KFC Responds To Allegations That A Restaurant Employee Asked Little Girl With Scars On Face To Leave Establishment
KFC is investigating allegations that a restaurant employee in Jackson, Mississippi asked the family of this little girl, Victoria Wilcher, to leave the establishment because the scars on her face were scaring other customers.
The alleged incident was documented on the Facebook page "Victoria's Victories," and since then has gone viral. Now, we know that KFC is investigating the allegation, but the franchise has also now pledged $30,000 to Victoria Wilcher's charity to help her family pay her medical bills, according to media reports.
This message was posted on the Facebook page seeking support for the three-year-old: "Last week at KFC in Jackson MS this precious face was asked to leave because her face scared the other diners. I personally will never step foot in another KFC again and will be personally writing the CEO."
In addition to that post, here is the full story from the Facebook page describing what happened to this precious little girl:
"In April 2014 while visiting with her grandfather Victoria was the victim of a tragic pit bull attack. The 3 dogs involved where put down immediately by the owner. Victoria had bites all over her body but the most damage was to her sweet little face. She had a broken upper and lower jaw, broken nose, cheek bones and right eye socket. She lost her right eye completely and the ability to move the right side of her face. They have reconstructed her bottom jaw but cant do anymore surgeries until she grows new bone in her face due to the fact that the broken pieces are to small to piece together. She is currently at home with a feeding tube, but doing amazing. She has already graduated from physical therapy but continues to see a speech and swallow therapist weekly. Victoria's family is struggling financially due to the fact that the insurance company is refusing to pay for many of her medicines or the ambulance bill. Please continue to pray for Victoria and for God to make a way financially. "
