KFC investigating claims of a child being asked to leave due to appearance

JACKSON, Miss. - KFC Corp. says it's investigating allegations that a restaurant employee in Jackson asked a 3-year-old girl to leave because her facial injuries disturbed other patrons.

The company is also giving $30,000 toward Victoria Wilcher's medical bills, a spokesman said Sunday.

The allegation about KFC was made Thursday on"Victoria's Victories," a Facebook page following Victoria Wilcher's recovery from a pit bull attack in April. The administrator posted a photo showing Victoria smiling shyly in spite of her facial scars and cartoon-decorated eye patch, and 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."
