Well it’s meant to be the season to be jolly... but this poor kid’s visit with Santa didn’t exactly go to plan.
9-year-old Anthony Mayse from the US has big dreams of getting an iPod touch and a drone this year for Christmas... so when he went to visit Santa this week that’s exactly what he asked for…
But in return, he got body shamed.
Santa told him to, “Lay off the hamburgers and french fries.”
Obviously Anthony didn’t feel too good after that… he even burst into tears.
Tbh we don’t blame him.
Anthony told ABC, “It affected me so bad that I was crying until I went to bed that night… And I want to say to him, ‘You don’t want to disrespect a 9-year-old. Even though what shape and size you are, it doesn’t matter.’ ”
He even tore up the photo he with got with Santa.
Once again tbh we don’t blame him.
After the incident, Ashley Mayse, Anthony’s mother, complained to the organisers and the Santa apologised… but Ashley is convinced that he didn't mean it.
Oh dear, why can't we just spread come Christmas joy.
And no matter what you look like, you’re so perfect.
Don’t forget that.
