A bonkers Santa startled a bunch of families with his sweary language

Apparently Santa’s human too, much to a bunch of kids’ distress!

Bad Santa?

A UK man is being dubbed “Bad Santa” after he got very sweary and de-bearded when an emergency cropped up. It all happened in Cambridgeshire in the UK when a fire alarm caused the red-suited fellow in question too to switch from jolly gent to marauding marshal.

“Organisers of a Christmas event have apologised 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’,” CNN reports.

Guests at the event were mortified and took to social media to unpack what happened at the Christmas party gone wrong.

“He came charging in, ripped his hat and beard off in front of 50 odd kids and started shouting and swearing at people to leave,” one Facebook post about the upsetting turn of events read. “There is no way he should be allowed near a child.”

Trying to help?

A mum told news outlet Cambridgeshire Live: “My friend’s little boy was upset as his dad was carrying him when Santa told them ‘to get the f*** out’,” CNN says.

The festival organisers were very sorry, but said Santa was simply trying to help.

Santa was upstairs in his grotto … and immediately assisted in the evacuation of the building” upon hearing the fire alarm, a spokesperson for Festival Events St Ives (FESt) said. 
“FESt wish to apologise for any offence or distress caused to parents and children by the attempts to ensure all visitors and staff had exited the building and were safe.”
