A mall Santa Claus in Waycross, Georgia caused a Kringle kerfuffle when was pulled from duty this month, after a photo he shared on Facebook made it back to mall management. And the incident has caused a bit of outrage on social media and a flood of negative comments on the mall’s Facebook page.

Frank Skinner, who has played Santa for 50 years, shared the photo of himself wearing a MAGA hat on his own Facebook page. “It really was an innocent thing. It really was,” he told Jacksonville, Florida station WTLV. When that photo got back to the mall, it cost him his gig.

The mall quickly responded when a customer submitted the image and complained online. “We apologize for this occurrence and will be addressing this right away. The Mall at Waycross does not support any specific political party. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Kindly, Mall Management.”
