A Church's Chicken on Detroit's west side went viral over the weekend due to an interesting choice in decor: Instead of a typical glass door, the building is currently rocking a wooden door, just like the front door of someone's house.

Shantinique Brooks posted a photo of it on Twitter on Sunday, with the caption, "I'm moving out of Detroit. Because who put a house door on the Church's Chicken?"

The post quickly went viral, garnering more than 3,000 retweets and nearly 14,000 likes by Monday morning.

Other Twitter users began weighing in.

Soon, however, the tide of public opinion turned, and Twitter users agreed this was actually the best thing ever:

We stopped by the spot at 9137 Grand River Ave. to confirm the door situation was in fact the case. An employee told Metro Times that someone ran their car through the door.

Clearly, this west side Church's Chicken is going through some shit right now, so please be nice to them.
