Santa Fired for Telling Kid "Leafs Suck."

56 posts in this topic

TO Sun Dec 7, 2012. Mary Trent says she was shocked by the behaviour of the Lowe’s Toronto Christmas Market Santa Claus as her son approached him. After Santa arrived a half hour late for his appearance, he proceeded to insult the boy’s red plaid coat.

“The first thing he tells my son is, ‘Oh, you look like Paul Bunyan,’ ” she said. “Really? Is that appropriate?

“Then he said, ‘Oh, you’re wearing a Toronto Maple Leafs tuque, you shouldn’t be wearing that, they suck.’ At that point, I took my son and told him we should go, Santa isn’t being very good today.”

Trent said her son was inconsolable and cried all the way home to Mississauga.

Trent’s post prompted an online apology Thursday from the organizers via Facebook. Mathew Rosenblatt, creator of the European-style event, confirmed to the Toronto Sun that Saint Nick had been fired.

“The person that had spoken those words is no longer at the Toronto Christmas Market and will not be there in the future,” Rosenblatt said.

Fair enough a mall Santa's job is to live a lie, how dare he tell the truth.

It's the morals behind allowing your kids to visit Santa that I'm more concerned with.

Kids need to toughen up by learning the truth early on.. Kudos to Santa, trying to build a stronger future.

If Santa speaks the truth does this make him real?

I don't trust Santa's opinion on hockey anyway. He's is Dutch, right?

What do they know about hockey? He just got lucky on that guess.

Go back to long track speed skating, buddy.

As soon as I read this I knew we were dealing with some sort of super crazy overprotective mom.

Any word on him wielding an axe or having a blue ox?

The kid may not have known that Santa isn't real, but he sure as hell already knew that the Leafs suck.

Even preschoolers know that.

If this boy didn't, Santa did him a favour and saved him a Christmas wish that would have been wasted on a pathetic Phil Kessel jersey - one he would have wound up throwing away in a year or two when he wised up a little.

What's the issue here?

Whatever, oldnews. Kessel is better than Seguin and Hamilton combined.

Don't you believe in fairy tales?
