KFC Corp. is investigating whether or not an employee at a Jackson, Mississippi restaurant asked a girl with facial injuries to leave because her face was scaring patrons, the Associated Press reported. On Sunday, a spokesman for KFC said the company is giving $30,000 toward the girl's medical bills regardless of the investigation's outcome. A KFC employee supposedly asked the 3-year-old girl and her grandmother to leave the restaurant "because her face is disrupting our customers." A Facebook page supporting the girl had reached more than 32,500 "likes" on Sunday.
KFC posted an apology the morning after a Facebook page complained about the treatment of a 3-year-old girl who was asked to leave a KFC restaurant because of her facial injuries.
