The magic of Christmas was ruined for one little girl in the US – after Santa Claus told her she was on his “Naughty List”.
Four-year-old Brooke Rarity was thrilled to be meeting Father Christmas on the famous Coca-Cola truck and was going to ask him for “anything pink”.
But instead she was reduced to tears.
Santa told the youngster: “I recognise you. Are you Brooke? I hear you’re on the Naughty List.”
The girl’s mother, Kellie, 32, said: “Whoever this Santa is he’s definitely in the wrong job.
“He had absolutely no Christmas cheer at all. Brooke was heartbroken.
“She was really teary all day and she kept asking if she wasn’t getting any presents. She even told her pals at nursery about it the next day.”
