Disfigured Girl, 3, Asked To Leave KFC — Was It A Hoax?

Tue, June 24, 2014 12:47pm EDT by 18 Comments

The troubling story of how a KFC employee asked a little girl to leave the restaurant because of her ‘disturbing’ scars from a pit bull attack may have been a hoax all along. How upsetting.

Victoria Wilcher, 3, lost her right eye and suffered severe tissue damage to her face after being attacked by three pit bulls. Her grandmother, Kelly Mullins, later claimed that they were asked to leave a KFC restaurant during their meal solely because of Victoria’s scars, which helped the little girl’s story go viral. However, investigators believe that even though Victoria’s scars are real, the KFC story may have been fabricated.

KFC Hoax: Little Girl Asked To Leave Was Never In The Restaurant

This is unbelievable.

Could Victoria’s grandmother have lied about being kicked out of a KFC just to get her granddaughter attention?

While Victoria’s injuries and scars from being attacked by 3 pit bulls are real, the story about her being asked to leave a KFC restaurant in  Jackson, Mississippi has not been confirmed by investigators, reports ABC.

Rick Maynard, the KFC spokesman, has revealed that investigators have not been able to confirm whether or not Victoria was ever in the restaurant where her grandmother claims they were asked to leave by an employee. Reports claim that the location has reviewed security camera footage, but they have had no luck finding Victoria or the incident on tape.

“I promise its not a hoax, I never thought any of this would blow up the way it has,” Victoria’s aunt, Teri Rials Bates, wrote on the Victoria’s Victories Facebook page. “I have personally watched this family go without to provide for Victoria. They have not and would not do anything to hurt Victoria in any way.”

Thankfully, despite the outcome of KFC’s investigation, Victoria will be able to keep the $30,000 they donated for her medical bills.

Supporters Donated Thousands, While Doctors Donated Surgeries

After the story about Victoria being kicked out of a KFC went viral, internet supporters turned out by the thousands to help raise money for her medical bills.

The family set up a GoFundMe page which has a goal of $200,000, and as of June 24 $134,300.00 has been raised.

A Las Vegas, Nev. doctor flew to Jackson to meet with Victoria, and offered to donate his plastic surgery services to help with her scars.

“I saw Victoria’s story on the news and social media and I was just very affected by it,” Dr. Frank Stile told KHON.

Raymond Peter, a prosthetician from Naples, Fla., also planned to donate a prosthetic eye for Victoria.

There is no word on whether or not any of the donors or doctors will be revoking their offers due to the alleged hoax.

KFC donated $30k for the little girl’s medical bills because they felt sorry about their stupid mistake.

I’m so shocked there is no racial name calling but had this been a black family there would be many comments with the n word, or so many hateful comments that are spewed about black people when we do not like what they do.

Just because someone mentioned fried chicken you’re going to induce racial stereotypes?!? …. wow! you seriously have no brain! I’m Caucasian, & love fried chicken as much as I love potatoes & protein! There isn’t a KFC within 1 hour & 1/2 of me any direction… and still yet I manage to consume fried chicken w/out applying any type of racial profiling (other than it’s delicious as long as the person who’s cooking knows what theyre doin no matter their race) … brainless people like you are the reason why our tyrant of a president is getting away with overthrowing congress, and completely throwing out the constitution! its time you wake up! …oh wait, I don’t care for Obama, so does that make me racist too? lol

Kohler, I did not make it a race issue because a race has nothing to do with ethnicity. I was stating the obvious about how some of us caucasians will quickly spew hate and use the n word and other hate speech when people of color do things like this.

KFC could have erased the tape, so they don’t look bad.
Either way the little girl needs the help and is getting it.

@DD, don’t put words in my mouth.
And for the record I have NEVER! been arrested.
A big franchise like KFC doesn’t want to look bad, so it would be in their best interest to not! find anything on their camera.
The little girl still needed the help and is getting it.
Case closed!

It wasn’t a hoax it was a calculated lie to get money from people who felt sorry for them.

The family dogs attacked and deformed this little girl so there was no one to sue for medical bills and this is a white trash family to begin with, so they defamed Kentucky fried chicken and their workers for sympathy from the public to get them to donate money to them and it worked like a charm because they have had over 140,000 collected from the public, 30,000 donated from Kentucky friend chicken and 2 surgeons donating an eye for the girl and doing reconstructive surgery for free. Too bad they had to hurt innocent people in the process, maybe they should have just asked for help and not made up a hurtful lie. A public apology is definitely in order, though, they have to apologize for this outright lie and misleading the public.

The first thing this family did was post the lie ON FACEBOOK AND SET UP A DONATION SITE. That should have been the first clue that it was all a scam for money.

If the video surveillance doesn’t show them in the restaurant and there is no orders on the record of the purchase the grandmother said she purchased, then she made up a hateful story about a worker doing something she never did and put negative attention on the Kentucky friend chicken for something they never did. How shameful, what did she do it for? All the hundreds of thousands of donations they’ve received? I think the grandma needs to be arrested for this, it’s unforgiveable.

Didn’t see coming? You mean from the same family that thought it was a good idea to have TEN PIT BULLS as playmates for a 3 year old kid? No, I never would have thought they would sink this low…

It is disgursting that the Kentucky Fried chicken got so much hate thrown on them for something they never did. The grandmother needs to be arrested and charged, but the little girl should be able to keep the donations the public has given her for her medical bills. I believe the grandmother did it so they could get people to donate money and she got what she wanted, but she defamed a business in the process and that is not right. There isn’t any video of the girl or her grandmother EVER being in that restraunt. SHE LIED for money.
