This is a story that deserves to be told primarily because it should never have happened.
It is a girl 3 years-old girl named Victoria Wilcher, which suffered a few months ago a brutal attack by three pit bulls while visiting her grandparents' caravan, that provoked the loss of an eye and scars all over his body, plus a huge psychological trauma.
His parents created a Facebook page they called “Victoria victories” where they share with their friends progress in the recovery of small.
Some days ago, Victoria with his family, They went to eat at a restaurant KFC chain in the city of Jackson in the American state of Mississippi.
Everything seemed within normal, until a restaurant employee asked them to leave, since apparently, Victoria wounded frightened face other customers.
They had no choice but to leave and accept this humiliation obviously affected in a very special way to Victoria.
But the story does not end here, because once at home, his parents wanted to denounce this situation through the Facebook page he created. In the post they published were the following question;
Does this face frightens you?
The reactions were swift, thousands of people shared this information through social networks, showing their indignation and requiring chain restaurants explanation, which they performed with a response in the post that had published the family on Facebook ,which already had more than 100.000 Likes the page.
También en twitter se provocó una avalancha de tweets en contra de la cadena de restaurantes,
Incluso el tema dio el salto a la televisión ,
Para costear las múltiples operaciones a las que tendrá que ser sometida Victoria, se abrió una cuenta para donaciones en el portal GoFundMe que en estos momentos lleva recaudados más de 110.000$
Además la franquicia de restaurante KFC ha emitido un comunicado público pidiendo perdón a la familia y ha confirmado que donará 30.000$ para ayudar a Victoria en sus gastos médicos.
Esta historia, dentro del dramatismo que conlleva, es un muy buen ejemplo de la enorme fuerza que el individuo tiene gracias a los canales digitales, y que supera en muchas ocasiones el poder de las empresas o de las marcas. Espero que mis queridos restaurantes tomen buena nota de la victoria de Victoria.
