A California man has started an anti-KFC revolution on social media after posting pictures of what he assures us is a deep-fried rat that was served to him at a Los Angeles location of the restaurant chain.
The man, 25-year-old Devorise Dixon, shared photos of his unpleasant discovery on Facebook, and now the story is causing a backlash against Kentucky Fried Chicken around the world. Aside from the pictures of what looks an awful lot like breaded and fried vermin, Dixon wrote,
“DON’T EAT FAST FOOD!!! I WENT TO KFC YESTERDAY AND BOUGHT A 3PIECE CHICKEN TENDER. AS I BIT INTO IT I NOTICED THAT IT WAS VERY HARD AND RUBBERY WHICH MADE ME LOOK AT IT. AS I LOOKED DOWN AT IT I NOTICED THAT IT WAS WAS IN A SHAPE OF A RAT WITH A TAIL. IT SENT DEEP CHILLS THROUGHOUT MY WHOLE BODY! I’VE BEEN FEELING WEIRD EVER SINCE. I BOUGHT THIS IN COMPTON, CA ON WILMINGTON AND 120TH. I’VE NEVER SEEN CHICKEN LIKE THIS BEFORE ITS SICK!!!”
While thousands of people have rallied in support of Dixon (his friend count on Facebook has gone up astronomically over the past several days), we can’t help but smell a rat.
True, the pictures do look suspiciously like a rat (tail and all) but we’ve seen hoaxes like this one before, and this time around, we simply aren’t buying it. According the KFC, the company has tried reaching out to Mr. Dixon in regards to his claim, going so far as offering to pay for lab testing on the mystery meat.
Others are already accusing the 25-year-old of trying to profit from defaming the restaurant chain, hoping that the company will offer a settlement so that he’ll stop trying to convince people he was served a rat.
What do you think? Who’s the real rat here? Will you be going back to KFC any time soon?Sweigh
NO FAST FOOD IS SAFE. Did this man really bite into a fried rat from KFC??
