Oprah's chicken run: KFC riot stories exaggerated
Oprah Winfrey promised free chicken, and folks wanting a taste of the feathered friend cried fowl when they were denied the treat in a New York City KFC Wednesday. It appears that the fast-food chain ran out of the new grilled chicken.
"Some customers were upset because they couldn't get their chicken, but there was no riot," KFC spokesperson Laurie Schalow told the AP.
Oh no! Oprah.com had offered coupons for a full KFC meal: two pieces of grilled chicken, two sides and a biscuit. Oprah + free food = madness. Not to worry though. The Manhattan KFC will be restocked, and the coupons will still be honored.
After enjoying so many free meals in the past few weeks from various establishments (Ben & Jerry's, El Pollo Loco, Chik Fil A, etc.), people have started to feel entitled to not pay to eat. Cluck that.
