The fundraising website GoFundMe has taken down a page devoted to raising money for a 3-year-old Mississippi girl whose family claims she was asked to leave a KFC restaurant because customers were repulsed by facial injuries she suffered in a recent pit bull attack. 

"In lieu of the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the 'Victoria's Victories' online fundraising effort, GoFundMe has temporarily suspended the campaign until the full truth is made clear," CEO Brad Damphousse said in a statement released Tuesday.

The site has also offered refunds to donors. 



The statement was the latest twist in a controversy that began when a Facebook post from 3-year-old Victoria Wilcher's grandmother went viral.
