A man, who has been identified as Mathonsi Sello, took to social media to fire shots at Chicken Licken for allegedly refusing to serve him tap water.
Last week, Sello visited Chicken Licken in Lyttleton, Centurion. He said he asked for tap water after he ordered his meal but the staff refused his request.
According to Sello, the staff member said it was against their policy because they sell bottled water.
"I spoke to Freddy who was the manager in charge and he referred me to Portia Zulu and she told me there is nothing she can do because that is how they operate," he wrote in the post.
Sello added one of the employees said they only do it to black people. Man's Not Barry Roux shared a screenshot of the post on his Twitter account and it sparked quite the reaction.
Briefly.co.za learned Chicken Licken has since responded to the post, adding they were aware about the complaint yet they stand by their policy that they do not serve customers tap water.
However, their response did not sit well with tweeps, who roasted the fast-food chain restaurant.
Meanwhile, Nando's saw an opportunity to do some marketing and throw shade at Chicken Licken at the same time.
