No question that the employee was an insensitive jerk. But was what he did
against the law? I don't think so. And yes, I think KFC gave
them the money to forestall a lawsuit. How sad that we live in a
country where every citizen has the right to an education but not to medical
This story touched me to tears. I have a little girl that has gone through quite
a bit of medical procedures for her heart and I know how precious these kids
are. She has scars from her many surgeries and also has a feeding tube. I'm
amazed at the amount of pain she has had to endure but yet she is so happy and
playful similarly to this little girl based on her big smile. I just want to
wrap her in my arms and comfort her, letting her know she's loved. I hope
we all think twice before we say something that would offend these incredible
kids who've been through so much! I am definitely blessed to have my
daughter in my life...
I don't blame KFC, but that employee does need to be fired. He was not
just "expressing his opinions", he told her she had to leave due to her
appearance. That is discrimination and is unacceptable. Who does that to
someone, especially a 3-year-old?!Victoria, you are a beautiful
child! I don't think your face is scary at all and anyone who thinks so
has no heart. I really hope this one incident doesn't affect you for the
rest of your life, because that employee is the ugly one, not you!
Congratulations to KFC for offering to help Victoria's family with her
medical expenses.What a tragic incident for a beautiful child who
has already been through so much. An excellent reminder for each of us to look
at others with love, compassion and empathy instead of judgement.
Pit bulls should be banned from the country. If the owners don't like it,
then they can go with their dogs.
Another reason to ban pitt bulls. Seeing what one of those vicious dogs did to
her is heart breaking.
Shame on the people who asked the employee to ask this little sweetheart to
leave; and shame on the employee for not telling the people that they would not
participate in their prejudice! I hope all those involved are never in an
accident and never disabled! If they are I hope their friends and family are
more compassionate. Something has to happen to the employee. Otherwise they
will continue to see this as appropriate behavior. I hope they don't get
fired, they would lose their income and that would probably hurt more than just
them. It would be nice if the employee volunteered to be this wonderful little
girls caregiver for however long it would take to feel kindness and compassion,
not pity and revulsion. I love you and have friended your facebook page! I think
your eyepatch is very cool! Those people at KFC are just jealous cause they
don't have an eyepatch.
I applaud the investigation but that and a $30,000 donation is simply a means to
stop a lawsuit.
@ BubbleExpressing an opinion does not make one immune from
consequences. This employee is ridiculous for hurting a little girl who had
already suffered a very traumatic experience and that said employee should be
shown the door (if it hasn't occurred already).
The employee should absolutely and immediately be fired for their comments. Not
only are there laws against this, but decency dictates that the employee must be
disciplined and fired.
This employee was just expressing his opinion. I hope we have learned from
Firefox and other companies and he doesn't get fired for this.
Seems clear KFC handled this perfectly and one KFC employee handled it horribly.
Well done KFC and poor job KFC employee.
