Family of girl asked to leave KFC refuses money

JACKSON, MS (WFLX) - The woman who claimed she and her 3-year-old granddaughter were kicked out of a KFC, says they won't take the restaurant's $30,000 donation. The grandmother says it just doesn't feel right to take the money.

She maintains they were asked to leave because her granddaughter's face was scaring other customers. In April, three pit bulls mauled the 3-year-old.

In the last few weeks this story has gone viral with KFC offering the family money to help with medical bills. A story surfaced last week that the whole thing was a hoax.
