MISSISSIPPI (CNN) — A Mississippi woman says her three-year-old granddaughter was asked to leave a KFC in Jackson because of her facial scars, WAPT reported.

Victoria Wilcher lost her right eye, and suffered a broken jaw, broken ribs and several puncture wounds when she was attacked by three pit bulls in April.

She had just been released from the hospital after a month of recovery.

Restricted to only soft foods, Victoria’s grandmother says she went to KFC to get her mashed potatoes and gravy.

But what happened next caught them completely off guard.

She said she sat down with her and started feeding her, and then a worker came over.

“She said that we’d have to leave, we were disturbing customers. Victoria’s face was disturbing other customers.”

On hearing the news, Victoria’s family took to Facebook with a post of her face, and a message reading “Does this face look scary to you?”

The message went on to say, ” I will never step foot in another KFC.”

The KFC corporate office reached out to the family and released a statement saying it has zero tolerance for any kind of hurtful or disrespectful actions towards their guests.

And the company is quote “Committed to doing something appropriate for this beautiful little girl and her family.”

    WTF is not just wrong with the KFC employee's but the a**holes who complained? I'd like to hit them in the faces with bricks.

    If she were MY granddaughter, I would have found out who at the KFC made those complaints and then taken her to their table and sat down with them and kept on eating. If they don't like her scars, her scars are gonna be IN YOUR FACE!!!

    Mississippi is the state with the highest percentage of blacks. You can bet a pound to a pinch that that's who cruelly mistreated this adorable little white girl.
