10) KFC

A 3 year-old girl was mauled by pit bulls in April, causing scarring to her face, and last month the girl’s family posted on their Facebook page that while visiting a KFC in Jackson, Miss. she “was asked to leave because her face scared the other diners.” Word of the incident quickly spread via social media, and a FKC spokesman issued a statement saying that they launched an investigation, and in the meantime would donate $30,000 to her medical bills. The issue is still unresolved: KFC’s investigation revealed no record of her having visited the KFC in question, but still offered the family the cash. The money was refused, as the family insists that it wasn’t a hoax. Meanwhile, more than $100,000 has been donated to the family from well-wishers.
