Pickler's job as a professional Santa was a constant joke on the latest season of "The Biggest Loser." With his long white beard and protruding stomach, the 63-year-old looked every bit the part he played.
"The world is going to have to change their acceptance of what Santa looks like," Pickler said. "Santa is a role model, and kids don't want to have a role model that's fat."

I suppose doing away with white Santa's will be next.
You need to accept people for who they are. Unless they’re fat.
Next thing you know he’ll be wearing his belt
up by his boobs.
Santa is now going to have to be black(ish) and oily and married to a yeti. No christmas pork roast, just the roasted dog, kobe beef and aragula. And the reindeer swapped out with camels.
Ah krap! What other jobs are there for big old white men in the Obama Great Recession!?
Next year, the title will be “Should Santa Claus still be straight?”. Leave it to libtards to ruin life on earth.
Yup. LBGT Santa’s.
If we return to a more christian origin of Santa Claus, St. Nicholas he would probably be thin. This is from Yahoo
Was the Real Santa Claus Fat?
It was rare for anyone besides nobility to be obese during the time in which St. Nicholas was alive, and bishops rarely indulged in such earthly and gluttenous pleasures. Most depictions of St. Nicholas actually reveal him to be somewhat shockingly thin. This would be consistent with his reputation as a selfless person who gave to those in need, instead of over-indulging in wealth.
Why are the reindeer brown? Sure, have all the browns do all the menial labor of lugging around that sleigh and an old fat white guy.
Leave Santa Claus alone - good grief!!!!!!
The comments are so incredibly stupid and ignorant, it is mind boggling- we are domed if this is who America is becoming.
(ok there are a few of reason but most are from PC liberals)
..straight? ...married? ...white? ...male?
this stuff is just sick.
Libtards are for preserving every cultural identity except the white european one.
The skinny Santa in that PC-fest Polar Express made me want to puke.
Is it possible to be both thin and jolly? Yeah, thin and happy...but jolly?
Leave it to the kids and soon Santa will be “looking like a fool with his pants on the ground.”
Wal Mart greeters.....
Get rid of Santa Claus and enshrine the Victoria’s Secrets Angels.
Well, Clement Moore wrote "He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf" with "a little round belly, That shook when he laughed, like a bowlful of jelly" in 1822, some 64 years before Coke was created. 'Course Moore's Santa was dressed in furs from his heed to his foot, and, oh, he smoked!
But you're right. Coke did solidify our image of Santa.
sorry, but in the ObamaGreatDepression even WalMart greeter jobs are not reliable
Santa needs to be fat in order to survive living and working at the North pole. It’s called survival insulation. If he had his gift factory in Florida then I’d expect him to be skinny and wearing speedos.
Historically Santa entered homes through chimneys. Not many of those around. Soon Santa will be fazed out.
BTW, we do have a skinny black gay santa. 1600...
