Fried chicken dipped in COKE?! A US open fan's bizarre eating habit has disgusted tennis supporters who've called for her arrest
One fan of the US Open has sent many on social media into a frenzy by dipping a fried chicken strip into a cup of coke before she ate the piece. Alexa Greenfield, a model, was caught on camera literally soaking one end of the fried chicken strip she was eating into the soda and then ate it during the match that Madison Keys won against Dominika Cibulkova on September 3.
The shocked viewers have joked on social media and have said that she was a "psycho" and that she had to be "arrested." 26-year-old Greenfield has hope that the explanation she gave will help her get out of going to jail for her strange eating habit.
She told The Sun: "My dad started me with [dipping chicken strips in coke] I think to ‘cool’ it down, but I just loved the taste and kept going. Once I got older I gave it up for a while assuming it would be way too weird to bring it into adulthood. But one day I said ‘eff it,’ and re-started."

The model's two nephews, who were there next to her, were transfixed by her bizarre habit as she chowed down on her snack. She said: "The funny part is that this story starts with me telling my nephews, 'Listen, I am about to do something really weird. It is a huge secret, and you can't tell anybody. Don't tell your parents and don't tell any adults because it’s pretty embarrassing'. My sister was going to get [my nephews] food, so I was trying to do it quickly before she came back. Then I got caught by some cameraman, and now I'm viral."
Greenfield, who is a major supporter of Barcelona, admitted she does not dip her chicken into coke regularly and that she only does it when she is hungover. She did, however, mention that if she does do it, she will only dip in coke and not any other soda.
Most users have been left pretty weirded out by her strange food combination, and Greenfield has herself admitted that she had standards when it comes to food. She said: "I don’t drink the soda because, yes, it gets greasy. That’s too gross for me."
