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.

We were introduced to Sam Smith by “Stay With Me,” on QMIX. And i immediately was drawn to his crooner ways. I downloaded his album, “In the Lonely Hour.” All the songs are wonderful.
Then, like a pro, he comes out with a cover of “How Will I Know,” from the late great Whitney Houston.
I’m totally fangirling.
YES! More of that please!
Pardon, me. Do you have any Grey Poupon?
Grey Poupon has been known for some catchy commercials. This one, however, might be a bit too racy, as it’s been banned. Take a look at how you shouldn’t really turn noun’s into verbs…. You’ve been warned. It’s a play on words.
Remember OK Go? The band that made the video on the treadmills…?
Or the rube goldberg in one take…?
They’re back, promoting their new album with the song, “The Writing’s on the Wall.” This one has some pretty cool optical illusions!
AND IT’S GLORIOUS!
Jimmy Fallon does it again!
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?
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.”
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?
