Oprah, look what you started with this free chicken promotion. You know times are tough and you also know we love us some KFC. Flip the script for more

And now this harrowing report from the scene of a KFC on 42nd Street between Madison and Park has landed in our inbox:
I went over to our nearest KFC a few minutes ago…and chaos ensued. Despite the very visible grilled chicken behind the register, the manager told everyone with coupons to leave and that the promotion was over for the day. The people there are currently holding a sit-in and refusing to leave until they get their free chicken…or the cops are called. Racial epithets were being spewed, people who actually wanted to pay for chicken were facing a potential beatdown, and the manager ran from the screaming horde. Oprah, what have ye wrought?

More than a dozen calls placed to the KFC in question have been met with an ominous busy signal. We can only assume a riot squad is currently cracking skulls to save that last defenseless grilled chicken from the freeloading mob. Developing…

This is some recession era ish right here.

    All of the nonsense over some free and/or discounted chicken is out of control. I am sick and tired of hearing about people (especially black folks) making a scene over some damn chicken.

    There may be a principal behind their irrational behavior but guess what, get over it. Whether a business has enough food to accommodate or will not owner a promotion is not the issue, it’s the type of people who are turning up in droves in a mob type fashion looking to once again get a handout!

    Stop the freaking madness people!

    I am very disappointed in Oprah for backing this entire KFC nonsense. For once, could she get anymore stereotypical black woman giving away chicken and two for the high obesity rate in the black community coupled with high blood pressure why would she give away a meal that contributes to the very down fall of black health. She was suppose to give a way a year supply of Whole Foods groceries since she’s miss high almighty

    They staged a sit-in? They’re really pissing me off with this. Free chicken is not a civil right, and therfore, not sit-in worthy.

    Come on people!! We have a black man in the white house. Don’t they know we are being looked at more now than ever. IT’S CHICKEN MAN!!!!! I try to live a positive lifestyle so that mabye we can break down a lot of the streotypes of black people. But when we do shyt like dis….wake up people.
