KFC ‘Kicks Out’ Young Pit Bull Dog Bite Victim
A Facebook page titled “Victoria’s Victories” was created after Victoria Wilcher suffered a severe Pit Bull dog bite in April. The Victoria’s Victories page follows the medical updates for 3-year-old pit bull dog bite victim Victoria Wilcher. The “Victoria’s Victories” page administrator posted a photo showing Victoria smiling in spite of her facial scars and a cartoon-decorated eye patch. Under the photo she wrote, “Does this look scary to you? Last week at KFC in Jackson MS this precious face was asked to leave because her face scared the other diners.”
Last week, Victoria’s grandmother took the dog attack victim her to a Kentucky Friend Chicken in Jackson Mississippi after a doctor’s visit. She stated she ordered a large sweet tea and some mashed potatoes and gravy for Victoria because she was hungry.
A KFC employee then stated to the Pit Bull Dog Bite victim’s grandmother, “We have to ask you to leave because her face is disrupting our customers.”
Her grandmother continued to say that Victoria cried all the way home and the experience has made her self-conscious.
“The right side of her face is paralyzed. She’s got a lot of surgeries to go through and she won’t even look in the mirror anymore. When we go to a store, she doesn’t even want to get out (of the car). She’s 3 years old and she’s embarrassed about what she looks like. She’s embarrassed and I hate it because she shouldn’t be. It ain’t her fault.” added the grandmother of the Pit Bull dog bite victim.
On the Facebook Victoria’s Victories Facebook page it states that Victoria’s injuries included a broken upper and lower jaw, broken nose, cheek bones and right eye socket and lost her right eye from the attack. Her bottom jaw has been reconstructed and additional surgeries await. The family is struggling financially and the Facebook report asks for prayers and support, a far cry from what they received at KFC.
KFC is now offering Victoria Wilcher, the Pit Bull dog bite victim, $30,000 for medical bills. KFC posted an apology statement after the incident with the Pit Bull dog bite victim. The KFC corporate offices issued an apology to the family, and released a statement saying: “We have zero tolerance for any kind of hurtful or disrespectful actions toward our guests…” and are “committed to doing something appropriate for this beautiful little girl and her family.”
The page’s administrator wrote Sunday that “Victoria’s Victories” had gone from 250 people praying for Victoria to thousands. The page had more than 32,500 “likes” on Sunday.
