By now, you may have seen the viral photo that Devorise Dixon posted to his Facebook page that has gone viral online. In it Devorise claimed that KFC served him a deep-fried rat instead of a piece of chicken. However, the claims of a deep-fried rat being bitten into by Dixon are being called fiction, both by KFC and savvy Internet users.
Devorise also posted this video of the so-called KFC rat to Facebook, but users cannot see the inside beyond the deep-fried batter covering to know actually what kind of meat exists beyond the coating.
First off, there are the claims Devorise posted onto Facebook, which claim to spell out his horrible ordeal with KFC.
“I went to KFC bought a 3-piece chicken tender! As I bit into a piece of it I noticed that it was very hard/tough and rubbery! Which sent this deep chill throughout my body. I looked down at it and saw that it was a cooked rat!!! Made me feel sick! Never new [sic] chicken was shaped like rat’s [sic] and had tails! Bought this from KFC on Wilmington and 120th in the shopping center! WATCH WHAT YOU EAT PEOPLE ARE SICK OUT THERE!”
Despite those claims from Dixon, KFC is calling foul on the rat story, saying Devorise won’t speak with KFC or the KFC lawyers, but instead, Devorise is getting his own lawyers. Dixon claims to have the rat in the freezer, as reported by Yahoo.
A user has analyzed the Devorise KFC rat story and posted a lengthy analysis on Imgur, calling Dixon’s claims of biting into the rat’s head bogus because it would’ve been where the skull and brains were located — and would’ve been a lot firmer than a “hard” and rubbery surface.
On Facebook, Devorise claims a KFC manager admitted it was indeed a rat.
WENT BACK TO KFC YESTERDAY AND SPOKE TO THE MANAGER SHE SAID IT IS A RAT AND APOLOGIZED, IT’S TIME FOR A LAWYER!!! BE SAFE DON’T EAT FAST FOOD!!!
KFC stated that their attempts to reach Devorise haven’t been successful.
KFC takes customer claims very seriously, and we are continuing to investigate this matter. Our chicken tenders often vary in size and shape, and we currently have no evidence to support this claim. We are aggressively trying to reach Mr. Dixon, and we request that he return to the restaurant with the product for testing, or call us at 1-800-Call-KFC.
As reported by the Inquisitr, previous claims of fried rats have been difficult to prove.
