I’m not sure if this one is weaker than the infamous, “The airline didn’t give me a Diet Coke can because of Islamophobia” thing the media was pushing some years back. But after years of terrorizing random underpaid retail employees and middle-aged ladies with the ‘Karen’ racial slur and trying to get them fired via Twitter, the media’s sense of appropriateness has been deadened.
Here’s the full agonized retelling on NPR in tones more appropriate to describing a weekend of shootings in Chicago or genocide to discuss a person in a smelly Sesame Street costume they can barely see out of being accused of racism for not specifically hugging two kids.
Sesame Place Philadelphia has issued an apology and said its employees will undergo more training following backlash from a video showing an employee in a Sesame character costume seemingly ignore two small Black girls during a parade.
The video shows the two girls decked out in Cookie Monster and Abby Cadabby sparkly backpacks waiting along the side of the parade as a person in a costume of another character, Rosita, makes their way down. Before reaching the girls, the character gives out high-fives to another small child and an adult, both who appear white.
When the Sesame employee reaches the two Black girls — who have their hands outstretched — the character waves them off and keeps on walking, leaving the girls with looks of confusion and disappointment.
Rosita was the first Mexican bilingual puppet for the annoying increasingly woke production so this is super-serious stuff. Neither NPR nor the black nationalists who have taken up this case have any idea who was actually in the costume.
But why bother when you can shriek racism because the person in the costume they can barely see out of didn’t specifically go up to hug your kids.
Of course, had Rosita hugged them, she would probably have been accused of racism and brutality too. And there’d be a lot of talk about “black bodies”.
“THIS DISGUSTING person blatantly told our kids NO then proceeded to hug the little white girl next to us! Then when I went to complain about it, they looking at me like I’m crazy,” Instagram user @__jodii__ said in her post. “I asked the lady who the character was and I wanted to see a supervisor and she told me SHE DIDNT KNOW !!”
“THIS DISGUSTING person blatantly told our kids NO then proceeded to hug the little white girl next to us! Then when I went to complain about it, they looking at me like I’m crazy.”
There’s no such thing as crazy anymore when leftist woke crazies control the culture.
Sesame Street has profusely apologized for everything and vowed to scourge the employee with copies of shredded Ibram X. Kendi racist tracts and… there was no racism.
“Regarding the incident yesterday. …the performer portraying the Rosita character has confirmed that the ‘no’ hand gesture seen several times in the video was not directed to any specific person, rather it was a response to multiple requests from someone in the crowd who asked Rosita to hold their child for a photo, which is not permitted. The Rosita performer did not intentionally ignore the girls and is devastated about the misunderstanding.”
But the black nationalists and their white racist enablers won’t be satisfied until she’s doxxed and has her life destroyed… unless she’s a member of a minority group in which case we’ll never heard about this again, but everyone involved will get a free copy of the 1619 Project.
“Further backlash ensued when singer Kelly Rowland chimed in with her frustration. The Destiny’s Child member posted on her Instagram stories: “Okay so had that been me, that whole parade would have been in flames. Like, are you serious? You’re not going to speak to my child?”
As long as they’re mostly peaceful flames.
The question is how much longer sane people of all races are going to keep putting up with this nonsense while leftist racists keep committing cultural arson.
