Parents in Cape Coral, FL are freaking out after an innocent holiday event turned…grinchy.
NBC 2 says:
“Cape Coral’s Festival of Lights was Saturday, and some people said instead of it being a lighthearted night filled with entertainment and visits with Santa Claus, some children were left in tears.
A Cape Coral mom took cell phone of a man with a giant sign, in the middle of the excitement yelling that Santa isn’t real and parents are telling their children lies.”
One mother said her daughter was too excited to notice the man, but many wanted police to act.
NBC 2 continues:
Cape Coral Police was at the event but said they couldn’t do anything because the man was exercising his freedom of speech.
Police said it could only intervene if the man used a voice enhancer like a megaphone or created a riot, which he didn’t.
You’re a mean one Mr. Grinch.
