Kids in Maine wanted to meet Santa, but ended up visiting a real Ebenezer Scrooge instead.
Parents who brought their kids to the Maine Mall in South Portland say they were met by a shopping center Santa who was rude and dismissive of their children and would not even let the kids sit on his lap.
“He just put his hands on his lap so I couldn’t go on,” 6-year-old Chantel Mailhiot tells WGME-TV.
When the little girl asked for an “American Girl” doll, Santa replied, “American football.”
Her mother, Jessica Mailhiot, said Santa’s attitude soured when she refused to purchase $20 worth of photos. Other parents complained to mall officials and vented online.
Steve Hardwin, owner of Worldwide Photography, the studio that employs St. Nick, refused to identify the man playing Santa. The Santa has been sacked.
