(PCM) Young Victoria Wilcher is a survivor. At just three-years old she was viciously attacked by three pit bulls while at her grandfather’s home back in April. The incident left little Victoria with several facial scars and the right side of her face completely paralyzed. In some absolutely heartbreaking news, it has come to light that Victoria and her grandmother were recently asked to leave a Mississippi area KFC restaurant because they were told her scars scared the other customers.
Victoria’s family posted their story on social media in attempt to bring attention to the unfair treatment the family received at the restaurant and it is now gaining national attention. After the incident at KFC, Victoria is now even more ashamed of her appearance which she absolutely should not be. Victoria’s grandmother claims that she now doesn’t even want to go in any stores and is refusing to look in the mirror.
Victoria’s family is calling out KFC for their discrimination, which is terrible for a child to experience at such a young age. Officials at KFC have responded to incident and released the following statement:
“KFC launched an investigation as soon as we were made aware of this report. We take this very seriously, as we have zero tolerance for any kind of hurtful or disrespectful actions toward our guests. Our investigation is ongoing, but we have been in touch with the family and are committed to doing something appropriate for this beautiful little girl and her family. We will also work with the franchisee to take appropriate action at the restaurant once the specifics of the incident are determined.”
Victoria is currently on antibiotics and has several more surgeries ahead of her, but her grandmother says that she is doing well and is most definitely a fighter.We certainly wish the beautiful young Victoria all the best during her recovery process!
