|Little girl's injuries are real. The story about being thrown out of a KFC in Jackson, MS isn't!|
The controversy over in Mississippi takes another turn. And this turn comes back like a boomerang.
The controversy was driven by the reaction of a mother who claims her 3-year old daughter was bullied and shamed out of a KFC. The mother claimed that the restaurant employees at a Jackson, MS location told them that their little girl was disgusting. The little girl was permanently disfigured after a pitbull attack.
The incident left the little girl scarred and blinded in her right eye. The website Victoria (Wilcher) Victories pulled about $250,000 in donations across the world. It also promoted a boycott against the KFC location where they've claimed they eaten at.
Well the people over at Yum! Brands was not pleased over this controversy. So before they were to fire out the cannon the employees and manager of the locations, they needed proof.
Well the surveillance cameras tell us....nothing much.
Just another good sales day at the two local restaurants in the vicinity of this family.
Sources with knowledge of KFC’s investigation told the Laurel Leader-Call that surveillance video from both KFC restaurants near the hospital showed no customers who matched the description of Mullins or her granddaughter.
The source said no orders were recorded to include mashed potatoes and sweet tea in the same transaction on that day.
No hospital patient had ever been asked to leave one of the two restaurants near the hospital, the source said, adding that he had seen people who suffer from a variety of ailments eat at the restaurants.
“We have never, ever, ever run off anyone, and we have seen some really, really sick people come to the restaurant from the hospital,” the source said. “We’ve had people come in who were shot in the face. We’ve had them with tubes and wire sticking out. We never have asked anyone to leave.”
The sources spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not permitted to speak on the record.
The family initially told KFC the incident happened at the restaurant on State and High Streets, and they made similar claims on the “Victoria’s Victories” Facebook page maintained by the girl’s aunt.

Employees and managers at both KFC locations in Jackson said they have endured death threats, had drinks thrown at them through the drive-through window, and faced constant verbal harassment since the family’s claims went public.
KFC donated $30,000 to help pay for the girl’s medical bills after she was attacked in April by three pit bulls owned by her grandfather, Donald Mullins.
Mullins and his girlfriend, Rita Tompkins, were arrested and charged with child endangerment, but were freed on bond.
Victoria suffered several broken bones, severe facial scarring, and has been fed through a tube.
A Las Vegas plastic surgeon has offered to cover the cost of reconstructive procedures — which typically cost tens of thousands of dollars — through his nonprofit organization, and other doctors have offered their help.
The family claimed on Facebook that they had been fighting with their insurance carrier over the cost of the girl’s medical bills, but they never identified the carrier.
The official findings from the report are expected this week, and the family claimed the investigation would back their claims.
“I promise (it’s) not a hoax, I never thought any of this would blow up the way it has,” the family said on Facebook. “The article circling the web calling this a hoax is untrue. The article (itself says) the investigation is not complete. It is not over until KFC releases a statement.”
Victoria Wilcher, you're beautiful. Your family, not so much. Here's where I draw my conclusion to this controversy.
The young girl was being used in a deliberate plot to fraud and scheme a business out of millions. At first, I wanted to believe this. I felt sorry for the family. That little girl's life will forever be changed.
I can't vouch for the reckless behavior of dog owners. But someone should have been thrown in the iron college for letting their dogs attack that innocent child.
But this family lied on their daughter. I have no care for this. I am so done with sympathy towards people stories. I am going to not rush to conclusions.
I promise you. If I hear more stories about Black on White crime or victims of discrimination stories, I will take them with a grain of salt. We need to see the video. We need to hear the audio. We need to see pictures.
From now on before I post, I will make sure I get proof.
The law and children services haven't look into this yet. But it will eventually come forth.
