KFC shortages expose the true extent of the UK's love for chicken
Wherever you've been this past week, you must have noticed the dilemma on everybody’s minds - KFC has run out of chicken!
Last week the chain switched its delivery contract to DHL, causing KFC outlets to have a shortage of chicken whilst lead to restaurants across the country having to close. Whilst the KFC team try to hatch a plan to sort the chicken issue out, disappointed customers have aired their frustration online.
A police matter
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.

Some disgruntled customers suspected fowl play, and called 999 about the crisis. The official Tower Hamlets Twitter page made a plea on Tuesday to make sure that real crimes were not being forsaken over chicken. Priorities people.
Thinking of the positives
Everyone having a meltdown about the KFC chicken shortage, but as long as they don’t run out of gravy, I’m really not arsed?Shame they’re not running out of those awful chips though?? #KFCCrisis

To some of the general public, the shortage of chicken was taken willingly over their favourite KFC treats. Why wasn’t there a chip shortage, eh?
Nation of detectives

The nation has also turned detective and are ruffling feathers like Sherlock Holmes in the hope of finding an end to this dismal chicken-less week...
When historians look back at 2018 they will speak with awe at the way the nation pulled together to overcome the great @KFC_UKI chicken crisis

But through the tears and hardship, some folks on Twitter understand the need for the nation to stand together at this difficult time.
Forecast for the week
The news informs me that KFC may not be properly restocked until the end of the week. So the BBC now has a fried chicken forecast.

Despite the best efforts of the British public, it looks like the problem will not be sorted until the end of the week. Maybe try Burger King?
