JACKSON, Miss. (CBS Houston/AP) — KFC Corp. says it’s investigating allegations that an employee in Jackson, Mississippi, asked a 3-year-old to leave a restaurant because her facial injuries left by a pit bull attack frightened other patrons.

Victoria Wilcher was mauled by two pit bulls in April, leaving the right side of her face paralyzed along with visible facial scars according to WAPT.

The allegation against KFC was made Thursday on “Victoria’s Victories,” a Facebook page following Victoria Wilcher’s recovery from a pit bull attack in April. Photos show her facial scars and cartoon-decorated eye patch.

The Wilcher’s grandmother Kelly Mullins spoke to WAPT earlier this week.

According to her, the fast-food restaurant said “’We have to ask you to leave, because her face is disrupting customers’”

“I wanted to hit the lady,” Mullins added.

KFC posted an apology on the page, requesting details.

A spokesman says KFC is also giving $30,000 toward her medical bills.

Spokesman Rick Maynard tells The Associated Press that the donation will be made regardless of what the investigation finds. He says KFC won’t tolerate hurtful or disrespectful actions to guests.

The page’s administrator wrote Sunday that “Victoria’s Victories” had gone from 250 people praying for Victoria to thousands.

The page had more than 32,000 “likes” on Sunday.
