UK charity apologises to 'upset' children for ad showing Santa Clause hospitalised with Covid-19

An NHS charity advert depicting Santa Clause recovering from Covid-19 in hospital has come under criticism in the UK for upsetting young children. NHS Charities Together issued a statement saying:‘We worked closely with the team behind the ad to make sure it was produced responsibly and it was cleared for use by the relevant regulatory authority. ‘However, we are sorry to the parents of any young children who have been upset by watching the ad and to the young children themselves, they were not the intended audience for it.’
