A 3-year-old girl scarred by a pit bull attack was asked to leave a Mississippi KFC restaurant because her face was upsetting customers, the girl’s grandmother said.

Kelly Mullins told WAPT that her granddaughter, Victoria Wilcher, was aware of what was said and cried all the way home; since the incident, she has not wanted to get out of the car when they go out.

"I took her to the doctor and I went to KFC. I ordered a large sweet tea and her some mashed potatoes and gravy because she was hungry. She was on a feeding tube at the time, but I figured she could just swallow (the potatoes)," Mullins told WAPT. "They just told us, they said, 'We have to ask you to leave because her face is disrupting our customers.'"

Wilcher was attacked by pit bulls in April and faces many surgeries on the road to recovery.

KFC is investigating what happened and made a statement saying, "As soon as we were notified of this report on Friday, we immediately began an investigation, as this kind of hurtful and disrespectful action would not be tolerated by KFC," spokesman Rick Maynard wrote Sunday in an email to The Associated Press. "Regardless of the outcome of our investigation, we have apologized to Victoria's family and are committed to assisting them. The company is making a $30,000 donation to assist with her medical bills. The entire KFC family is behind Victoria."

People have flooded a Facebook page set up for Wilcher, called Victoria’s Victories, with support.

“This morning we stand in absolute amazement, yesterday morning this prayer page was only 250 people and this morning we have thousands of people lifting Victoria up in prayer!” the Facebook page administrator posted on Saturday. As of Monday afternoon, more than 90,000 people had liked the page and many were making donations at her GoFundMe page, which had topped $79,000.
