Boy says he was fat-shamed by Santa

FOREST CITY, NC (WCMH) — The boy said he cried after old St. Nick told him to stop eating the fast food.

“And when I got done, he said lay off the hamburgers and French fries and that really just disrespected me and I felt awful,” Anthony Mayse, 9, told WLOS.

Anthony said after the experience he tore up his picture with Santa. His mom said that Santa didn’t even seem to want to be at the event. “I’m hoping he’s fired because I don’t want any kid feeling like he did Saturday. I mean it destroyed him,” said Ashley Mayse.

The family said the evening was ruined for them, and Anthony says he’ll not go see that Santa again.  “I’d probably go to the mall and stuff but not that Santa – I will never be at Forest City again doing that.”
