Report: Story about injured girl asked to leave KFC was a hoax

JACKSON, Miss. (WITI) -- The outrage came hard and fast after a three-year-old girl badly scarred  due to a pit bull attack was allegedly asked to leave a KFC. However, now it appears that some of the circumstances about Victoria Wilcher being asked to leave a Mississippi KFC due to facial scars are untrue, according to the Laurel Leader-Call.

Victoria Wilcher was mauled by three pit bulls a few months ago, causing her to need regular medical treatment.

Earlier this month, it was reported that a KFC worker asked three-year-old Victoria Wilcher to leave the restaurant because her face scared other diners.

Following the alleged incident, Victoria's family created a Facebook page based on the complaints. KFC immediately responded and said it would donate $30,000 to help with the girl’s medical bills.

After the allegations were made, KFC hired investigators to look into the incident and found no evidence that the girl was ever at the restaurant.

The Leader-Call reports that KFC store security video does not show Wilcher nor her grandmother in the KFC where they claimed the incident occurred.

Additionally, KFC receipts fail to show the "mashed potato and sweet tea"order the family claims they made on the day in question.

“When the allegation was first made, KFC pledged $30,000 to go to medical expenses and started an investigation to find the truth,” KFC franchisee owner Dick West posted on social media over the weekend. “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.”
