Found December 07, 2012 on Outside the Boxscore:
We here at Outside the Boxscore will neither confirm nor deny the existence of Santa Claus but one Toronto-version of Santa was fired after he made negative comments to a little kid about the Toronto Maple Leafs. The fine folks over at Larry Brown Sports have more details: The Santa apparently showed up 30 minutes late for his gig at Lowe’s Toronto Christmas Market and then proceeded to insult a 3-year-old boy. “The first thing he tells my son is, ‘Oh, you look like Paul Bunyan,’” the child’s mother told the Toronto Sun. “Really? Is that appropriate? “Then he said, ‘Oh, you’re wearing a Toronto Maple Leafs tuque, you shouldn’t be wearing that, they suck.’” The mother took the insults as a clear sign to leave. She says her son was crying all the way home and asked who Paul Bunyan was. The mother says all she could tell her son was that Santa was having a bad day. As you may figure, the child's mother decided to take to the Facebook to complain about the Santa's decorum: Just came back from the market and I am fuming! The market itself was so so, great freebies and great carol singers. But, I have a 3 year old and the reason we went there was for him to see Santa. SANTA WAS A JERK! My son waited in line during a cold and snowy afternoon and the first thing Santa told him was that his thick GAP black and red jacket made him look like Paul Bunyan. Then he also pointed out my son’s Toronto Maple leafs winter toque and said he shouldnt be wearing that and that the Maple leafs suck! What an awful experience for my boy, because Santa said his favorite team sucked! then my son wanted to know who Paul Bunyan was. It was the worst Santa experience!  The event organizers apologized to the woman and the Maple Leaf-hating Santa was let go.
