    Bottom line we NEEED better grocery stores in our communities that sell fresher meat, fruits and vegetables so we can have access to better food options, instead of always going to filthy ass fast food places in order to eat.

    Roaches are clearly from your lack of care for your job, customers and health… your night crew doesn’t clean well, so the result is what we see in this video, managers seriously need to hire adults that are mature and know how to clean

    She needs to manage a new store and that locations needs to be set in fuego 🔥

  12. Nae West July 28, 2018 at 8:01 pm

    What she posted this people was coming at her saying that she should have just cleaned up and did her job. She's not a exterminator and nobody should have to work or live in these kind of conditions.

  13. Joyce Valentine July 28, 2018 at 8:01 pm

    I pray she get a better job! Thank for looking out for customers. I hope she can sue.

  14. Shawn Jones July 28, 2018 at 8:01 pm

    I'M SO GLAD THAT YOUNG TOOK A STAND & DID NOT BACK DOWN. WHEN HER MANAGER TOLD HER NOT TO SCREAM NOT TO DO ANYTHING. PEOPLE HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW WHAT IS GOING.

  23. Tobias Hills July 28, 2018 at 8:01 pm

    They go lose bussiness

  24. Chauntale Holloway July 28, 2018 at 8:01 pm

    For those who say she should have cleaned it up instead of recording obviously don't see how management obviously failed this location. She shouldn't have to clean up a mess Im sure she didn't create on her own. Im glad she complained but this is one of the many reasons I don't eat out!

  25. Elektriqa July 28, 2018 at 8:01 pm

    I think the young lady who highlighted this roach infestation deserves a pay rise and a fab holiday in a 5 star hotel . Weld one young lady for caring

  26. Rock Strong July 28, 2018 at 8:01 pm

    Lord have good mercy…I think I'mma raise my own veggies and meats…

    Hi Black People 👋👋

  30. Amanda Brookman July 28, 2018 at 8:01 pm

    Doesn't it take over 24 hours for Terminix to come in and spray lethal toxins. Then takes how long to clean? I hope the health department is on this ASAP. I was a secretary for Terminix and that's the only way to get rid of them. I'm sure you can call someone like Terminix. I bet Popeyes are making their employees sign a paper. Not to ever discuss insects in there restaurant now. How can you tell someone not to scream if a roach jumps on them? My opinion I will be screaming like hell.

  31. Est lhm July 28, 2018 at 8:01 pm

    So great that video can change a bad situation! Where it was just someone's word against theirs. They owe a lot of refunds to those who ate this nasty food! Yuck!! Should just stay closed

    All of these fast food places needs to be exposed. I applaud her for doing what she did it takes courage. Popeye has been exposed in several states & they still haven't gotten their shit together. I don't eat fast food haven't in over 5yrs now becuz of ppl exposing these trifling places. I rather cook at home. Stop feeding your children & family members this garbabe. You can't see behind the counters, you dont know what ppl are doing with your food just go to the grocery store & cook for your family at home. It's the safest thing to do. Again hats off to the young woman that recorded the video i hope others around the world expose their place of employment if they are nasty becuz it's not right to serve contaminated food to others. If you don't eat it why serve to others. You're a part of the problem so step up & be the solution. She needs a job as a health inspector I bet she close a lot of these places down or hire her to go under cover to different fast food places as an employee to bust these nasty MF'ers

    Really "roaches twerking in the sugar" 😂😂😂😂

  48. Mr. Big July 28, 2018 at 8:01 pm

    young lady should never be fired or reprimanded in any form or at any time for standing up in the right way, if she gets fired or reprimanded because of her stand _ whoever fired her and those who knew situation should be fired and she need to get paid out of their income; especially after she was ignored previously
