The Claim That a Scarred Little Girl Was Kicked Out of KFC is Likely a Hoax
When I first heard the story about the little girl who was kicked out of the KFC, I was appalled! Now I am hearing that the whole story may be a hoax and I am even more appalled.
Here is how it began, back in April 3 year old Victoria Wilcher, was attacked by three of her grandpa's pit bulls.
Victoria suffered a shattered top and bottom jaw, broken cheekbones and eye sockets, a broken nose, lost her right eye, and lost the ability to move the right side of her face. She was in the hospital for a month after the attack. Her aunt set up a Facebook page to let people know how Victoria is doing.
On May 15, Victoria's grandmother claims, she and Victoria were asked to leave a Jackson , Mississippi KFC, after one of the employees told them the little girls scars were scaring other customers.
After that story got out donations began pouring in to Victoria's Go Fund Me Account. Before the KFC story, the site had raised only $600, but since KFC became the bad guy, more than $135,000 has been raised.
KFC also donated $30,000 towards Victoria’s charity while promising to pay for an independent review to find out what happened.
According to an unidentified source, that review has turned up evidence that the incident NEVER happened.
Dick West, the owner of the KFC’s, in Jackson posted this on the Facebook page of a Jackson television station. "When the allegation was first made, KFC pledged $30,000 to go to medical expenses and started an investigation to find the truth. They have pledged the money even if it is proven that the incident never happened. At this point their story is full of holes. Any thinking person who follows their timeline can see it. The event at KFC never happened."
We are still waiting for an official press release from the company.
Meanwhile a plastic surgeon has offered his help to Victoria at no charge.
