North Carolina boy accuses Santa Claus of fat-shaming him

Santa Claus left one boy from North Carolina in tears after he accuses old Saint Nick of "fat-shaming" him.



"And when I got done, he said, 'lay off the hamburgers and French fries' and that really just disrespected me and I felt awful," says Anthony Mayse.



The family stopped to see Santa, but said he ruined the experience.



"It affected me so bad that I was crying until I went to bed that night," says Mayse.



The boy ended up tearing up his picture with Santa, and the family reported the incident.



Santa eventually apologized, and so did his boss.



The family says instead of sending Santa a letter this year, they hope he gets a pink slip.
