KFC to Dwyane Wade: The Colonel Wants You Back!

7/11/2011 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The NBA lockout has left Dwyane Wade jobless, possibly for a long time -- but one of his former employers would welcome him back with open arms ... none other than Kentucky Fried Chicken.

Turns out D-Wade used to sling chicken back in the day, and since he tweeted last week he was looking for a job ... KFC thought they'd make him an offer he couldn't refuse.

The General Manager of KFC fired off a letter to D-Wade and said that while they couldn't pay him in the manner in which he had become accustomed, they would make a donation to Colonel's Scholars in his honor.

Who can say no to The Colonel?

If D-Wade unwisely makes that connection, I don't care what anyone says. He'll be nailed to the wall for obvious ignorance. Think PAUL MOONEY...UNFADEDABLE!

You know its a shame that someone who is making millions a year is being offered and job and the rest of the society who need a job cannot find one. It makes you wonder. (I am heated about this story)!!!!

I currently work for KFC; there is nothing wrong with working or however you get your money. For those who are trying to make negative comments about the situation should mind there own and let Wade make the final decision.

Only if these ignoramouses knew that Wade isnt like the rest. He came from the bottom of the bottom. Stop hating because he has talent and made use of it. As for the people postig racist comments, you promote bad stero-types for your race. Best stero-type ever=all white people are racist. I'd rather be stero-typed for preference in food rather than be labled narrow-minded douche bags

I often eat KFC... have personally loved their stuff, but I keep coming across stories of people who have had really bad experiences with the company. There are some really funny vents about it here.
