Report: Disfigured girl kicked out of KFC story a hoax

A new report suggests the story about a 3-year-old girl being kicked out of a KFC because her appearance was scaring other customers, may have been a hoax.

Victoria Wilcher was disfigured after she was mauled by three of her grandfather’s pit bulls.

Her grandmother claimed she and the girl were asked to leave a KFC in Mississippi last month.

But the Lauren Leader-Call in Mississippi is quoting an anonymous source close to the investigation, who claims the two never appear on any surveillance video from the restaurant.

Also, there are no receipts matching what they said they ordered.

The family has collected more than $135,000in cash, as well as gifts and free surgeries.

    Thankfully this gorgeous lil child will receive the needed surgeries from a reputable plastic surgeon. Then someone need to investigate how this child was injured. Initially we al wondered why the dog owners weren’t held financially responsible. Now, since much of this story is in question and reported by anonymous sources , maybe a further look is needed. Was this child injured by the family”pet”?

    KFC should sue the family for defamation. A story like this can hurt a companies reputation. It’s not the girls fault but it will still hurt KFC’s business. Ok, some may say they make tons of money anyway… FINE. But a scam like this is ok? When is it ok to lie and deceive people at the expense of another? Even if it is a big company which can clearly manage it but that’s not the point. So is it ok for me to play a hoax and scam $120,000 just because I need that money for surgery? It’s unfortunate what happened to the little girl but getting money in a dirty little scheme is unacceptable and I hope KFC does sue the family for damages that equate to at least double the $135,000. That will only make it right

    Its never OK to lie so heinously,a small childs grandmother used her. The thing is theres an innocent child involved who was mauled by dogs,most likely from no fault of her own. The story was a hoax and the family profited form it. KFC can definately afford the monetary loss BUT the child will benefit in a tremendous way,KFC lets her keep the , money and get surgery they look awesome in the public eye….look how they saved this child! Its a win win. They sue the family and the money goes away and the little girl is sad, her life is negativly impacted. KFC looks bad. Its a lose lose. Two wrongs dont make a right but sometimes you can right a wrong. Criminal charges against the family but in my opinion KFC corporation can help that little girl with surgery.
