Racism Accusations Hit Sesame Place After Character Doesn’t Hug Black Girl

The girl’s mother is threatening to file a racial discrimination lawsuit against the children’s theme park

“The performer portraying the Rosita character has confirmed that the ‘no’ hand gesture seen several times in the video was not directed at 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 op, which is not permitted,” the company said. “The Rosita performer did not specifically ignore the girls and is devastated about the situation.”
