Grandma Says Toddler Was Asked To Leave Restaurant Because Her Scars Were Scaring Customers
A 3-year-old girl who’d been attacked by dogs was asked to leave a KFC in Jackson, MS, says her grandma, when an employee said her scars were scaring other customers.
“They just told us, ‘We have to ask you to leave because her face is disrupting our customers,’” Kelly Mullins, Victoria Wilcher’s grandmother, told WAPT-TV. “She understood exactly what they said.”
Mullins said she was driving her granddaughter home from the hospital in early June when they stopped at KFC for mashed potatoes.
The dog attack, Mullins explained, has made it difficult for her granddaughter to swallow.
“The right side of her face is paralyzed,” Mullins said. “She’s got a lot of surgeries to go through and she won’t even look in the mirror anymore. When we go to a store, she doesn’t even want to get out [of the car]. She’s 3 years old and she’s embarrassed about what she looks like.”
KFC says it’s investigating the incident.
