The latest viral sensation may have been a hoax

The latest viral sensation may have been a hoax

A Kentucky Fried Chicken employee in Kentucky supposedly asked a 3-year-old girl to leave the restaurant. Or did he?

The Internet has been ablaze for days now after Victoria Wilcher was supposedly asked to leave a KFC due to her disfigurement. She had previously made headlines after a heartbreaking attack by her grandfather's pit bulls.

Victoria lost her right eye and the right side of her face was paralyzed.

A Facebook page called Victoria's Victories -- don't bother looking, it's been offline since yesterday -- chronicled her struggles and asked for support on a GoFundMe (also deleted) pledge drive.

People got angry and the family raised $106,000 from the public along with a $30,000 pledge from KFC.

Here's the crazy part: The family most likely made up the KFC situation. KFC says they can't find any evidence that Victoria and her family were in the restaurant.

People are understandably outraged. The employees at the KFC mentioned in the Wilcher family's accusation have received verbal abuse, sodas thrown through the drive-through window, and other forms of harassment.

KFC still plans to honor its $30,000 pledge for Victoria's medical bills. At the end of the day, a little girl will get the plastic surgery she needs.

This story is muddled, to say the least. What do you think of Victoria's situation and the adults who used it to their financial benefit?
