Kentucky Fried Chicken is a highly successful chain restaurant. They have been around for decades. And they won’t be leaving. But the legal dispute they are caught up in is threatening that. More importantly, it is over some of the most absurd nonsense that will make your stomach turn.

A group of Muslim believers is campaigning for Kentucky Fried Chicken to shut down their businesses if they do not serve halal food. It is a movement that is gaining a lot of support in New Zealand all thanks to a Facebook and social media campaign. They have gained over 2,000 likes in a little over a month and their support continues to grow.

The US Herald reported,

“The movement is being led by Syeda Fouzia, who said the process of delivering halal food ‘is not that difficult.’ ‘We’ve had some criticism, but having halal certification will only mean more people will be able to eat at KFC. It won’t affect non-Muslims,’ UK-born Ms. Fouzia told reporters.

However what seems to be missing in all of this is KFC’s iconic branding within the fast food industry and whether it might actually affect its business model around the world, in that the entire concept of KFC is its branding persona of it’s carefully guarded “top-secret” original recipe which includes a blend of 11 herbs and spices.

However, Ms. Fouzia has gained a lot of support online asking why the simple transition can’t be made to include “halal KFC?” “Just like to point out KFC is a multi-national fast food corporation, it has about as much cultural bearing on New Zealander’s way of life as Tacobell,” one person said.

But not everyone was having it from the bully Muslims:

Fortunately, KFC has no intention of caving in to the demands of these pushy Muslims. ‘We appreciate their request, however, the issues relating to us being able to certify halal product for customers remain,’ said a KFC a spokesperson. ‘We have no plans to re-introduce halal in New Zealand.’ Well, there you have it. Nice job KFC!”

Halal meat is food that is permissible to eat under Islamic law. Much like kosher meals for Jewish people, halal is a dietary restriction that many Muslim believers abide by. While there is no problem for anyone to eat like this, the problem that is arising is where they are trying to force Kentucky Fried Chicken to abide by their religious dietary restrictions.

Stuff.co reported,

“However, David Wardly – one of the staunch online critics of her campaign – said halal certification was a way for Muslims to “ram their religion” into New Zealand culture. The 82-year-old said he did not know any Kiwi Muslims, but he feared the halal certificate was a way to introduce the Shariah law in to New Zealand. The Englishman said Islamic practices only had a place in Muslim countries.

“We’ll enjoy your culture, your music, your customs and your food in your country. Not here” Many online opponents also criticised the halal method for being cruel. But according to the Federation of Islamic Associations of New Zealand (FIANZ), the country’s commercial halal practices were in line with the Animal Welfare Code.

That meant it was compulsory for all animals to be stunned unconscious before they could be slaughtered. President of FIANZ Hazim Arafeh said the Animal Welfare Code and the halal method worked together “perfectly”.

“In Islam an animal must not suffer or be sacrificed in front of other animals.” He said there was no hidden radical agenda. “Halal certification is not about bringing Sharia law in to New Zealand, it [halal certification] exists because New Zealand wants to export to Muslim countries.”

Restaurant Brands – the company that owned KFC in New Zealand – had earlier said a halal trial was carried out in 2001, but complexities in supply chain led to the idea being dropped. Marketing general manager Geraldine Oldham said the fast food chain’s position had not changed and at this stage they had no plans to re-introduce halal options in New Zealand.

There were 46,000 Muslims living in New Zealand in the 2013 census, a 28 percent increase since 2006. Halal is an Islamic term meaning permissible. In the dietary context it referred to meat from animals and poultry that has been slaughtered using a sharp knife and specially-trained slaughtermen who recite a special prayer.”

If someone wants to eat halal meat that is fine but they can’t force private businesses to offer food. They are a private business and as such, they have a right to serve whatever type of food they want according to the demand they have. Clearly, the demand for halal food is not that high otherwise they would have already served it.

KFC Mocks Trump In Front Of Entire World…Will You Still Eat There?

The moment that Donald Trump was elected as president of the United States the left came out swinging to take him out. There have been protests, boycotts, and constant shrill screams of impeachment, but that was expected from liberals in the country. However, the last place we thought this behavior would be seen was in fast food restaurant chains, but that is just what happened when KFC just took a cheap shot at President Trump in front of the entire world, which could cost them millions of customers.

Advertisers are always looking for smart ways to attract customers to their brand whether it is with catchy jingles, comedic skits, or attractive models selling their products on the air, and they often work so why would anyone change a formula that is proven to succeed, right? Well, evidently some companies are willing to wade into controversial waters which is precisely what KFC just did with their latest grab for new customers on Twitter.

Over the last several months, President Trump has been doing his best to lead the country and keep our country safe from those that seek to do us harm. One country that is hell-bent on starting a war with the United States is the communist country North Korea lead by their deranged leader Kim Jong-Un.

In early January, the unhinged North Korean dictator announced that he had a nuclear button on his desk aimed and ready to fire at America. After Trump heard, this explicit threat of violence he shot back on Twitter saying, North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.” Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime, please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!”

The fast-food fried chicken giant tweeted on January 3. “McDonald’s leader Ronald just stated he has a ‘burger on his desk at all times, will someone from his big shoed, red nosed regime inform him that I too have a burger on my desk, but mine is a box meal which is bigger and more powerful than his, and mine has gravy!” 

The tweet immediately went viral with many people on the left applauding it as brilliant, but did KFC cross the line?

Here is more from Mirror:

KFC took aim at McDonald’s with a tongue-in-cheek tweet mocking Trump’s earlier Twitter attack on Kim Jong-un.

Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday, saying: “North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the ‘Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.’

“Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime, please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!”

KFC’s social media team poked fun at the President on Wednesday, with a tongue-in-cheek tweet slamming McDonald’s.

The fast-food restaurant wrote: “McDonald’s leader Ronald just stated he has a “burger on his desk at all times”. Will someone from his big shoed, red nosed regime inform him that I too have a burger on my desk, but mine is a box meal which is bigger and more powerful than his, and mine has gravy!”

The president does not actually have a nuclear button on his desk.

Known as the nuclear “football”, it is carried by a rotating group of military officers everywhere the president goes.

It comes after Kim made a rare speech on New Year’s Day in which he said the US will never be able to start a war against North Korea now that his country has developed the capability to hit all of the mainlands with its nuclear weapons.

“The entire United States is within range of our nuclear weapons, and a nuclear button is always on my desk.

“This is reality, not a threat,” Kim said during a televised New Year’s Day speech.

“This year we should focus on mass producing nuclear warheads and ballistic missiles for operational deployment,” Kim said.

“These weapons will be used only if our security is threatened.”

There is nothing funny about nuclear war and for KFC to mock the entire exchange is in poor taste considering the imminent threat. It is one thing to look for new ways to advertise to a new generation of consumers, but it is quite another to mock the president of the United States who is doing his best to the keep the world safe.

For the last eight years under the Obama administration, he allowed Kim Jong-Un to advance his nuclear capabilities which have put the entire world in danger. Now, President Trump is cleaning up the mess that was left behind by taking a tougher stance against the North Korean dictator that would love to wipe everyone off the map.

If KFC would like to continue making money with their sub-par fried chicken then maybe they should show a little respect for President Trump, and lay off the cheap shots.

KFC Just Mocked Trump In Front Of Entire World. Will You Still Eat There?

Nuclear war is no laughing matter but just one short day after President Donald Trump’s tweet about the size of his nuclear button compared to North Korean Dictator Kim Jong-Un’s, a funny parody tweet from chicken fast-food giant KFC is going viral. It began as a result of a New Year’s address where Kim declared he had a button on his desk that could fire a nuclear weapon capable of hitting the United States. But the ‘leader of the free world’ was not the only one waging a war of words against his enemy.

The rivalry between fast food giants has taken on a strange political twist as KFC used social media is what appeared to be an attempt to feud with fast food rival McDonald’s.

It is the latest in a growing history of retailers, particularly fast food chains, attempting to appeal to people on social media, particularly through pithy tweets.

President Trump’s original tweet stated – “North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.” Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!”

The might of KFC UK & Ireland weighed in too, taking aim at McDonald’s with a parody of Trump’s tweet with a parody tweet just one day later stating – “McDonald’s leader Ronald just stated he has a “burger on his desk at all times”. Will someone from his big shoed, red nosed regime inform him that I too have a burger on my desk, but mine is a box meal which is bigger and more powerful than his, and mine has gravy! #nuclearbutton”

The original tweet was created in-house at the KFC U.K. & Ireland, has already been retweeted over 137,000 times and had over 352,000 likes on Twitter. According to KFC, estimated total reach is somewhere around 185 million and it has led to KFC UK & Ireland trending in a number of different countries. A spokesperson for KFC stated in response to the viral tweet – “We were just clowning around. Like Ronald.”

It is not the first Twitter stunt from KFC to go viral recently. In November, the brand’s main U.S. account followed five Spice Girls and six guys named Herb on Twitter.  They then waited to see if anyone would notice its commitment to “11 Herbs and Spices” — which someone duly did.

Truly a comedic moment…

Naturally, those on the left would not know a sense of humor if it reached out and bit them as they were less than amused by President Trump’s tweet and the subsequent KFC parody. Politico cited both Joe Biden, former vice president under President Barack Obama, said Trump’s statements were “not presidential,”

Biden stated during a January 3 appearance on NBC News as he stressed his complete “disappointment” in President Trump’s response to Kim’s speech – “This is not a game. This is not about can I puff my chest out bigger than yours. It’s just not. The only war that’s worse than one that’s intended is one that’s unintended.”

Naturally many Democratic and even some Republican lawmakers agreed with Biden.

Rep. Jim Himes (CT-D) stated – “I guess the president regards this as a show of strength but as everybody who’s ever been in a first-grade playground recognizes, it’s usually the person who’s most aggressively pounding their chest that is, in fact, the weak one on the playground.”

Sen. Ed Markey (MA-D) accuses President Trump of “presidential malpractice” and worries that President Trump “could launch a [nuclear] war.” KFC’s tweet has been retweeted over 180,000 times and liked more than 475,000 times within a 48 hour period. To date, the battle of corporate tweets has been one-sided on the part of KFC with no response or retorts from McDonald’s.  Some of the replies across social media have been hilarious with one Twitter user posting: “This is amazing.” Another stated “They’ve jumped the chicken” and one simply declaring the post to be – “Cluckbait.”

Naturally, there were the killjoys that did not see the humor with one such person using the tweet as a platform to rail against capitalism stating – “what stage of capitalism is it where brands imitate threats of nuclear war to sell fried chicken” Others were left asking the simple question – “I didn’t know KFC served burgers,” wondering what they missed. No one is missing anything as burgers are what they call a chicken sandwiches across the pond.

Adding to the humor there is also President Trump’s well known and well-documented love for Kentucky Fried Chicken. President Trump famously tweeted a photo of himself feasting on a bucket of the Colonel’s famous fried chicken while on the campaign trail during the 2016 presidential election.

In their book, former campaign aids Corey Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie wrote KFC was among “the four major food groups” aboard Trump Force One.
