      KFC apologizes for asking child to leave

      KFC has issued an apology after an employee allegedly asked a 3-year-old dog mauling victim to leave a Jackson, Mississippi restaurant because of her facial scars.

      A Facebook post on "Victoria's Victories" Thursday outlined the incident, saying the little girl was asked by a KFC employee to leave a Jackson restaurant because her appearance was disturbing some of the patrons.

      The child was badly injured in a pit bull attack in April.

      In addition to the apology KFC has vowed to fully investigate the incident and donate $30,000 to help with Victoria Wilcher's medical bills.
