KFC’s Colonel Sanders will look just a little different the next time you see him. And by different, we mean Black.
The company has selected David Alan Grier to be the First African American Colonel Sanders in their upcoming campaign.
David tweeted the good news:

This is awesome. However, you already know KFC’s going to get a lot of ‘complaints.’
