James Asanuma sues KFC over free chicken giveaway
James Asanuma from Los Angeles has filed a lawsuit against KFC for their free chicken giveaway deal that they launched back in May. He said the whole free giveaway was nothing but a scam to get chicken customers to spend more money.
The lawsuit, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, says KFC promised everyone "2 pieces of grilled chicken, two individual sides and a biscuit" -- but the promotion, which was promoted on the "Oprah Winfrey Show," turned out to be so popular they couldn't meet the demand.
His lawsuit says that because KFC couldn't meet the demand they gave out vouchers instead for free food the next time, but James says this made him spend more money because he had to incur travel costs, spend money on other KFC items when he really wanted the free food giveaway deal and he 'lost the value of the promised meal'.
