In the wake of controversy from a video showing a Sesame Street character costumed employee seemingly ignoring two tiny Black girls during a parade

Cookie Monster and Abby Cadabby backpacks adorn the two girls as they wait on the sidelines of the parade for Rosita, a character from another show, to make their way down.

Two black girls have their hands outstretched when the Sesame staff reaches them and waves them off, leaving the girls looking bewildered and dismayed.

A new video, according to an attorney for the family at the center of Sesame Place’s claimed discrimination scandal, shows a character purposely ignoring two Black girls.

With over 750,000 views since Brown shared it on her own Instagram page, the video has gone viral celebrities and public figures began speaking out after the video was released.

As a result of the disparity in treatment shown in the video, many people, including Destiny’s Child vocalist Kelly Rowland, expressed their indignation.

Anger was vented online by other performers and activists as well as social media users in response to the theme park’s recent tragedy.

Sesame Street, a public television program for young children, premiered on November 10, 1969, and it will be in its 53nd season in 2022.
