Outrageous Mall Santa Resigns After Allegedly Fat-Shaming 9-Year-Old Boy
A 9-year-old North Carolina boy claims he was fat-shamed during a mall visit to St. Nick over the weekend. While asking for an iTouch and a drone, Anthony Mayse said Santa had something a little extra to say instead of just "Merry Christmas."
"When I got done, he said lay off the hamburgers and french fries, and that really just disrespected me and I felt awful," Anthony told local ABC affiliate WLOS.

Anthony said he cried himself to sleep that night, and his mother, Ashley Mayse, called for the mall Santa to be fired.
"I was just mind blown," the mother said. "I wished a million times that we would have never went."
According to a statement from town officials, the mall Santa has apologized to Anthony and the Mayse family and has since resigned from his post.
Maybe he should be the one to lay off the milk and cookies...
