Have you eaten the famous Popeye's Chicken sandwich yet? Well a man in jail has . . . and he Livestreamed it to his fans.

A photo of a prisoner eating a Popeyes chicken sandwich from behind bars has gone viral on Facebook - it's already been viewed by 5,000,000 people.

The images, which you can see above, show the inmate enjoying the infamous $3.99 chicken sandwich - which has sold out across America.

'Trying to see what all the hype bout,' the man writes on the image, which first was posted on Instagram Stories.  The inmate can be seen sitting on a prison cot. He's appears ready to chow down on the food, but poses for the quick Insta-flick before taking a bite.

A follow up picture is captioned: 'Thanks Bae.'

The images were reportedly taken from a New York man named Frank Gutta's page. It's not clear in which prison facility he's currently incarcerated.
