Two women were asked to leave one of the fast food chain’s locations yesterday, after a customer complained.
We reported yesterday that a father had taken to Twitter to complain to KFC that his daughter and girlfriend had been thrown out of the KFC restaurant in Bath after a customer made a complaint about the couple.
TheGayUK did reach out to the PR Team of KFC but have yet to hear anything back, however speaking to the Independent a spokesperson for the company said:
‘Very sorry for any offence caused’.
The spokesperson continued: ‘While we acknowledge that staff may have been over-zealous in asking the couple to leave, we do not believe that the decision had anything to do with their sexuality.
‘Staff acted in response to complaints from customers about inappropriate behaviour, however they have since apologised, in person, to the couple, and offered them vouchers as a form of apology, so we hope to welcome them into the store again soon.’
Stephen Pope who originally made the complaint said that the police were now involved.
