JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI., — A 3-year-old girl was asked to leave a KFC allegedly because her face was scaring other customers.
You may ask yourself, how could a little girl’s face scare customers away? Victoria Wilcher,3, was attacked by a pit bull at her grandfather’s home in Simpson County. The attack left her faced extremely scarred and partially paralyzed.
One day after a doctor’s visit, Victoria’s grandmother, Kelly Mullins, took her to a Jackson KFC to eat because she was hungry. According to Mullins, a KFC employee approached them and stated “We have to ask you to leave because her face is disrupting our customers.”
Victoria’s grandmother says when they go out, she doesn’t even want to be seen because she’s embarrassed about what she looks like.
KFC spokesman Rick Maynard stated:
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 have been in touch with the family and are committed to doing something appropriate for this beautiful little girl and her family. We will also work with the franchisee to take appropriate action at the restaurant once the specifics of the incident are determined,
Victoria is said to be on antibiotics and still has more surgeries scheduled during her rehabilitation.
