JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A spokesman for KFC has told WLBT that a third-party consultant has been hired to conduct an investigation into the 3-year-old girl who was allegedly bullied at a local KFC and asked to leave because her facial injuries supposedly scared the other customers.

Victoria Wilcher was injured in a pit bull attack just a few months ago at her grandparents' house.

According to a Facebook post on "Victoria's Victories" the little girl was asked by a KFC employee to leave a Jackson restaurant because her appearance was disturbing some of the patrons.

KFC Corp. pledged $30,000 to help with the medical bills of the 3-year-old after posting an apology on the page, requesting details. They are now investigating the allegations

KFC gave us this statement on Friday in regards to the investigation: 

 "We continue to take this report seriously, and of course have great sympathy for Victoria and her family. Since we have so far not been able to verify the incident in our internal investigation, we have also hired a third-party consultant to conduct an independent investigation to help us resolve the matter. We have always prided ourselves on respect for all people and we will continue to emphasize this to all our employees.  In addition, regardless of the outcome of the current investigation, KFC Corporation has committed $30,000 to assist with Victoria's medical bills  Along with KFC Corporation, we are determined to get to the truth and address the situation appropriately."
