The Washington Post reports:
A KFC China spokesperson told BlogPost via email that the restaurant is not affiliated with the brand.
“We’re considering legal action as it is a knock-off and has nothing to do with us and it infringes on our brand trademark,” the statement said. “We find it distasteful.”
“It’s insulting, offensive and plays to racial stereotypes,” the Rev. Al Sharpton said of the shop to the New York Post. “What makes it even worse is that when we deal with this global competition between the U.S. and China, for them to be mocking the leader of the free world, I find it even more appalling.”
Clearly, the Reverend isn’t even aware that the racial stereotype he’s talking doesn’t even exist in China and that the Chinese people know nothing about black people and their supposed love for fried chicken.
