Nothing is safe from woke culture, even visits with Santa.

A Santa in Illinois was fired after a video went viral, showing the man telling a young boy that he would not give him a nerf gun. “No guns.”

The boy looks back at his mother, confused. The mother even clarifies to Santa that her son was not asking for a real gun, but the foam toy. “Not even a nerf gun,” the ‘woke’ Santa replied.

Things take a sour turn when the boy starts to cry. Although the Santa attempts to console him, the mom comforts her son and carries him away.

After the video went viral, mall officials took action. The ‘woke’ Santa was fired, and the mall sent another Santa to the boy’s house with a special delivery: his very own nerf gun!
