A grandmother brought home a bucket of children and was furious to see it was only half full. She's now suing the franchise for $20 million dollars. She says it's the 'principal of the matter'.
If you look at a KFC advertisement for a $20 fill up bucket, it looks like it's overflowing with juicy, golden fried chicken pieces. New York resident Ann Wurtzburger, 64, ordered the bucket to go and went home thinking she would have enough for a couple of meals. When she opened the bucket, she couldn't believe what she saw inside.
Or, perhaps, it's more to the point to say she couldn't believe what she didn't see inside. She didn't see much chicken. The bucket looked to be about half full.
"They're showing a bucket that's overflowing with chicken. You get half a bucket! That's false advertising, and it doesn't feed the whole family. They're small pieces!" she argued.
Wurtzburger filed a $20 million lawsuit against the company, and at first they responded with about $70 worth of coupons. The lady refused, stating it was a matter of principal.
"Sometimes you gotta hit people where they feel the hurt. For me, a corporation like that - would be in the pocketbook," she said.
The elderly woman says she lives on a fixed income, so getting KFC is a rare treat. She only wants what they advertise.
KFC isn't offering anything now; they plan to ask the court to dismiss the case. Now, it's in the judge's hands.
