Abcde (why parents do that to a sweet girl)


Santa fired for rebuffing autistic girl

MISSION VIEJO, Calif. (KTLA) -
Two actors who portrayed Santa Claus and an elf at a shopping mall in Orange County have been fired after turning away a 7-year-old autistic girl and her service dog, officials said.

Abcde (pronounced Ab-Suh-Dee) Santos waited in line with her family and the dog, named Pup-Cake, for more than 30 minutes at the Shops at Mission Viejo before the incident occurred Sunday, according to Julie Marie Miller, a spokeswoman for the Santoses.

"To her dismay, Santa was afraid of her dog, a sweet pit bull with as patient a disposition as Abcde," Miller said in a statement. Although the family offered to remove the animal from the area, "Santa still refused to see the child," she said, attributing the decision to "what we can only assume is the influence of BSL (breed-specific legislation)."

Miller described the encounter in a news release that was published on social media. She also contacted the mall's management group and the organization that had hired the Santa and elf actors.

The latter company, which provides Santas and Easter Bunnys annually to shopping malls throughout the U.S., issued a response on Monday.

"The entire team at The Noerr Programs sincerely apologizes for any distress caused by this situation, and truly regrets the incident," said CEO Judy Noerr. "We have reached out to the girl's family, in an effort to extend a private Santa visit with complimentary photos of both the child and her service dog."

In a later news release, Miller thanked the management team at shopping center and its parent company, The Simon Property Group, "for swiftly responding to our concerns."

"Santa and the elf have subsequently been fired," she said.

The statement was shared by The Shops at Mission Viejo on its Facebook page, which added: "We look forward to welcoming back the Santos family and Pup-Cake for a special Santa experience." Phone Post 3.0

ABCDE is a ridiculous name for a girl BUT Pup-Cake is an amazing name for a dog.  I'm conflicted.

I guess its better than Fe-Mal-e, but not by much.

That kid is already going to have a difficult enough time in life without that stupid fucking name, fuck those parents.

i know this 45 yr old chinese guy named "Dvdr"

 

when his parents first came here from china they asked my mother in law what some american boy names were...they liked "David"

their heavy chinese accents made them pronounce it "DIV- DER"......lol

Meth head chick in my son's third grade class has a little girl with the same name.....unbelievable.

Pitbull as a service dog??

Also what does a child with autism need a service dog for?

Lastly that name... Why? Pretty soon when you name your daughter or son something normal like Elizabeth or John, they'll be the only kids in their class with names like that Phone Post 3.0
