Santas find hot seat at the mall
Placeholder Image
For anyone who may have missed the story, a mall Santa in North Carolina has come under heavy fire for reportedly telling a plump, 9-year-old boy he needs to lay off the hamburgers and fries.It may seem odd for a fat guy who gorges on milk and cookies at all hours of the night to be giving dietary tips, but this Santa just did. It could be the best Christmas gift Santa could ever give if his advice encouraged the lad to shed some weight and avoid a life of obesity. But these words of wisdom were instead met with a giant complaint from the boy and his mother.The boy told a TV station he was crying until he went to bed that night and also ripped up the picture he'd taken with Santa.
