In a bid to support the recently bankrupt seafood chain, Flavor Flav made headlines by ordering the entire Red Lobster menu.

Taking to Instagram on Monday (June 3), the Public Enemy MC showed off a feast fit for a king, ordering every item imaginable, off the Red Lobster menu for his family.

According to the rapper’s team, Flav went to Red Lobster with his daughter and planned to return with his son for seconds, the very next day. He also expressed hopes of discussing a future collaboration with Red Lobster officials to help the franchise stay afloat during a time of need, per TMZ.

Moving over to X/Twitter, the rapper-turned-reality TV star continued his support for the casual seafood joint, assuring a worried fan that the chain “ain’t closing down just yet.”

According to the Associated Press, Red Lobster sought bankruptcy protection in May following the closure of numerous locations nationwide. Still, the company assured its commitment to keep the doors open for its 600 restaurants as they seek a buyer. “This restructuring is the best path forward for Red Lobster. It allows us to address several financial and operational challenges and emerge stronger and re-focused on our growth,” CEO Jonathan Tibus stated.

Court documents obtained by the outlet indicate that Red Lobster employs approximately 36,000 individuals across the United States and Canada — operating 551 U.S. eateries and 27 locations in Canada. Additionally, Red Lobster also boasts franchises in Thailand, Ecuador, Japan, and Mexico.
