Distillery District Santa Tells 3-Year-Old 'Leafs Suck,' Gets Fired
Someone's been a very bad Santa

It seems someone didn’t give the Lowe’s Toronto Christmas Market Santa enough milk and cookies. The not-so-jolly old soul was canned for insulting a three-year-old and telling him the “Leafs Suck.”

Mary Trent was appalled by the Santa’s behaviour after he arrived half an hour late for his appearance. “The first thing he tells my son is, ‘Oh, you look like Paul Bunyan,’” she said.

“Then he said, ‘Oh, you’re wearing a Toronto Maple Leafs tuque, 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,” Trent told Toronto Sun. “My son was very, very upset about it.”

Trent posted about the incident on the event’s Facebook page and received an online apology from the organizers. Mathew Rosenblatt, creator of Market, confirmed to the Sun that Saint Nick had been fired.
