Wealthy businessman Yang Lin fought dirty when a KFC branch ignored his complaint about hygiene.
Angry Yang blew 14,000 GBP buying 2,000 family buckets at the branch in central China after staff did nothing when he saw a chef preparing food without gloves or a face shield.
Then he began lining them up outside the entrance to the shop with signs warning people not to eat them because they were a health risk.
"I wanted to buy all their food so they couldn't poison anyone else and I wanted to warn people what sort of food they were eating," said 30-year-old Yang.
"I'm lucky to have made money in business so I can afford this protest. At first KFC wanted my money, but soon they were begging me to take it back," he added.
Yang only agreed to end the bucket blockade after KFC managers in Wuhan, Hubei province, publicly apologised for their behaviour and agreed to improve staff hygiene.
"If they'd done that at the start they would have saved themselves a lot of trouble," said Yang.
