An unfortunate customer got a shock when he ordered fried chicken from KFC in the United States but instead got a fried rat!
Facebook user Devorise Dixon shared numerous pictures of his disgusting find on the internet and has caused a firestorm online. From the images he shared, you can see the "chicken" meal that resembles a deep fried and battered rat with a long narrow tail.
This was his recount of the horrifying incident:
“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.”
The contributor later updated his post stating that after testing, it was found that the rat-shaped chicken piece was, in fact, allegedly a rat.
However, according to Citybuzz news, the KFC franchise from South Africa responded to customer feedback and debunked the rumours that the chicken was a rat.
"KFC SA has responded on behalf of the KFC franchise, to the claims of serving its Compton customer with a fried rat. KFC SA tweeted at @Varushka_ P to assure the her that an investigation of the oddly shaped piece of chicken was conducted. It was found that the chicken piece is not a rat."
