"Does this face look scary to you?"
A Jackson, Mississippi KFC has been accused of literally adding insult to injury by asking a tiny girl, her face disfigured from a recent pit bull attack, to leave the restaurant.
The reason: her appearance was apparently scaring other customers.
The girl's family struck back on Facebook, posting a picture of the little girl, Victoria, and asking, "Does this face look scary to you?"
The attack occurred in April, when a pit bull burst through the back door of Victoria's grandfather's mobile home and dragged Victoria outside where two more pit bulls joined in and mauled the girl.
KFC's social media team has reached out to the family, promising an investigation into the matter.
"Please accept our sincere apologies while we try to investigate this incident," the KFC account posted on Facebook. "We have zero tolerance for any kind of disrespectful behavior by our team members. Once we have further details, we will immediately investigate this and take action, and we wish nothing but the best for Victoria in her recovery."
The story has a definite upshot: the Victoria's Victories fundraising page, has seen a flood of donations pour in as the media covers the KFC incident.
Victoria lost her right eye completely in the attack, her family said, and she requires ongoing surgeries and other medical accommodations as she continues to recover.
Her fundraising page had nearly $15,000, out of a goal of $20,000, early Sunday morning.
