KFC staffer fired after punching video surfaces
KFC has responded after a video posted to social media Sunday shows an employee punching a man from behind.
A KTVA viewer posted video Sunday evening at 8 p.m. showing an employee at the KFC on Northern Lights Boulevard striking a man from behind.
The poster wrote the man was intoxicated and employees had been asking him to leave before the incident escalated.
Anchorage Police spokesman MJ Thim says the incident has not been reported to them and they are not investigating. Thim says the public needs to call the police to report incidents such as these so they can be properly investigated and followed-up.
KFC's parent company, Yum! Brands, released the following statement to KTVA Monday morning:
The actions of the employee in this video are unacceptable and he was terminated immediately following the incident.
