Apparently Santa Claus does not like the Toronto Maple Leafs very much.
The Toronto Sun reports that Santa Claus at Lowe’s Toronto Christmas Market told a three-year old boy that the Leafs ‘suck’.
This was also after telling him his red plaid jacked made him look just like Paul Bunyan.
Not sure why Santa was feeling so mean that day.
Here’s what the Sun wrote:
Then he said, ‘Oh, you’re wearing a Toronto Maple Leafs tuque (hat), you shouldn’t be wearing that, they suck.’ At that point, I took my son and told him we should go, Santa isn’t being very good today.”
The boys mother said that he was inconsolable, crying all the way to their home in Mississauga.
He wanted to know who Paul Bunyan was? He wanted to know why Santa said the Toronto Maple Leafs suck, I told him Santa was having a bad day. I can’t really tell him Santa’s a jerk.”
The man in the Santa suit was apparently fired as a result of the incident.
