KFC officials pledged to donate $30,000 to the family when they learned their claim about what happened in Jackson last month. They said the family could keep the money regardless of what their investigation turned up. But their investigation, after viewing hours of surveillance video from multiple KFC locations, found no evidence that showed Victoria and her grandmother, Kelly Mullins, were asked to leave one of their restaurants. http://leader-call.com/2014/06/23/kentucky-fried-hoax/

Very generous of KFC considering the circumstances.

I thought so... though, it would look worse if they withdrew the money... but that's really cynical to think that way

Worldwide publicity for only 30 grand. :)

Yes, but I really am trying to avoid cynicism for myself.

Did I start the other thread?... I think I did so I'm having to 'take it back'... sorta.

"• Kelly Mullins, the child’s grandmother who was reportedly with her at the store, told KFC that the incident happened on May 15. A Facebook post attributed to Victoria’s Victories, a support site for young Victoria Wilcher who was mauled by three of her grandfather’s pit bulls, has the two in Jackson on May 15 having gone to Blair E. Batson Children’s Hospital. "

I can't determine if these folks are married or if they're maternal/paternal grandparents but it's mighty strange either way.

"After it went viral, employees and managers at both Jackson locations have faced death threats, have had drinks thrown at them through the drive-thru window and have faced constant verbal harassment, the source confirmed. One employee told the Leader-Call on June 20 that it was the first day since the firestorm erupted that he wouldn't wear his KFC work shirt in public."

So, Phillip, your under-lying message is that Pit Bulls and assault weapons are both OK?
