Re: KFC DITCHES SLOGAN -COVID

I don't see what's wrong with "finger lickin' good."  Don't people wash their hands before and after eating Kentucky Fried Chicken?  If not, well, maybe "finger lickin'" shouldn't have been their tagline all along.

Maybe Cheetos will be next and put out a public health warning not to eat the orange dust off your fingers! That is far more tempting than chicken grease!

@Pearlee  This is like politically correct  on steroids!!!!!!!!!! Licking the fingers after eating chicken is ike Cheeto dust, you just have to do it.

I think KFC needs to worry about updating their CREEPY commercials rather than their slogan, YES, ITS RIDICULOUS!!!... But I think someone was right, probably the recommendation of KFC's Corporate Attorney to prevent any type of lawsuits which claim that KFC encouraged the practice of "finger lickin'", therefore, that caused the plaintiff to get or spread the virus...You've seen these "nuisance lawsuits" and how prevalent they are these days.....What's next????.....Will Charmin change their slogan because they are afraid someone will sue Charmin because they didn't "enjoy the go......."

Pathetic that they did this. Why? Because, and I'm willing to bet a buck, that lawyers told them to because SOME IDIOT out there will sue and claim it was KFC's fault (that they have COVID) for saying it was ok to lick their fingers.

 

SMH at the stupidity in this country.

I think you guys are overreacting and taking this way too personally.

Here's what ya do for that - 

 

I love my crunchy Cheetos, but that orange dust is brutal.  So, I keep one of my disposable gloves in the L&L where I keep the bag of Cheetos and put that on one hand so no dust.  Works great!  Smiley Happy

 

Speaking of Cheetos - how funny is that one commercial with the family and the dad puts up a blue light (or something) that shows the wife and kids all have orange dust all over them, then it pans down to the cat who also does.  Husband:   When did we get a cat?   Smiley Very Happy Smiley Very Happy   Very cute.

Re: KFC DITCHES SLOGAN -COVID

KFC, really?  Why in the world this environment would have you stop a decades long slogan escapes me. I know many common sense challenged adults, but I can't see stopping your slogan making a whiff of a difference when it comes to the essence of your slogan.

 

Yet another casualty, albeit maybe temporary, to this ***** virus. For me, if I ate any type of meat or fowl, to not know where my own fingers have been?  Some may see this as a "great move", I see it as move to placate a certain segment, which I will leave unnamed.
