Story of Girl Getting Kicked Out of KFC Is a Hoax

Bad Grandma! Woman Allegedly Lied About Girl Getting Kicked Out of KFC

The world may have been quick to judge Kentucky Fried Chicken. After stories surfaced that an employee at a Mississippi location asked Victoria Wilcher to leave because of her facial scars, the company investigated the claims. What it found were the ingredients to an extralarge lie.

In reviewing surveillance tapes from the day of the alleged incident, investigators noticed neither Victoria, her grandmother Kelly Mullins, nor anyone resembling the two appears in the footage. There is also no record of the food that Kelly claims she ordered that day.

Although the investigation is still ongoing, many believe Kelly made up the story to receive financial aid for her granddaughter. Following the release of the story, the Wilcher family received an outpouring of support and donations, which included free reconstructive surgeries from doctors and a $30,000 donation from the KFC corporation. Both KFC and Kelly have stayed silent on the issue, but one employee took to Facebook to express his thoughts on the potential hoax.


"At this point their story is full of holes," writes Dick West, a KFC owner. "Any thinking person who follows their timeline can see it. The event at KFC never happened."

If the grandma did do this, then that`s horrible but if she didn`t and the story is true then some of you are going to feel like "scumbags" for lashing out at her. After all isn`t that what was done to KFC to begin with. Remember, KFC is the ONE doing the investigation not the police!. Js.

This is a sad story whichever way we look at it. I'm not sure what drove the grandma to lie for her treatment, but if it was just lack of funds and the over-the-top medical expenses as they stand today, we need to be alarmed. No one should have to lie to get money for treatment !


You know we can call the grandma many names, but did we stop to think that this was the only way that she thought that she could get help for this little angel. I'm not saying she was right all I'm saying is that maybe she didnt know any other way to get help for her grandchild. I pray all those that have come forward will not punish the child by retracting their assistance as she does not deserve that. The child is the innocent party here. I'm sure that she (grandma) approached many ppl for assistance and was turned down before she thought of this idea.

She was obtaining money to help with surgeries not to make herself a windfall of cash. Community service would be a much wiser idea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's called fraud, and it's called obtaining money under false pretenses. These are felonies. And Granny apparently has a history of this.

I wondered this myself actually....

YES what she did is VERY wrong & hurtful to the staff of KFC but jail time for a grandmother who was grasping at straws to help her grandbaby & made a bad choice. Maybe community service but jail time..gee's come on now...

Can I ask how you know grandma is taking soul care?? I believe that the family may live with grandma & since the little one's mommy had just had a baby my guess is grandma took her to help out the new mom. I do not agree with what grandma did at all but I do not believe for one moment that she did this for any other reason than helping her grandbaby get the proper medical care for her injuries. It is just plain sad all around!

I'm not saying the grandma didn't invent the whole thing, but then again it wouldn't be the first time a big multli-national company tampered with evidence and made up fabrications of their own for damage control. I think that KFC are about the dodgiest of dodgy companies as it is.
