Their promise is finger licking goodness, but one customer got a burger that took this promise a little too literal. The popular fast food outlet has since been lambasted for the tiny burger it served a customer.
Facebook page, South Africa Exposed, shared a photo of the tiny patty with the caption: 'KFC Zinger burger. This is the size of a patty of which you pay R81.90 for.'
South Africans were quick to come up with quirky jokes and puns:
Sakhele Ntaba commented: 'KFC did say its 'finger' lickin good lol'
Andre van Graan also saw the lighter side: 'They would say: Look at that mans big hands.'
Motlogolo Wa Ma-ali wrote: 'After Buying Dat1 Are They Still Gonna Ask 4 R2 Donation?????'
But others felt a little done in:
Dumisani Ndoni said: 'They take 1 wing, cut it in half and call it two wings....'
Raymond Stebbing pointed out that charity begins at home when he commented: 'They charge R30 for a 2L coke and ask R2 donation... why not give R2 from their over price coke?'
Do you think it's a rip off or not, and why?
In November, Briefly.co.za reported that South Africans were torn between being angry and being amused after a police pilot landed a chopper at a KFC to allegedly buy himself lunch in Queenstown, Eastern Cape.
The police is looking into the matter.
At the time, Brigadier Vishnu Naidoo stated that it is not clear why the helicopter was landed at that specific time or place.
The pilot was patrolling in the Eastern Cape at the time of the alleged lunch break. The identity of the pilot is still unknown.
According to Naidoo, the police is looking into the matter.
Earlier this month, Briefly.co.za also reported that another KFC made news headlines.
Social media users were left shook over the violent nature of a video, which showed a security guard beating another man in a KFC store.
A video was posted online recently, which showed a security guard completely losing his cool.
The footage showed the guard assaulting a man, for reasons yet unknown. According to Freshman News, the incident took place on 20 November at a KFC fast-food outlet in Savanna la-Mar, Westmoreland, Jamaica.
“There was an apparent altercation with one of the security guards on duty and a gentleman who came into the restaurant," Andrei Roper, Brand Manager of KFC Jamaica, said.
Roper added an investigation had been launched into the footage and local police were also probing what happened.
