A New York citizen has been left so disappointed with the lack of chicken in her “family bucket”, that she has hired a lawyer and filed a law suit because it’s “false advertising”.
Anna Wurtzburger (yes, that actually is her name), says she bought the $20 (£16) bucket of chicken over the summer as a “rare treat” but was shocked when it looked nothing like what she has seen in the adverts.
In fact, the 64-year-old grandma who is living on benefits, is suing the fast-food chain for a whopping $20,000,000. Roughly £16,000,000 here in the UK.
KFC’s family buckets as advertised.
In her own words, she has told the New York Post:
“I came home and said, “Where’s the chicken?” I thought I was going to have a couple of meals. ‘You get half a bucket! That’s false advertising, and it doesn’t feed the whole family. They’re small pieces!“
After calling KFC’s headquarters in Georgia to complain, she was told the chicken was portrayed prominently on the commercial “so that the public could see the chicken”. But of course, this didn’t go down very well with Mrs Wurtzburger, leading to her filing her lawsuit and demanding KFC change their advertising.
A spokesperson for KFC has described the claims as “meritless” and will be “asking the court to dismiss this case”.
