A Florida shopping mall has formally apologized to a family and placed its Santa in “counseling” after the man jokingly told a little girl Hillary Clinton was on his “naughty list.”
The man, who has not been named, was working as a mall Santa at the Seminole Towne Center in Sanford, Florida.
After a 10-year-old girl told him what she wanted for Christmas, the Santa informed her she was on his “nice list.”
“Do you know who is on my naughty list? Hillary Clinton,” he then allegedly said.
The girl’s mother complained to mall officials.
The company that provided the mall Santa issued an apology to the family.
The man was sent to “counseling” with human resources officials.
The company has not said if he will be allowed to keep his job.
