People are freaking out over a ‘Bad Santa’ that made kids cry when he started cussing up a storm:

Ok, ok… I know what you’re thinking. This dude shouldn’t be anywhere near kids. And I get why you think that. But you’ve got it ALL WRONG, folks. This dude was TRYNNA SAVE LIVES.
Organizers of a Christmas event have apologized to outraged parents after a fire alarm reportedly prompted Santa Claus to burst out of his grotto, rip off his beard and scream at children to “get the f**k out.”
Outraged?! They should be THANKFUL. PSH.
The incident occurred at an event in the English town of St. Ives, Cambridgeshire on Sunday, when an alarm at a nearby but unconnected event caused an evacuation of the building, organizers said.
While parents and children were already evacuating, Santa Claus tore into the room and started causing havoc, a customer said on Facebook.
“He came changing (sic) in, ripped his hat and beard off in front of 50 odd kids and started shouting and swearing at people to leave,” the post said.
This nightmare before Christmas prompted an apology from the event’s organizers, who explained that the fire alarm had gone off in an unrelated family-friendly “rave” taking place in the same building, and that Santa had merely been trying to help.
“Santa was upstairs in his grotto… and immediately assisted in the evacuation of the building” upon hearing the fire alarm, Festival Events St. Ives (FESt) said.
“FESt wish to apologize for any offense or distress caused to parents and children by the attempts to ensure all visitors and staff had exited the building and were safe,” they added.
BAD SANTA WAS JUST TRYING TO MAKE SURE THOSE F***ING KIDS WEREN’T BURNED TO A CRISP.
He’s a hero.
