KFC is saying that they did not find "any evidence" that a three-year-old girl was asked to leave one of her restaurants due to her scars. The company would like to meet the family "so they can provide us with any additional information they would like for us to be aware of."
They are still going to give the family $30,000.
The original story from the family claims that Victoria, a three-year-old who was a victim of a pit bull attack, was turned away because her scars were disturbing other people.
A Facebook page that was created by a woman claiming to be Victoria's aunt has been suspended. But, a GoFundMe page ran by the same woman claims:
"I promise its not a hoax, I never thought any of this would blow up the way it has. The article circling the web calling this a hoax is untrue. The article it self say the investigation is not complete. It is not over until KFC releases a statement. The media outlet running this story is not connected with KFC. The family has not asked for anything, a attorney is handling all the media publicity for the family pro bono. Please do not believe untrue media. I have personally watched this family go without to provide for Victoria. They have not and would not do anything to hurt Victoria in any way."
The page has raised over $133,000.
Now, here is the extra sad part of this story.
There's another little girl named Victoria. Her parents have a Facebook page called "Victoria's Victories with Congenital Short Femur/PFFD." These people are completely unrelated to the KFC story. But, they have received a lot of negative attention from people who have mistaken their cause for the KFC hoax.
These people have raised less than $2,000.
