This 9-Year-Old Boy Says He Was Fat-Shamed by Santa
Nine-year-old Anthony Mayse cried after his annual visit to a Forest City, North Carolina, Santa on Saturday because Santa fat-shamed him, he told WLOS.
Right after Anthony sat on Santa's lap and asked for an iPod Touch and a drone, Santa allegedly told him to "'lay off the hamburgers and French fries' ... That really just disrespected me and I felt awful." Anthony's mother Ashley said the comment made her son cry until he went to bed that night: "Very rude. I've never seen anything like it," Mayse told the station.
According to PIX 11, Anthony also tore up the photo he'd had taken with Santa. "I want to say to him, 'You don't want to disrespect a 9-year-old. Even though what shape and size you are, it doesn't matter," he explained.
Santa reportedly apologized to both the Mayse family and his supervisor following the incident, though there's been no further word on whether he'll continue as a local Santa through the holiday season.
