Parents are outraged after a man dressed as Santa Claus burst into a children’s music event and started swearing.
The man, who was undergoing Santa duties in another part of the building, stormed the family event in Cambridge, England, on Sunday when a fire alarm went off and urged everyone to evacuate the building.
“People were in the process of vacating the building and in came angry Santa swearing, using the most vile language, ripping off his hat and beard with steam literally coming from his ears,” one mother told Cambridgeshire Live.
He was yelling at people to get the f#@k out!
The fire alarm had been set off by a smoke machine at the family event, the mother said.
Another parent was so horrified by Santa’s foul-mouthed intrusion that he took to the organiser’s Facebook page to complain.
In a statement to Yahoo Lifestyle, Festival Events defended his frantic outburst.
“Santa was upstairs in his grotto, an event organised by Festival Events St. Ives (a voluntary organisation) and immediately assisted in the evacuation of the building,” the statement reads.
“FESt wish to apologise for any offence or distress caused to parents and children by the attempts to ensure all visitors and staff had exited the building and were safe.”
