A message posted Friday evening by another Mississippi KFC franchisee, Dick West of West Quality Food Service in Laurel, offered "a big KFC picnic" for the child and her family.

West also wrote that he knows the Jackson restaurant owners "and they have never in the 50 years they have operated in Jackson allowed anyone coming into their restaurants to be treated with dis-respect."

In a message to the AP, he wrote, "I am sure KFC will make their finding public as soon as the facts are in. In the meantime, I offered to treat Victoria to a picnic because regardless of the outcome of the investigation, she has been thru more than any little girl should and I wanted to give her a special treat."

JACKSON, Miss. – KFC Corp. says it's investigating allegations that a restaurant employee in Jackson, Mississippi, asked a 3-year-old to leave because her facial injuries disturbed other patrons. The company is also giving $30,000 toward Victoria Wilcher's medical bills, a spokesman said Sunday.

The allegation about KFC was made Thursday on "Victoria's Victories," a Facebook page following Victoria Wilcher's recovery from a pit bull attack in April. The administrator posted a photo showing Victoria smiling shyly in spite of her facial scars and cartoon-decorated eye patch, and wrote, "Does this look scary to you? Last week at KFC in Jackson MS this precious face was asked to leave because her face scared the other diners."

KFC posted an apology the next morning, requesting details.

"As soon as we were notified of this report on Friday, we immediately began an investigation, as this kind of hurtful and disrespectful action would not be tolerated by KFC," spokesman Rick Maynard wrote Sunday in an email to The Associated Press. "Regardless of the outcome of our investigation, we have apologized to Victoria's family and are committed to assisting them. The company is making a $30,000 donation to assist with her medical bills. The entire KFC family is behind Victoria."

Her grandmother Kelly Mullins said Victoria had just been to a doctor's when they stopped at the restaurant. She ordered mashed potatoes for Victoria because she thought the hungry child could swallow the soft food without chewing.

She says she was then approached by an employee. "They just told us, they said, 'We have to ask you to leave because her face is disrupting our customers,'" she told WAPT-TV.

Victoria wept all the way home and now is embarrassed by her appearance — something that wasn't the case before, Mullins said.

"She won't even look in the mirror anymore," Mullins said. "When we go to a store, she doesn't even want to get out" of the car.

well there's a guy lying through his too white teeth.

he called himself human before the first 30 seconds were up and I knew it was gonna be downhill from there.

indeed here is a case where statement analysis shines as a useful and effective tool.

he "feels" and "believes" and "has no idea" all over the place but he can't state what he did and didn't do.

my guess is he did the exact thing that he described in spefific detail, though he described it in the negative.

my moneys on - he did sit down with the player(s) and go over which classes to take next semster so he could fix it so he's pass - but he took it too far with getting the specific player on the deans list. too far to fly under the radar of getting caught.

Roy Williams is telling partial truths. He probably doesn't know about the academic records of his players. If he doesn't know he doesn't have to lie. A don't ask don't tell situation in relation to grades.

Should he know? Certainly. He probably has an assistant/ assistants in the department to see that the players remain eligible by whatever means necessary.

I lost count of the times he said I have no idea. This is a violation of the rules of SA.

Liar, liar. Distancing all over the place. A direct no or he'll no would have bee nice or anger about false allegations would have helped and quite frankly, when someone brings an audience to the point of ridiculousness it demonstrates power and intimidation. Please, those players have to be scared too of being caught. They have their own reasons for being there.
