor.

A third clip shows what appears to be a completely destroyed stockroom with overturned shelves, opened boxes and flipped over bins.
Various foods and liquids can be seen covering most of the floor.
The pictures following the video clips show damage to the registers and cut electric cords.
The final video clip reads “at least he got his money” while showing an empty cash drawer on the counter and panning to the window where police officers and a Chicago police vehicle can be seen outside the restaurant.

In the video’s comments section, which has over 400 contributions, a handful of TikTok users seemed to understand the destruction and even said they would do something similar given the situation.
“A whole month? I’m on his side,” one user wrote.
Another said, “Well, he went ballistic. Rightfully so though.”
Other users commented that he responded in the wrong way, suggesting he should have quit much sooner, reported that he wasn’t getting paid, or hired lawyers and sued the company.
“I understand his anger, but now he definitely won’t get paid,” one comment said. “This is a corporation. He could’ve sued and got a nice settlement check.”
Other commenters wrote: “I mean now you definitely not gone get paid and probably gone have to owe in damages,” and “Unfortunately, you will have to pay now. You should’ve got a lawyer or contacted the bored labor (sic) .”
