Cops in UK have warned chicken lovers to stop phoning them over the KFC crisis.
It seems that UK has taken the shortage of fried chicken to heart. After hilariously trolling Twitter likening the crisis to an apocalypse, it seems that many are actually dialling 911 to report the shortage.
And now, cops in UK have warned chicken lovers to stop phoning them over the KFC crisis.
Nearly 500 branches remained closed this morning after delivery issues stopped chicken arriving at the fast food giant.
In fact, one East London Metropolitan Police Twitter account scolded locals for wasting their time over the shortages.
Please do not contact us about the #KFCCrisis - it is not a police matter if your favourite eatery is not serving the menu that you desire.— Tower Hamlets MPS (@MPSTowerHam) February 20, 2018
Tower Hamlets Police tweeted: "Please do not contact us about the #KFCCrisis - it is not a police matter if your favourite eatery is not serving the menu that you desire."
While, the Met could not confirm how many calls it had received, a spokesperson said, “The Met's call centres currently receive more than 14,500 calls every weekday. The Met is continuing its drive - including the use of its social media channels - to reduce improper use of the 999 and 101 numbers.”
According to sources who spoke to Sun Online, suppliers are being told to prepare for disruption for up to a month.
The fast-food chain was forced to close around 700 of its 870 UK stores after a catastrophic failure at KFC's new delivery firm DHL left them without chicken.
