KFC decides to suspend its slogan, ‘It’s Finger Lickin’ Good’, in order to support new health measures against the Coronavirus pandemic…but is that necessary?
The slogan, since 1956, has the best way to describe Colonel Sanders’ Kentucky Fried Chicken, but in a post by the New York Post, KFC have decided to suspend its use for an indefinite amount of time due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

That’s because the Southern-style fast food chain is suspending their iconic ‘finger lickin’ good’ advertising campaign – a move to preserve the health of their customers amid the Coronavirus pandemic.New York Post
People are distraught with the new measures implemented each day to reduce the risk of the virus spreading. These are necessary measures, with local pubs, clubs, theatres, etc. closing down to reduce social groupings all over the world. But, social distancing individuals are freaking out over the loss of sports on television, the cancellation of tons of events, and all else being suspended.
Mind you, these are all precautionary measures that are important to reduce the impact of contamination, but was KFC’s move even necessary?
I mean, it comes from a good place and people should start considering picking up a fork and knife, but is removing the slogan even going to make any change? How is that helping the fight against Coronavirus?
It’s important in these difficult times to be aware of practical means of staying safe, for yourself and others.
It is far more impressive to see major corporations donating their finances or volunteers donating their time to support the doctors and medics keeping communities safe, instead of simply changing slogans… For instance, read here how MOTI donates cash and medical equipment to relief efforts in Wuhan.
