Not all heroes where capes. Yesterday news broke that the parent company for beloved Roscoe's Chicken & Waffles had filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy protection and fear started to spread that regulars wouldn't be able to get their delicious meal of chicken and waffles all in one spot. However one man appears poised to pick up the pieces and save the legions of those who could be affected by this - the Doggfather, Snoop Dogg.
Last night TMZ caught up with Snoop and members of his team in the way they only know how, aggressively and with a camera right in their face to asked them about the bankruptcy.
The members of his team who were asked first didn't know what had happened and failed to give much of a response. Snoop appears after 30 second and also has the befuddled and scared look that one of his favorite eateries may be going under.
After the initial shock wears off, the quick-thinking MC offers a solution that many would be happy to hear and potentially see happen - buy up the company. "I'm guess I'm gonna have to name it Snoop Dogg's Chicken N' Waffles," the Doggfather says before the scene cuts to black.
A marriage of Snoop and Roscoe's wouldn't be the most outrageous thing in the world. He took Larry King there on an interview in 2008 for CNN, while the eatery has a strong place in hip-hop lore, finding its way into the tracks of Biggie and others.
The news that Roscoe's parent company is filing for bankruptcy has taken many by surprise, but the warning signs have been there. The waffle house was ordered to pay an ex-employee 1.6 million from a jury verdict and $1.5 million in attorney fees after they were found guilty of discrimination in a wrongful termination lawsuit acording to KTLA.
