A resident of Compton, California claims he was served a"Deep Fried Rat"in a meal he purchased from a local Kentucky Fried Chicken chain. The "Deep Fried Rat" photo has taken the internet by storm after Deandre Dixon posted a photo on his Facebook page of what he claims to be a fried rodent in his KFC meal.
