As you probably noticed, our commenters blew up over Oprahs free-chicken botch job, which riled up customers everywhere from Portchester, New York, to Greensboro, North Carolina, to, of course, midtown NYC (there was no rioting there, KFC insists). While some of our commenters thanked Oprah for the blessing (if you don't like it i think you should take everyone in the united states to red lobster or somewhere and then talk), others chastised her for supporting KFCs distributor, Tyson, one of the most notorious animal cruelty violators in the industry.
The Huffington Post points out that Oprah, having won a Person of the Year award from PETA, shouldve thought twice about this, and another blog wonders why PETA hasnt spoken out. Meanwhile, while rumor has it that the promotion is threatening to drain KFCs chicken inventory, the web folks at Oprah.com have added customer-service contacts to the coupon page. Still, with the download period now over, dozens and dozens of commenters continue to gripe that they couldnt print the coupons. Our favorite comment: Went to 3 chgoland KFC's on list refused coupon. Went to Popeyes mgr took coupons gave us buy1 get1 mmm red beans & rice! No use 4 KFC!
