A woman in New Jersey has taken Chuck E. Cheese to task for allegedly engaging in racial discrimination by disregarding an attempted high five.
The mom, who goes by Umm Safa on Twitter, recorded a clip of her kid leaping up and down in excitement before extending her hand in Wayne, New Jersey, on July 30 at the CEC facility.
The mouse can be seen giving high fives to white children on stage before appearing to ignore the young black girl.
What’s not clear is whether or not the person inside the costume could actually see the little girl, but that doesn’t matter to Safa.
Safa writes, “My 2yo was racially discriminated against. As you can see, he gives all of the yt kids hi-5s & PURPOSELY ignored my black baby. When confronted, he ignored me as well. The manager made excuses for him.”
Safa says the manager tried to explain that the person in the costume couldn’t see the little girl, and she’s “sorry I feel that way” … but Safa exclaims, “This is getting out of hand!!!”
Rosita is shown in a viral video from Philadelphia’s Sesame Place ignoring two young black girls who are trying to interact, as we previously mentioned. The park and the parents of the young girls have spoken in private about the best way to resolve the situation.
