It has been revealed that the story about a little girl, Victoria Wilcher, who was allegedly asked to leave a KFC in Jacksonville over her facial scars, was a complete hoax!
According to sources with deep knowledge of the investigation, the incident involving Wilcher and the popular fast-food chain, which resulted in the family receiving more than $135,000 in cash, as well as gifts and free surgeries, was completely fabricated.
The investigation is still open and no one from KFC would comment on the new allegations, but they released the following statement on Friday: “We continue to take this report seriously, and of course have great sympathy for Victoria and her family.
“Since we have so far not been able to verify the incident in our internal investigation, we have also hired a third-partyconsultant to conduct an independent investigation to help us resolve this matter,” Jackson franchise owner Kirk Hannon said in a statement reported by WJTV.
“We have always prided ourselves on respect for all people and we will continue to emphasize this to all our employees. In addition, regardless of the outcome of the current investigation, KFC Corporation has committed $30,000 to assist with Victoria’s medical bills. Along with the KFC Corporation, we are determined to get to the truth and address the situation appropriately.” source
