Like I already said, KFC chooses to promote its activity on the internet to the billion Chinese people in China.  That is a very ambitious business tactics but also a risky one.  The outcome can go both ways!  So, KFC is not stupid and should have anticipated the risks it is taking.

KFC did not, I guess or perhaps, it did but probably KNEW how easy the Chinese consumers can be taken for a ride by simply making an accusation "ABUSE !!".

This habit of yours, which happens so often, is not new and could even be an abuse in itself.  Do you know?

"due to abuse" ?  Has KFC got proofs and identified the culprits?  In the absence of any evidence of foul play, how could KFC simply cast its net on ALL the consumers and penalise them indiscriminately, even for those acting in good faith on the words of KFC?  

My guess is KFC cannot handle what they promise to do and now play dirty.


KFC may not force the Chinese people to buy its meal.  But, by offering the coupon it makes it attractive for the Chinese to consume its meal.  So, KFC may not "force" the Chinese consumers but it CERTAINLY INDUCES them to buy its meal which they would not have done so had it not been for the GIMMICKS that KFC employed to promote its sales but later realised they were outsmart.  

"INDUCE" is not force but it certainly influences the consumer's choice to involuntarily eat at KFC.  So, can INDUCE be considered a soft version of "force" then?  

Of course, the consumers could still buy a meal at KFC without the coupon.  BUT they WOULD NOT HAVE bought the meal had they not been induced (and now deceived) by the offer that KFC made so irresistible to them.

It is not about "affordability", you know.  It is about REPRESENTATION or DECEPTION.  Did the consumers get what they were told they would?

Yes, China has no strong activists to fight for its rights.  That makes them vulnerable to abuse, albeit not necessarily by their own fellow Chinese.  Unlike USA where KFC comes from.

Go on, why don't you just start an independent customer rights political activism group?



Hey, Mr Black man, calm down !

Let's not behave ambitious like KFC.  Over-ambition can backfire and that's what is happening.

Ya, let's deal with one thing at a time ..... on KFC's dishonour and deception is what this thread is about !

KFC's acting on BAD FAITH is only just the beginning of a more enlightened Chinese people on who and what bloodsuckers are capable of !!

Welcome to our Club of healthy, Asian food eater.

McDonalds and KFC may be for the poor in America and West but they are charged exhorbitantly in Asia.

Do you think the Asian consumers are being "abused" for having to pay so much for a worthless meal ?

So... 32 kuai and you have a riot. You know, I had coupons rejected at KFC once when a promotion got much larger than anyone anticipated. We weren't angry in the least, maybe a bit disappointed, but there wasn't anything to be angry about.

Chinese people are simply unable to take things with grace. Even here, they are too prone to rent-seeking behavior at check-out lines, always trying to get a better deal by annoying everyone. Barbaric.

The KFC on La Cienega and Pickford in Los Angeles. It was the KFC-Oprah free chicken fiasco. The idea was to promote the new grilled chicken thing but stores had been so inundated with people who had the coupons (fifth most Googled term that week!) that stores started turning people away.
