A Santa Claus left a little boy in tears after he scolded him for asking for a toy gun for Christmas.

“No, no guns,” he said in a video posted Monday after the boy said he wanted a gun. The boy’s mother then clarified the request, saying, “A Nerf gun.”

“Nope, not even a Nerf gun,” Santa replied in the video, which has been viewed more than 200,000 times. “Nope. If your dad wants to get it for you, that’s fine, but I can’t bring it to you.”

He continued: “What else would you like? There’s lots of other toys. There’s Legos, there’s bicycles, there’s cars and trucks. What do you think?”

The boy then began to cry as his mother walked over to console him.

Comments on the video were generally critical, with Twitter users condemning the Santa and looking for more information on the boy so they could send him a toy gun.

“If you have a political itch, don't scratch it by taking it out on children,” RedState’s Brandon Morse tweeted.

“This literally made me cry. Good job, ‘Santa’, you just broke a little kid's heart......shame on you,” one person wrote.

“Dude had one job & he couldn't help himself,” another wrote.
