Customers: KFC Giveaway Clucked Up Our Lives

6/17/2009 7:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

KFCHell hath no fury like a chicken lover scorned -- as you'll see in this lawsuit filed by people who are pissed over KFC's free chicken giveaway.

James Asanuma just filed the suit on behalf of KFC fans everywhere, saying the chain's May giveaway was nothing short of a scam to deceive its customers into spending more dough.

The lawsuit, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, says KFC promised everyone "2 pieces of grilled chicken, two individual sides and a biscuit" -- but the promotion, which was promoted on the "Oprah Winfrey Show," turned out to be so popular they couldn't meet the demand.

And that's when the biscuit hit the fan.

The suit says that because KFC couldn't dish out the food as promised, they were forced to give vouchers for free food in the future.

The suit says this "bait and switch" caused customers to incur "travel costs, paper and printing costs, postage, the money they spent on other food items at KFC on visits when they had intended to redeem the Coupon ... and the loss of the value of the promised Meal."

James is suing KFC, because he's hungry for a little payback.

here in ohio they told us that they were getting fake coupons and that they needed to send them in to verify if they were real or not. once verified they would send us a coupon(four per household, which we only recieved two so far). they never told us that they ran out because the one on woodville rd. had plenty of grilled chicken when i visited all four times.

What If    

It kind of makes you feel proud to be an American.....

Right? We breed some of the best "looooooosers" in the world!!!!

Come on... "travel expenses, printing and paper costs????"

Looks like to me we have another attempt at the McDonald's Coffee Lawsuit --- the courts should have NEVER EVER awarded that Bi**ch those $Millions for spillin' the coffee on her lap while driving her car..... STUPID!!!!

So, as I said, congrats America, we grow the best here (especially here in California).

A Lawyer    

Ugh, this suit is absurd. However, Eric this is nothing like the McDonald's lawsuit - you clearly only know what comedians said about it and not the actual case which involved skin grafts of her "lady parts." That being said, the lawyer who filed this case and the people involved with the Miley case should be rounded up and sent before the Bar Association for misuse of the justice system and filing frivolous claims. Then, perhaps we can all get together and sue them for pissing the rest of the world off....seems fair.
