Was The Little Scarred Girl That Got Kicked Out Of KFC A Hoax?
You will recall the story about the little girl who was asked to leave KFC because of the scars on her face were scaring the other children.
Now it is being said that the whole KFC incident didn’t happen at all.
Three-year-old Victoria Welcher was scarred after an attacked by her grandfather’s pitbulls, then went on to gain viral status after it was reported that a KFC in Jackson, MS asked the little girl and her family to leave because of her appearance.
KFC apologized and donated $30,000 to help with Victoria’s Medical bills.
Before this story went viral the donations were at $595, but have now reached up to $135,000 or more.
The Laurel-Leader Call goes into detail that supports that this was just a big hoax.
The Official Victoria’s Victories Facebook Page recently made the following statement about this allegation.
No matter how this plays out, KFC stands by their donation.
Dick West, who is the president of West Quality Food, one of the largest franchisees in the KFC chain and the owner of the local KFCs, also declined comment. However, on Saturday night, he made his feelings quite clear on the Facebook page of a Jackson television station when he posted “When the allegation was first made, KFC pledged $30,000 to go to medical expenses and started an investigation to find the truth. They have pledged the money even if it is proven that the incident never happened. At this point their story is full of holes. Any thinking person who follows their timeline can see it. The event at KFC never happened.”
