The pregnant teenager accused, along with her boyfriend, of the gruesome murder of her socialite mother has complained about the couple’s ‘racist’ treatment after they were given a KFC meal in jail.
Heather Mack, 19, and Tommy Schaefer, 21, are both behind bars in Bali after being charged with murdering Sheila von Wiese Mack before stuffing her body into a suitcase while at a luxury hotel.
Despite the possibility of facing death by firing squad if found guilty, the pair are said to be outraged by the the assumption that they would want to eat fried chicken because they are black.
It is believed that Mr Schaefer was particularly angry with the offering as he suggested KFC was a meal for the lower echelons of society, newscom.au reports.
Police were taken aback by the allegation, claiming that in Bali KFC is expensive for the average income earner and not at all for the lower wage earners.
Djoko Hari Utomo, chief of police for the Balinese capital, Denpasar, said: ‘Heather complains about the food and that she is not being well-treated in jail, nevertheless police treat the prisoners all the same.’
