Ibrahim Langoo was enjoying another meal at KFC when he discovered what looked a lot like a "Kentucky Fried Brain." He took a picture of the bizarre piece of meat and shared it online where the photo quickly went viral.
"I have a habit of picking the chicken off the bone with my fingers and as I pulled the second piece apart, I saw this horrible wrinkled foreign body," he told MSN News. "I threw it down onto my tray immediately. It looked like a brain. I suddenly felt grim and really sick."
Rumors that KFC was serving up fried chicken quickly spread online along with the photo in question, forcing Kentucky Fried Chicken to release an official statement or risk a public shaming.
"Although we haven't received the product, it appears from a photograph that unfortunately on this occasion a kidney, and not a brain as claimed, was not removed in the preparation process," a spokesperson told The Sun."We're very sorry about Mr Langoo's experience and while there was no health risk, we agree it was unsightly."
A kidney is better, I guess, but honestly that 'Kentucky Fried Brain' picture is one of the grossest things we've ever seen, and we don't blame Ibrahim Langoo if he never eats at KFC again, even if they offered him free chicken kidneys for life...
Looks like the chicken fan agrees.
"I never want to eat KFC again - in Colchester or anywhere else," he told MSN. "I'll eat chicken at home, where I can see how it's been prepared."
The question we have for Ibrahim Langoo is whether this one "Kentucky Fried Brain" experience has turned him off of all fast food or just KFC? The truth is that even perfectly normal chicken still comes from extremely processed meats as well as chemicals and plenty of things you'd never put in your mouth if you knew what they were.
Don't forget about the infamous McDonald's Chicken McNugget paste, which McDonalds called "mechanically seperated chicken" and as the press called "Pink Slime." That stuff grossed everyone out when it was exposed as the building block of the world's most popular chicken nuggets, but no one did anything until we learned that American public schools were trying to feed our children the same chicken paste.
We couldn't resist taking a detour into disgusting fast food history, but let's get back on track. The "Kentucky Fried Brain" episode certainly may have scared a good amount of people from ever eating at KFC again.
Here's a some Twitter reactions that show how people are reacting to the "Kentucky Fried Brain" photo:
"Never getting a KFC ever again after seeing the 'kentucky fried brain' picture," tweeted Amb @AmberHimme.
"getting in the KFC tonite - well lookin forward to the new KFC Brain," tweeted Lee Nelson @RealLeeNelson.
"Well it's safe to say I'm never ever going to KFC EVER AGAIN," tweeted marianne mason @mariannekatie.
"Yuk: Kentucky Fried Brain," tweeted LizzyD @LizDimitrijevic.
"Right now, vegetarianism is looking good," tweeted Paulio @PaulioB.
