The man playing Santa Claus at a Columbus area mall is under fire this weekend after he referred to children as “God’s sexy little creatures.” The comments were made to an ABC 6 reporter filming a segment at the mall this weekend. The man behind the Santa costume, Raul Martino, says the comments were taken out of context.
“I love children, but not in that way. I think they are beautiful, not sexually attractive,” Martino said. “I rarely have an erection under my costume, if that’s what you are thinking.”
Mall officials said they are aware of the comments and are investigating further before publicly commenting on the matter.
