After photos of chicken being washed on the floor emerged via social media, the KFC in Braamfontein has been closed

After dodgy images of chicken being washed on the ground of what is believed to be the premises of a KFC in Johannesburg, the store has been closed and the matter is being investigated by the international food chain.

The pictures were apparently taken by residents of a flat who live in close proximity of the KFC in Braamfontein, they were then distributed on social media where they went viral.

On Friday, customers hoping to get their dose of some fried chicken were disappointed to find a notice of closure on the door of the franchise.

The fast food chain has also sent out a tweet to say that they were investigating the matter.

Celebrities such as Sizwe Dhlomo have come out in support of the KFC, calling the report a "smear campaign".
