No, i'm not talking about the Santa we know and love from the pole.
A mall Santa from California has been fired along with one of his working elves from the day of this incident.
Meet Abcde Santos (pronounced Ab-suh-dee) and her service PitBull dog named Pupcake :
This 7 year old girl along with her dog went to the mall, as millions of other kids do each year, to meet Santa. She had her dog with her (as she always does) because she is autistic.
Imagine the heart break of this child as Santa and his elf turned her away.
Santa claimed to have an allergy to dogs, but even after the family offered to leave the dog at home, he would not see her.
It later was said that the reason behind this was because of the breed of the dog, although I can't help but think it had a little something to do with her autism as well, but that is just my opinion.
After a social media viral campaign with #savepupcakeschristmas the mall officials invited the little girl AND her dog to come have a private session of photos and a meeting with the new Santa.
I am glad to hear it all worked out in the end, but I mean, come on Santa!
How dare you!
