NJ Woman Shares Viral Video Of Chuck E. Cheese Mascot Allegedly Ignoring Her Child | NewsAugust 3, 2022
A New Jersey mother is accusing Chuck E. Cheese of racism.
The mother, who goes by the Twitter username @belllahijabi, wrote, “On July 30 at Chuck E Cheese in Wayne, NJ, my 2yo was racially discriminated against. As you can see, he gives all of the yt kids hi-5s & PURPOSELY ignored my black baby.”
She continued, “When confronted, he ignored me as well.”
The mom also wrote the manager “made excuses” and said “she’s ‘sorry I feel that way’ but he didn’t see her, even after showing her the PROOF in the video.”
Chuck E. Cheese has yet to comment on the video, which now has over 3.4 million views.
The accusation against Chuck E. Cheese comes after several complaints of racist behavior from Sesame Place characters at the theme park in Philadelphia. Quinton Burns, a father of one of the kids who was reportedly ignored, is suing SeaWorld Parks, the owner of Sesame Place, and is seeking $25 million in damages.
