It is very possible that the employees are protecting their behinds . . as we
all do when we have made a mistake. It is so public that most people would not
admit to something that could take them to court. It does not mean it did not
I worked for KFC and put myself through college. In no way would this be
considered acceptable by the company to treat any customer let alone a little
girl so rudely and I went through thorough training and I cannot see anybody
doing that who would want to even keep their job. I can easily see KFC being so
accommodating despite being lied about and putting this little girl before the
rotten thing the adults in her family did to try and get attention. I think one
thing people have picked up on in this era of the internet when stories like
this go viral is that if they have a sad story they can get not only sympathy
but money. I think the funds should be put in a trust for the girl for her
medical care and overseen by a trustee so it cannot be misused by her family. I
am glad for this child's sake people have stepped up to help her. Just
curious, does anybody know if it was the family's pit bull that attacked
her or did it belong to somebody else?
mrjj69What part of independent investigation do you not understand?
just because KFC didn't find anything wrong by investigating itself, does
not mean the grandmother was lying. it could just as easily a whitewash by KFC
to cover it up. sadly, the truth will probably never be known.
I would tend to agree that there's something fishy here.Really
classy of KFC to still pay the $30k for the little girl's sake though. I
may have to stop by there sometime again. Haven't had their chicken for
awhile, and I like to support businesses who do good things even when they
don't have to.
It is unfortunate that it appears this was a scam to try and reach the deep
pocket of KFC. To balance the apparent reward the perp gained by doing this,
local prosecutors should look into criminal charges for extortion, fraud or
other relevant crimes and charge the adults.
Maybe it wasn't a Pit Bull. Maybe it was a Toy Poodle. I'd actually
believe Chihuahua did it.
Screwdriver,Why do you think the parents motivation was the medical
bills? Something tells me with parents as messed up as this, and even though
they have medical bills, the parents had a lot more on their minds than just
wanting money for medical bills.
If they made it up they should be charged with slander. It's nice of KFC to
help with the medical bill though.Canadians are still shacking their
heads at how we pay our medical bill in the US. Parents resort to lying to get
enough sympathy to pay the medical bills? Sad day.
I know it is not directly related, but this was another Pit Bull attack? Time
to consider banning aggressive dog breeds?
If the parents of this child made this up they should be charged with extortion
and abuse of the child. putting this little girl through this kind of scrutiny
is equal child abuse. I hope the child is put into a home that would have her
properly cared for and shown the love and affection she deserves not to be used
as a pawn for the gain of wealth. Any money these people got should be put into
a trust for the child and the parents should never see a penny of it.
Hate to say it, but it looks like the grandmother made the story up, and now she
is being rewarded with not only $30,000 from KFC, but a plastic surgeon in Las
Vegas who has stepped forward and offered to help reconstruct the girl's
face for free - not that the sweet little girl doesn't deserve it.
@KostaYep Big Ben, that's how it looks like.
So they made it up and got rewarded.
Wow. People are so quick to jump to conclusions, especially when it involves big
bad companies with rich CEO's. But even the independent
investigation found nothing?Shame on this family if they made this
up! If they did this to drum up support for a lawsuit under false premises, I
wish KFC would sue them for defamationEvery news station in the
country had a story about how horrible KFC was when the story broke.If this family made it up they deserve to be sued for millions and
millions.And I'd be cheering for big bad KFC and their rich
