"Your face is disrupting our customers" three year old girl asked to leave KFC

By: Teresa Sousa

  KFC Three year old Victoria Wilcher was attacked by three pit bulls when they burst through the trailer of her grandfather's house. The dogs broke her nose, both jaws, cheekbones and right eye socket. The right side of her face is paralyzed. She lost her right eye. She has undergone numerous surgeries and is definitely not out of the woods yet. After one of many doctor visits, Kelly Mullins, Victoria's grandmother, took the little girl to KFC in their hometown of Jackson, Miss. She thought an order of mashed potatoes would be a nice treat considering Victoria has been on a feeding tube since the accident. After taking their seats in the restaurant, Kelly was approached by an employee who said "We have to ask you to leave because her face is disrupting our customers." I couldn't believe what I was reading. "We have to ask you to leave because her face is disrupting our customers". I read that horribly hurtful sentence over and over again with my mouth agape. I just couldn't believe the lack of compassion. Although KFC has posted an apology and is giving $30,000 towards Victoria's medical bills, those harsh words uttered by that employee has caused irreparable damage to the little girl's self esteem. According to Victoria's grandma, she cried all the way home and is now embarrassed by her appearance - something that wasn't the case before. 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 three 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." My heart breaks for this little girl. She's already gone through so much during her short life. She will be suffering from the consequences of that dreadful day for the rest of her life - both physically and now, as she has learned all too soon - emotionally too. She's already been viciously attacked through no fault of her own. She doesn't deserve the verbal attacks too. UPDATE: Since writing this story, it has come to light that it was all a hoax. After numerous investigations, it was discovered that little Victoria and her grandmother never set foot in a Jackson KFC on May 15.  Please see the full story here.
