Sesame Street-themed attraction Sesame Place Philadelphia has released two public statements of regret after being accused of racism.

On Saturday, a clip from the show Rosita was posted online, showing her ignoring two Black girls in a parade while they were marching.

An adult who was with the girls posted a video to their Instagram account with a caption outlining what had happened in the video.

“The kids wanted to see the characters as we were leaving Sesame Place. It was disgusting to see this person hug the small white girl next to us after openly telling our children no.

The video rapidly went viral on social media, with many people accusing Sesame Place of bigotry. Many others had the same impressions of the park. On Instagram.

Rosita’s hand gestures were made in response to multiple requests from the crowd to have Rosita hold their child for a photo, which is not permitted. 

“Those magnificent girls will never forget that experience!” wrote Kelly Rowland of Destiny’s Child in response to the statement. THINK ABOUT IT!

Only two parks in the world are dedicated completely to the children’s television show Sesame Street, which first aired in 1969. Another Sesame Place park can be found in the city of San Diego, CA.
