3-year-old Asked To Leave KFC Because Scars Upset Other Diners
Victoria Wilcher, a 3-year-old girl from Harrisville, Mississippi, was attacked by three pit bulls in her grandfather’s house. She had surgery to fix her broken jaw, nose and cheek bones, and she lost her right eye. Victoria’s grandmother, Kelly Mullins, took the adorable 3-year-old to a KFC in Jacksonville to get something to eat after a doctor’s appointment. After ordering their food, Mullins alleges that a KFC employee asked them to leave because Victoria’s face was upsetting their diners.
Already self-conscious about her scars, Mullins says that Victoria cried the entire way home.
“She won’t even look in the mirror anymore. When we go to a store, she doesn’t even want to get out,” she said. “She’s 3-years-old and she’s embarrassed about what she looks like. She’s embarrassed, and I hate it because she shouldn’t be.”
After hearing of the allegation, KFC has since launched an investigation and has offered to donate toward Victoria’s medical bills.
Spokesman for KFC, Rick Maynard said, “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.”
