Justin Bieber appeared unimpressed with the highly coveted Popeyes Chicken Sandwich. On November 7, the “Sorry” singer tried the fast food chain’s extremely popular item. After the taste test, Justin, 25, told his 121 million Instagram followers that the constantly sold-out sandwich isn’t “worth the hype.” The sandwich sold out in late August two weeks after its debut, and returned to the chain’s menu on November 3.

Justin took to his Instagram Story and showed off the three sandwiches and sweet tea he picked up from the chain. "All this hype on the Popeyes Chicken Sandwich, let me see what we got here," he said before taking a bite. “It’s good but it’s not worth the hype,” he revealed, after giving the sandwich a try.

Before it initially sold out over the summer, many celebrities tried to get their hands on one of the highly-coveted items. Cardi B struggled to find one of the sandwiches in her native New York, but was successful in California. “It’s 10:32 in the morning and I beat y’all to it. I finally got the goddamn chicken sandwich,” the Grammy winner declared on Twitter.
