KFC Will Stop Serving Obese Customers Beginning 6/1/16 To Avoid Government’s New “Fat Tax”

A “Fat Tax” has been approved by our Congress, effective June 1, 2016 – a surcharge that will be placed on fattening food, beverages and on overweight individualsIt is aimed to discourage unhealthy diets and set off the economic costs of obesity. This “Fat Tax” aims to decrease the consumption of foods that are linked to obesity. The idea is to tax the foods that are linked to increased risks of coronary heart disease. A clause in the new tax bill, which advocates are calling discriminatory, will allow fast food restaurants to exercise their legal “Right to refuse service to anyone.”

KFC will be implementing scales at the from of every register, built into the restaurant floor. You must stand on the scale when ordering or you will NOT be served. For drive-thru patrons it may be a bit more difficult to enforce. However, if the person looks like they exceed the weight restrictions, they will be refused service at the drive-thru window. “The only OTHER option is to implement the ‘Fat Tax’ at our restaurants,” says KFC spokesperson Richard Max. “Our analysts say if we raise our prices by 150%, KFC will be closed within the year. That is just not fair to our customers who are NOT overweight.”

The new law, which goes into effect 6/1/16 will raise the average price of a fast food combo meal to approximately $11, and the average cost of a soda to over $4 at restaurants who decide to continue to serve overweight people. Most consumers say they would not pay this outrageous amount for a fast food meal. While others say they really feel they have no choice because it has been their way of life. “I would pay $20 per meal if I had to,” said Mike Whilhouse, loyal KFC customer who weighs well over 500 lbs. “I’m hooked on fast food. I’ve tried to stop but I can’t. So I guess they got me where they want me.”
