Olly gets attacked at KFC in Trowbridge

Determined Olly Tyler arrived at his local KFC branch dressed in a bespoke 600 costume and planned to wave a placard outside for two days in a bid to deter customers.

But within hours his feathers were ruffled when an ef moderator began hurling sachets of sauce, chicken wings and nuggets at him.

Interesting that KFC chose not to condemn the attackers in their statement.

Re: Olly gets attacked at KFC in Trowbridge

Perfectly logical explanation from KFC.. but clearly not good enough for the young gentleman???

Re: Olly gets attacked at KFC in Trowbridge

Regardless of his opinions (and any 16 year old who spends 600 on a custom-made chicken costume is obviously nuts) he should be allowed to make his protest without being thumped or pushed over.

Not really. Nothing to do with them, after all, and presumably not on their premises.

Of course, we only have his word for it, and his track record including 'awards from PETA' might suggest that simply standing there in silence was not all he was doing. It might not, but I'm damned if I'd take his word for it without any supporting evidence.

Obviously they did find it necessary to make a statement though. So they were not totally unconcerned.

It almost reminds me of the cynicism of one episode of Family Guy where two store detectives observe a thug steal the money of an old granny, and one detective says to the other "we'd better keep a close eye on that guy, he might steal something from the shop".

Re: Olly gets attacked at KFC in Trowbridge

Now we know why the chicken crossed the road..

The way he was treated is fowl, I bet he hates Fry-days now.

A chicken and an egg are lying in bed. The chicken is leaning against the headboard smoking a cigarette with a satisfied smile on its face. The egg, looking a bit miffed, grabs the sheet, rolls over and says ... Well, I guess we finally answered THAT question!

I'm here all week folks..

Of course not. He read an article on the internet.

We paid 300 to hire our goose suit
for a few weeks. 600 to buy one outright seems a bargain.

Olly, from Westwood, Wiltshire, was given money from relatives after doing well in his GCSEs and used it to buy a 600 chicken suit, which was handmade in Paris.
Surely the parents have to take some responsibility for this. If you raise a child to do well in his education and then buy a bespoke 600 chicken suit with the reward money, then you are clearly doing something epically wrong.
