A slew of bigoted shoppers at the trendy Mall of America in Minnesota are threatening to boycott after the mall hired its first black Santa Claus for 4 days.
Readers sounded off in the comments section of the Minneapolis newspaper. Many of the comments revealed the racism that divided this country in post-Obama America.
The reaction was so vociferous that the newspaper was forced to shut down the comments section.
“Looks like we had to turn comments off on story about Mall of America’s first black Santa. Merry Christmas everyone!” an editor wrote.
A report on a CBS Minnesota website that was inundated with racist and vile comments was also shut down.
This poor Santa, looks like he may be out of his seasonal gig.
