He also has added, “It will be on me. I know you all think it’s funny here when he talks about Popeyes and all that bullshit. It does not please me to hear. We are top athletes.

And as soon as Towns said that, Popeye’s official chicken Twitter account tweeted, “Good luck to all the top athletes who eat Popeyes, no matter what their teammates say.” Fans couldn’t help but react to this.

A fan tweeted, “Done,” while another fan commented: “Why? They’re about to test positive for a new performance-enhancing drug you’re using in your chicken? What’s Really In That Spivey Chicken Sandwich That Started A War? »

Even Minnesota Timberwolves broadcaster Michael Grady tweeted, “Savage for that.”
