“I came home and said, “Where’s the chicken?’ ” Anna Wurtzburger told the Post. “I thought I was going to have a couple of meals.”
She claimed that the fast-food giant’s advertising shows a “bucket that’s overflowing with chicken,” according to the Post. She’s claiming false advertising.
Wurtzburger complained to the company but said she was told that the bucket was overflowing with chicken in the ads so that the public could see the product. She thinks it’s foul (fowl?) play. And so she hired a lawyer, demanding the company change its advertising.
The company sent the 64-year-old grandmother two gift certificates as an apology. She returned them, instead asking for $20 million in damages. Why so much?
“It’s the principal of the matter,” Wurtzburger told CBS Local. “Sometimes you gotta hit people where they feel it.”
The company says the lawsuit is “meritless.” The Colonel could not be reached for comment.
