The Kid That Was Fat Shamed By Santa Should Probably Take His Constructive Criticism Under Advisement
WFLA- 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.”
You know what sickens me? The fact that people are going to act like this is a 'Bad Santa' situation. Who the hell are we to question the guy who has children sitting on him every damn day during the holidays? If anyone knows how fat is too fat for a 9 year old then it's him. Not only that, but if anyone can get a young boy to change his diet to something that won't have him confined to a scooter by his late 20's then it's that jolly son of a bitch that's responsible for bringing him toys. I'm assuming this kid is still a Saint Nick truther or it would be super weird for him to continue waiting in line to plop down on the laps of older man in costume every December. If that's the case then he doesn't deserve presents after valuing his continued gluttony over the constructive criticism of the guy who knows a child that could benefit from a green or two when it starts causing his ever-resilient knee structural damage.
Pretty sure every mall Santa ends his encounters with greedy little brats by saying "make sure you be a good boy/girl now". How is telling a kid to ease off the carbs before he ends up finding nothing under the tree but a hospital bill for the coronary he's going to need by the time he hits double digits any different? This kid is under the impression that Santa makes a list of every person in the world and checks it twice, but he can't even ask his enabling mother to take a gander at McDonald's Nutritonal Facts? Quit your crying kid and finish your damn veggies. Not just so you can say you earned your gifts, but so that you live to see the day you find out the bearded guy in the red suit that fat shamed you is just some down-on-his-luck schmuck looking to supplement his income.
P.S. This mall Santa was definitely a dick, but he's doing a better job parenting that kid than the mother that let her 9 year old get big enough to smush Santa into painfully true observations that cut deeper than the knife that kid will be under if he stays on the 'Super Size Me' dietary plan.
