KFC Mailing Out Rain Checks For Chicken?!

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

Are you f*cking kidding us? The chicken escapade that has been going on for the last few days has resulted in disgruntled customers receiving a “chicken” rain check:

Seems you can have your chicken and eat it too…albeit a little later than expected. After hoards of hungry Oprah fans were turned away from KFC outlets across the country earlier this week, the fast-food chain is now sending out rain checks to appease them.

On Tuesday, Oprah Winfrey announced on her show that coupons for a free Kentucky Grilled Chicken dinner would be available on her website. But the demand was so overwhelming that KFC could not accommodate everyone. Traffic near a KFC in Greensboro, N.C., created such a hazard on Wednesday that police ended up blocking access to the restaurant. And in New York City and elsewhere, disgruntled customers staged protests.

According to KFC, the company has never had such a response to a special-meal offer. “It’s unprecedented in our more than 50 years,” said KFC spokeswoman Laurie Schalow told the AP. “It beats anything we’ve ever done.”

Too far, y’all. Too damn far.

    I can’t believe that there would put up this picture of angry black ppl with those sings knowing full well that this picture is from another event.Racist and very stereotypical

  • tj

    Black folks need to do better. We aren’t really taking to the streets behind chicken are we? What next? Watermelon? We’re just proving every stereotype about us. If only we could be so active at righting wrongs when it comes to the criminal justice system, our children, education, etc.

    Right on bg. Everytime we go to KFC, it’s sorry we don’t have any Extra Crispy and no breasts left either. Well, what do you have? We have some greasy Original thighs and wings that have been sitting under the heat lamps for a couple of hours, will that be ok? Well ok, how about some mac n cheese for the side? Nope, don’t have that either, but we do have some deliciously cold mashed potatoes and gravy…

    This is some BULLSHIT!!!

    I went to KFC for the first time in 10 years yesterday to redeem my coupon and was told that I have to feel out an application and that they will send it in to Corprate who will then send me another “coupon” for a two piece meal.
    I just wanted to see what excuse I would get which was the only reason I went on that venture.

    KFC…Free stuff…

    I call BULLSHIT!!!! This whole thing is really the new way of taking the “census” in black and latino neighborhoods… Oprah and her staff came up with this mess.

    What are you all complaining about–black people being photographed with the chicken–are they or are they not standing there with the signs yelling protest? Get over yourself, this isn’t racist, for goodness sake, it’s a damn picture. Leave it you all to find something racist in everything. Geez, you got a black president and you’re still yelling racist. What’s it going to take to shut you up?

  • DH

    P.S. It was a black woman that started the riot, least you forget!

  • http://bossip oklahoma girl

    Ugh. . . I wus so upset when i went up there to get my free food and i had to leave my name and address. Come on now they should have known people were going to make copies of the coupon. Its two pieces of chicken and two sides! Hell yea people were going to make extra copies. I just knew i wus going to eat kfc everyday until may 19th. If the chicken wasnt free then you wouldnt catch me at kfc because their food is way too expensive. Oprah i appreciate what you did but you should have made church’s the place to redeem the coupon their food is way better.

  • always knew

    @oklahoma girl- you are a typical negro. Even when something is free, you still have to complain…

    People like you iritate the hell out of me.

    Third, people staging riots and sit-ins over some chicken? WORD? Sounds more like a mockery of blks standing up for their civil rights…This stunt “Oprah” helped with, in my eyes and mind have set blks back…

    I’m so disgusted, I have no further words, and that is EXTREMELY RARE for me….

    Blk people, STOP THE MADNESS AND GROW UP.

    DAMN. 😦

    is KFC stupid? they offered a coupon for a free dinner and they didn’t expect such an outpouring? stupiddd

  • http://bossip oklahoma girl

    ok this for “always knew” what is a typical negro? im not complaining im just saying kfc should of had this planned out ahead of time and not wait until the last minute and try to give people rain checks.

  • erra-uhhh

    stop trying to say that only black ppl were upset. The Kfc i went to is in a mostly white area in and believe me those white folks wanted their chicken too and was mad! KFC should have done the “raincheck” thing from jump. Like fill out a form @ oprah’s website then get the coupon in the mail. It’s supernaturally dumb to think ppl of any race won’t show up for a free meal. especially in this economy.

  • Moxy

    This site, its content, and its “staff” need some serious help.

  • Warren

    Oh this is ridiculous. What is the big deal? So they ran out of Chicken. I can’t believe people are making such a stink about a $4.50 meal.

    If it’s free, why does it matter?

    Why are blks the only ones acting like fools behind running of chicken?

    Only blk people ‘complain’ and still talk ish, when they are getting something free. And then you had to throew in a few comments about Church’s…
    I think that you’re forgetting that IT’S FREE. And especially if everyone is acting a damn fool, coming back MULTIPLE times, then yeah, they probably will run out, everybody in North America and their mama, trying to get free chicken….

    What I said was self-explanatory. There was no need to behave in that negative of a manner, when something is FREE. Hoefully, they won’t plan better, they should NEVER bother to do it again, since so many people can’t control themselves and they act trifling and ignorant, behind FREE CHICKEN THAT THEY ARE NOT EVEN PAYING FOR…..

    So yeah, that’s what I meant when I said you’re acting like a typical negro….
