A KFC spokesman has apologized after staff members at a restaurant in Bath, England kicked out a lesbian couple for what was described as “heavy petting” between the two women.
The Independent reports:
Stephen Pope, the father of one of the women, said on Twitter that “a couple complained about them being gay so the manager threw them out”.
And in a tweet to the company, he said: “Dear @kfc the manager at your Bath, UK, store just kicked my daughter and her g/f out for being #gay. Is this one of your policies?”
A KFC spokesman said they were “very sorry for any offence caused”.
But he added: “While we acknowledge that staff may have been over-zealous in asking the couple to leave, we do not believe that the decision had anything to do with their sexuality.
