I just saw this on our local news tonight...They were interviewing the grandmother and she stated that her and her granddaughter were asked to leave KFC as her granddaughter's appearance was making it difficult for the other customers....I just can't imagine something like this happening!....It was also mentioned that KFC is offering $30,000 to cover medical expenses for the granddaughter.

Were there any witnesses or are they just talking the grandmother's word?


Nothing was mentioned about witnesses...and I would also be interested in knowing if KFC has actually made an official statement about this?

KFC posted an apology the next morning, requesting details.

"As soon as we were notified of this report on Friday, we immediately began an investigation, as this kind of hurtful and disrespectful action would not be tolerated by KFC," spokesman Rick Maynard wrote Sunday in an email to The Associated Press. "Regardless of the outcome of our investigation, we have apologized to Victoria's family and are committed to assisting them. The company is making a $30,000 donation to assist with her medical bills. The entire KFC family is behind Victoria."

Wow, that is very generous. I think they went above and beyond.

Unfortunately when you own a business, just one knuckle head can go and make an inappropriate comment and ruin years of hard work building a good reputation. I am not saying KFC has a good or bad reputation and ultimately the buck does stop with them but if I did eat there I would not consider boycotting them for one second. They have more than made up for it.

It is sad that one person could do such a thing to hurt such a sweet and innocent little girl and it is sad that one persons actions could hurt a company when they are obviously doing their best to make it right.

ITA, I wouldn't condemn the company for what one of their employees does.

ITA...these stories always end with a 'raised eyebrow ...who leaked this to the media IF it was true? Silly.

And when I mentioned she should use the drive thru, the saying "just because you can, doesn't mean you should" phrase came to mind. I guess I was raised with a little moral decorum...just because I can wear a tight t-shirt to Walmart, doesn't mean I can waltz in there with the same tight t-shirt, but wet & braless. Common sense.

Moral decorum??? Has anyone here actually looked at this little girl's pictures? There is no reason in this world why she should not go INTO a restaurant with her grandmother to get something to eat. Maybe it's fun for her to go to a restaurant, even if it's KFC, why should she be denied that because of someone's utter stupidity? She deserves whatever small pleasures she can get right now.{#emotions_dlg.confused1} And it wasn't leaked to the media-it went viral from Facebook, and I for one am glad it did.

I would agree with you if we were talking about a tight or wet t-shirt but we aren't even in the same ball park. I don't think a little girl needs to avoid going into the public for months and months until she recovers just because some losers don't have any sense or compassion at all. Should she avoid the public if she is left with horrible scars that don't fade or disappear?

I'm a tad confused with the 'moral decorum' statement as well. What's wrong with a child going to a restaurant?

NO!

It's the 21st century, news gets to us much faster than the old days.

Assuming the story is true, I think the wrong people were asked to leave the restaurant.
