How is it that IHOP and Denny's can give away free food during the year and they never have any problems at all, but Oprah gives out a free coupon for KFC and the world goes nuts. Oprah announced on her website that the entire world is getting free chicken. There is a coupon that had to be printed out by yesterday and then you have until the 19th to use it.
Well, apparently KFC outlets didn't get the memo or they are so used to no one actually coming to their stores that when 200-300 people show up, they lose their minds.
According to Gawker, KFC outlets in New York have refused to honor the coupons or are only doing so for a few minutes. This is not going over well with people and they are angry. Angry enough where customers have got into fights and others who are staging protests and sit-ins. There have been racial slurs back and forth. And, PETA hasn't even got involved in all of this yet. I can't wait to see what they try to do to Oprah. Try being the operative word.
