Child Scarred by Pit Bull Attack Asked to Leave KFC
Our NBC News partners at WXIA are reporting that a Facebook post on Victoria’s Victories says that at a Jackson KFC, a young child was asked to leave because her face scared the other diners.
Victoria’s Victories page follows the medical updates for 3-year-old pit bull attack victim Victoria Wilcher.
The girl’s photo shows Victoria bearing the facial scars of an April pit bull attack, and an eyepatch with a cartoon girl’s face.
KFC spokesman Rick Maynard said by email, “KFC launched an investigation as soon as we were made aware of this report. We take this very seriously, as we have zero tolerance for any kind of hurtful or disrespectful actions toward our guests. Our investigation is ongoing, but we will make things right for this beautiful little girl and her family, and will work with the franchisee to take appropriate action at the restaurant.”
And KFC @kfc tweeted this reply to a Clarion-Ledger staffer, “We are working hard to make this right for the family. We do not tolerate the behavior that happened in our restaurant.”
