A Philadelphia-based black family has refused an invitation to return to Sesame Place, a children’s theme park, following an incident involving one of the mascots, Your Content has learned.

The family’s two children were allegedly snubbed by the mascot, leading them to launch a $25 million lawsuit against the company. The incident, captured in a viral video, has left the children traumatized, according to their lawyers.

In response to the allegations, Sesame Place extended an invitation to the family, but they declined, stating that their children are still dealing with the emotional impact of the incident. Furthermore, it has come to light that around 25 to 30 more families have emerged with similar claims against the company.

The mascot in question, Rosita, a bilingual character from Sesame Street, has faced accusations of racism, leading to the character being removed from the park. As investigations continue, traces of Rosita’s presence have reportedly been scarce, as stated by FLIPBOARD.
