    KFC offered $30,000 towards her medical bills at the same time they announced they were investigating. As of today, they have not released any details of their investigation.

    That is what the grandmother said in the video. I have no idea what the situation is, but it definitely does not sound like the grandmother liked the grandfather at all, so I have no idea why you would assume they were still together if he has a girlfriend. I have not seen anything that says that they were living together nor that the grandmother took the granddaughter over to the grandfather's house and that is when she got mauled.

    There are many interesting posts on the Facebook page that are coming out. Here is one of them:

    "If anyone was wondering, apparently this isn’t the real story of what happened. According to people in the town, Kelly had approached the store manager to ask that they throw several children out because they were staring at Victoria. Not making fun of her or bullying her, just staring. The manager had no reason to throw them out because they weren’t being openly rude or nasty to the point of unreasonableness, so she refused. Then the grandmother started getting angry because the manager wouldn’t do what she said and became so disruptive that she was the one asked to leave. At no point did anyone say that they were being thrown out of the store because of the injuries to Victoria’s face. It was all because the grandmother reacted poorly to children showing a natural curiosity over Victoria’s injuries. Maybe the children’s parents could have asked them to stop staring because it was impolite, but according to the stories going around, they weren’t doing anything over the top.

    After they left, the grandmother started going to every news station she could and told everyone that KFC was mean to them, all the while telling them that she was doing a fundraiser to pay for Victoria’s hospital bills. I hope that none of this is true, but it sounds a little too reasonable for my comfort level."


    Interesting.

    That sounds a little more realistic than the grandmother's version. If this is the case, I can understand the grandmother may feel sensitive to how her granddaughter looks and how other people are going to react, however she needs to learn how to handle it better or else she herself is going to be the one to make her granddaughter feel bad about herself.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    I hate to sound like a skeptic, but I really think there is more to the story than the grandmother's version. That post makes sense. And let's face it..there are con artists and flim flammers everywhere. She wouldn't be the first person to lie about something, and she also wouldn't be the first person to use a sick child for personal gain.

    Everyone can call me heartless all day. I just think there's something amiss here.

    Which is why I posed my observations as questions, we dont know the full story or even if what the granny said was true, too many inconsistencies in my view for the KFC story to be believable but Im willing to wait till the truth comes out.

    It is. But it is not just the employee the way it sounds. At least how I'm reading it, it sounds like customers were complaining. They are just as ****ed up as the employee(s).

    That's probably not the case. It's more likely that the KFC employees were told at training time to remove customers who have appearances that are out of the norm, and the employee was merely following corporate policy.

    Such policies are SOP in corporate America.

    Uh, no. It was KFC's official policy. Learn about corporate America rule #1--when poor customer service is exposed, always blame the employee.
