You’d be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t it's trademark fried chicken...The combination of crunchy texture and tender, juicy meat, plus the delicious blend of herbs and spices make fried chicken really hard to beat.
In fact, we're getting hungry just talking about it...
via: Getty ImagesYep, if there’s one thing that pretty much everyone can agree on, it has to be fried chicken. It’s the world’s great unifier.
KFC is the second-biggest fast-food chain in the world.It was founded in Kentucky (where else?) in 1930, as the Sanders Court & Cafe. The KFC re-brand happened in 1952.
And since then, it's really gone from strength to strength.

Kayla Frizzell is one of thousands of KFC fans.
via: FacebookThe mom of 2 from Australia can't get enough of the infamous fried chicken and is even considering having a KFC themed wedding next year.
But, despite her love for the fast-food chain...
via: FacebookShe doesn't usually allow her children to eat it.
However, in celebration of her daughter's first birthday...
via: FacebookShe thought it would be funny to combine her love of KFC with her baby girl, Mia.
So, Kayla, who is also a photographer, set up a photoshoot for the tot.
via: FacebookIt's a common trend for children to have "cake smash" photoshoots, but Kayla opted for something a little different.
Instead of smashing a cake, Kayla photographed her daughter with a bucket of chicken.The pictures are adorable! Keep scrolling to take a look.
But sadly, the pictures received a lot of backlash.And many of the comments were fat-shaming the one-year-old.
Yep, you read that correctly...People were actually fat-shaming an innocent little child.
Kayla was utterly shocked at the comments she received under what was intended to be a fun, lighthearted post."No wonder this baby is fat, KFC should not be given to one-year-olds," wrote one troll.
Some people went even further with their cruel comments.
via: FacebookOne person said they'd be reporting Kayla to child services over the pictures. What. The. Hell?
Understandably, Kayla was disgusted by the backlash.
via: Facebook"I was so angry about the fat labelling," she revealed to Kidspot.com.au.
via: Facebook"She's an innocent one-year-old child. I don't care about them pointing out KFC's not healthy... but don't call her fat because I let her suck on a chicken bone one time."
Kayla went on to say that Mia has a well-balanced diet, as well as still being breastfed.
via: FacebookThe tot ate a few chips, but had been fed before the photoshop, Kayla explained. She and her partner ate the chicken, then gave Mia the bone to hold while they took pictures.
"We already live in a judgemental society."
via: Kayla Frizzell"...where we grow up and it's normally teenagers feeling the pressure to be a size 10 or to fit into this, or be Instagram-worthy... but to shame a one-year-old or to shame the mother who's doing her absolute best to share a fun, creative Facebook shoot in isolation times?"
"There's just no need for negativity."
via: Kayla FrizzellThe fact that these people are targetting a one-year-old child is utterly horrific.
