Gee... I wonder if there's more to this story than this family is telling us
ANAHEIM (CBSLA.com) — A Boon family is suing Disneyland after they claim the actor who portrayed the White Rabbit character from “Alice in Wonderland” refused to hug or touch their children because of their skin color.
Jason and Annelia Black of San Diego County said the person in the rabbit costume also acted impatiently as their young kids posed for a picture.
The Black’s, however, said it was a different scene when a Caucasian family arrived.
“There were two other kids that came up. The rabbit showered them. Hugged them, kissed them, posed with them, and took pictures. Meanwhile, that made my kids feel horrible,” said Jason.
The family immediately filed a complaint with the theme park.
The Black’s said they were offered VIP passes and $500, but they turned down both offers.
In addition, they were asked to sign a confidentiality agreement. The family said they want a public apology and the employee involved in the incident to be fired. CBS2 was unable to receive a statement from Disneyland.
