Sesame Place apologizes to Black family snubbed by Rosita mascot, pledges change

Sesame Place issued a lengthy apology on Thursday to the family of two Black girls who were snubbed by a mascot at the Bucks County theme park last Saturday. The Rosita character was seen in a viral video refusing to give high-fives to the girls, which prompted outrage and calls for the employee to be fired. Sesame Place has committed to mandatory diversity training for its employees, but has not indicated whether the employee will be fired.
