Woman orders chicken and gets a deep fried towel instead

Laura Cunningham


A mother was shocked to discover that her son’s fast food order was actually a towel, deep fried in batter.

We’re a little shocked ourselves, to be honest.

The Filipino family ordered some tasty chicken as a treat, but didn’t exactly get what they asked for.

Taking to Facebook, Alique Perez said: “Ordered chicken for my son. While I was trying to get him a bite, I found it super hard to even slice. Tried opening it up with my hands and to my surprise, a deep fried towel. This is really disturbing… How the hell do you get the towel in the batter and even fry it!?!?”

A good question, I think we’ll all agree.

After Perez’ Facebook post went viral, the restaurant responded on their own social media channels saying that sending deep fried towels instead of chicken isn’t standard practice — good to know: “It is unfortunate that deviations from Jollibee’s standard food preparation procedures occurred on the part of certain personnel of the store.”

Worst apology ever.

We’re suddenly not very hungry.
