Have you ever been mauled by a pit bull? The dog kind, not the guy that destroys my inner ear canal every time “Timber” comes on the radio. It’s arguable which kind of pit bull assault is worse, but 3-year-old Victoria Welcher has been attacked by both. The little girl was mauled by three pit bulls a couple of months ago, causing her to require multiple surgeries and constant medical treatment. After visiting one of her doctors last week, she and her grandmother stopped at a KFC for lunch. Normal, right? Just some good ol’ fried chicken and bouncing toddlers out of the restaurant for having disruptive faces…wait, what?
“‘I ordered a large sweet tea and her some mashed potatoes and gravy because she was hungry’…
“She was on a feeding tube at the time, but I figured she could just swallow (the potatoes). They just told us, they said, ‘We have to ask you to leave because her face is disrupting our customers.’ (Victoria) understood exactly what they said.’
Victoria cried all the way home, Mullins said.”
Ah yes, the “I’m sorry but everyone in this restaurant is too STOOPID to mind their own business” excuse. It’s not like you’re at someplace classy like Applebees (har). Your food came to you in TISSUE paper for fuck’s sake, if something’s bothering you then wrap it up and gtfo. Of course the fancy-pantsers at KFC got right on their damage control grind once they were “notified”, aka they saw a giant shitnado heading for corporate offices.
“‘As soon as we were notified of this report Friday, we immediately began an investigation, as this kind of hurtful and disrespectful action would not be tolerated by KFC,’ the company said. ‘Regardless of the outcome of our investigation, we have apologized to Victoria’s family and are committed to assisting them.'”
What is there to investigate? You chose to staff an entire restaurant (and I’m using that term loosely here) with people who thought kicking out a traumatized dog attack victim was perfectly cool, maybe even a good idea. 90% of the population has never run a fast food joint in their lives, but I’m sure 100% would think twice before kicking out a toddler.
