Bad Santa? NC boy claims he was body shamed by St. Nick

FOREST CITY, N.C. — It’s practically straight out of a “Bad Santa” movie.

A North Carolina mother wants the local Santa Claus fired after saying things that put her 9-year-old son in tears, according to WLOS.

On Saturday, an otherwise jolly time on Main Street led to a holiday moment the boy would like to forget.

“I went out and started crying, because I just felt so bad,” Anthony Mayse said of his conversation with Father Christmas.
