Toronto Santa fired for telling child the "Maple Leafs suck"

The Santa Claus at a Toronto Christmas market is out of a job after telling a three-year-old that the Toronto Maple Leafs "suck."

Mary Trent of Mississauga complained to the market via Facebook, writing that old Kris Kringle "pointed out my son's Toronto Maple leafs winter toque and said he shouldnt be wearing that and that the Maple leafs suck!"

Organizers of the Lowe's Christmas Market apologized and, according to a report in the Toronto Sun, fired the Santa in question.

A similar incident occurred in the U.S. earlier this week. A mall in Maine sacked their Santa Claus after children and parents complained he was rude, grumpy and wouldn't even let one child sit on his lap. One young patron said when she asked Santa for an American Girl doll, he replied she'd get an "American football."

^He tells the truth. Here dude I'll bail you out. You can rename this The Official Bad Santa thread:

SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine - A mall in Maine has sacked Santa Claus after children and parents complained he was rude, grumpy and wouldn't even let one child sit on his lap.

Officials at the Maine Mall in South Portland say they're looking for a jollier Santa and hope to have him in place Thursday.

Jessica Mailhiot and her 6-year-old daughter, Chantel, went to see Santa this week. They tell WGME-TV (http://bit.ly/RpPkak ) he was rude and wouldn't let the girl sit on his lap when they said they didn't want to buy a $20 photo.

Chantel says when she asked Santa for an American Girl doll, he replied she'd get an "American football."

When the mom posted her story online, others shared similar experiences.

The station contacted the Santa, but he didn't want to comment
