Reports are pouring in from the scene of the melee:
I just returned from my lunch break hoping to use the attached coupon
to score some free KFC grilled chicken at the mid town location 47 E.
42nd Street. Well I guess around 200 people also had the same idea
with coupons in hand.
When I finally gave up (after 30 minutes of aguing with other
customers) a small RIOT started going on outside the store with people
screaming at the manager while he wont let them use their free KFC
coupons (issued by OPRAH)
Another tipster warns of possible RACIAL VIOLENCE:
I went over to our nearest KFC a few minutes ago (this was around 42nd and Park)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?
Great Oprah, just great. Look what you've done. We will continue to cover this breaking potential race riot and/ or political uprising, at KFC. We beg you: If you are on the scene, send us photos and reports at once.
