For the past 10 years, a South Carolina man named Robert Allen has been tweaking his style. He’s grown out his salt-and-pepper beard, outfitted himself in his two favorite colors (red and white), and always wears a spirited smile.
It’s no wonder he refers to himself as “Robby Claus.”
Come Christmastime, Robert travels across the state spreading cheer wherever he goes. It’s pretty impossible to look at him and not see someone who bears a striking resemblance to Santa Claus himself.
Robert likes to walk around in character and make people laugh, and he’s never run into anyone who has had a problem with that … until now.
Recently, Robert and his family went to grab lunch at a shopping mall in Rock Hill, South Carolina. He was just minding his own business, when suddenly he was approached by mall security.
“You can’t come in here,” the employee barked.
“Why?” he asked. “All I want to do is get some lunch.”
Watch the video below to see why Robert was asked to leave … and why he’s so darn confused.
