Baltimore Family Sues Sesame Place $25 Million For Discrimination
Consequences and repercussions are en route as the now-infamous Sesame Place is being sued for racial discrimination. According to WBALTV, a Black family has filed suit for $25 million claiming that “Elmo,” “Ernie,” “Telly Monster” and “Abby Cadabby” all refused to engage with their 5-year-old daughter and several other Black children.
