Was it a hoax?

Remember when we talked about the three year old that was asked to leave a KFC? Turns out, that may have been a hoax!

I apologize for sensationalizing this story and being part of the problem. The thing is, no matter if this story is true or not, a little girl is being hurt. Mostly, by her grandmother who is exploiting her. Shame on you, grandmother. Shame on you.

 

This is the face of a girl that needs more than a grandmother who takes advantage of her condition.

Meet “Pig,” the Unusual Dog

Meet Pig the Unusual Dog. Her mother was feral and Pig and her siblings might have died if Pig’s barking didn’t attract the attention of Alabama native Kim Dillenbeck. [click the link up there for her Facebook page!]

Meet Pig the Unusual Dog . Her mother was feral and Pig and her siblings might have died if Pig's barking didn't attract the attention of Alabama native Kim Dillenbeck.

 

Everyone wanted to take a photo with her as she made her way around the fairground.

Pig seems to be in good health. She can run and doesn’t appear to be in any obvious pain. According to Dillenbeck, Pig thinks she’s just a normal dog.

Pig’s bizarre frame is due to the fact that she’s missing several ribs, along with part of her spine. Dillenbeck has to keep an eye on her when she eats just make sure she doesn’t choke on anything.

Pig is super vocal and playful though, and she’s definitely not afraid to bark when she wants your attention.

KFC Corporate Orders a Side of Apology

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.

 

First of all, who could say, “NO” to that face?

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 was told.

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.

That last part just kills me. 

What are your thoughts? Did KFC do enough? What would you have done if you were the grandmother?

 

Maybe Too Much Awesome?

We all know that one can be awesome. But, is it too much, to name a child that?

 

If a mom in Alaska gets her way, her 1-year-old daughter will go by the middle name “Awesome.”

“She’s just fun and happy and super smart and it fits her personality,” Lisa Flores told ABC News of her daughter, Viviana. “It just fits. She’s an awesome little girl.”

Flores, 36, and the mother of one other child, 14-year-old son Dominic, filed a petition in her hometown of Juneau in February to change Viviana’s middle name from Contea to Awesome.

Flores has completed the requirements of both notifying Viviana’s birth father and filing a four-week public notice in the local newspaper. The public notice landed Flores and her family on the front page of the local newspaper, The Juneau Empire, which came as a surprise to Flores.

“I don’t understand all the attention,” Flores told ABC News.

She has a hearing scheduled for July 7, at which time she will go before a judge and explain why her daughter should be named Viviana Awesome Flores.

 

 

What do you think? Is this a good or bad decision?
