Whenever someone says ‘It’s Finger-Lickin’ Good’, KFC is what comes to our mind. This 64 year old and of one of the most successful food chains in the market has decided to get rid of its iconic tagline due to coronavirus. As the number of cases is rising day by day, the food chain has shown its concern and changed its tagline which was not at all in the purview of safety measures prescribed. However, the global chief marketing officer of KFC has assured that the tagline has been suspended temporarily only and it will be brought back once situation will restore to normal.
Reason of suspending tagline
The main reason behind suspending the iconic tagline of KFC was the ongoing pandemic. The tagline was not following the safety measures prescribed during a pandemic. On Monday, when KFC announced that it will be suspending its slogan, it also called it “most inappropriate slogan for 2020”. In a statement, the company said, “Think we can all agree, this year has been like no other and, right now, our slogan doesn’t feel quite right. So, for that reason, we’ll be pressing pause on using it in our advertising, for a little while.” As the safety measures include not touching face or eyes with unwashed hands, KFC found it’s slogan inappropriate for this year.
Statement of Global Chief Officer at KFC
Catherine Tan-Gillespie, the global chief officer at KFC has made a statement regarding the slogan. She has also assured the customer that the only tagline is changing but the food will remain the same. Her statements also made it clear that the suspension of a tagline is temporary and it will be restored once this pandemic situation will be over. In her statement, she said, “We find ourselves in a unique situation — having an iconic slogan that doesn’t quite fit in the current environment. While we are pausing the use of ‘It’s Finger-Lickin’ Good’, rest assured the food craved by so many people around the world isn’t changing one bit.
KFC as a global brand
KFC has been one of the most successful food chains of restaurants in the global market. It is popular in almost every corner of the world. But as a global brand, the responsibility of the food chain company is also great. The part is that KFC realizes this responsibility and has taken steps by keeping it in mind.
The Global cases for Coronavirus are increasing and this is a matter of concern. What KFC has done is an example of Corporative Social Responsibility and the other big brands should also realize this as well. Customers are very happy at this decision of KFC as the brand has taken favourable steps for their safety. All we can do now is praise KFC and pray for the situation to get normal so that we can once again enjoy listening to the iconic tagline of KFC.

As her video got viral, it reached our hero Sonu Sood who tweeted that he wanted to open a martial arts school with her so that she could train the women of our country and teach them self defence measures. At that time, everyone praised Sonu Sood for this announcement. Though everyone was sure that Sonu Sood will keep his promise but no one knew that he will open a school for her so soon. He kept his promise and inaugurated her school on the holy occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi.
Reaction of Aaji
In a recent video, Aaji said that her dream has been fulfilled by Sonu and she has named her school after him. In another video, some kids are seen practising with her. She will be teaching methods of self-defence and martial arts to women and young girls in her school.

Also, Sonu’s dream of opening a school in which Aaji will train women in martial arts for self-defence is not too far. Aaji will be soon starting classes in her school.
