A mother is screaming racism after a family trip to the amusement park Sesame Place in Philadelphia. She has shared the video on social media in a now-viral clip.
The viral video footage shows two black kids waiting for a high-five from the Sesame Street character "Rosita" only to have the employee pass over them.
The mother of the two kids immediately went to social media and called out the employee's actions as racist. She posted on Twitter that the employee playing Rosita “proceeded to hug the little white girl next to us.”
Check it out:
The employee who performs in the Rosita costume seems to engage in a pattern of deliberately ignoring Black children who tries to engage with the character. This employee needs to be fired TODAY, unless Sesame Place condones this type of anti-Black energy pic.twitter.com/PThOwsnS5F

Sesame Place issued a statement on Instagram:
Our brand, our park and our employees stand for inclusivity and equality in all forms. That is what Sesame Place is all about and we do no tolerate any behaviors in our parks that are contrary to that commitment.
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.
