Man in Grinch costume sparks debate after he threatens to send family to back of line in viral TikTok
The Grinch is known for not being the nicest of guys.
Not only does he hate Christmas, but he also just really dislikes people in general and frequently hurls snarky comments their way.
Sarcastic, rude, and grumpy are all prime aspects of the furry green character—and yet, each holiday season, families bring the Grinch into their homes (by hiring paid actors) or travel far to pay him a visit in various attractions parks across the country.
But when a family stopped by to meet the Grinch at Seuss Land at Universal’s Islands of Adventure in Orlando, Florida, and shared their unusual experience on TikTok, some viewers thought the worker might have crossed the line between loveable Dr.Seuss character and straight-up jerk.
At the start of the video, shared by Kay (@hi.im..kay), the Grinch is seen talking to a coworker and insists he’s “trying to work”. Kay—who is standing in line waiting to take a picture with him—shouts, “But you’re late!” which is about when everything seems to take a turn for the worse
“Who asked you?” the Grinch quips.
“I’m telling you that you’re laying down and you’re late,” she replies, to which he responds by saying he’s in “a company meeting” and then threatens her by saying: “Stop talking, it’s not even your turn. Do you want to go to the end of the line? I can make that happen.”
