Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” aired on TV Tuesday night, causing the name of the Christmas classic to trend on Twitter.

And it wasn’t all warm and fuzzy childhood memories.

As time goes on, many viewers find the tale isn’t a charming story of a little reindeer so much as Santa Claus being an exploitative bully, as well as some less-than-jolly work conditions at the North Pole.

Here’s some of the reaction:

Now showing on @CBS – The story of a xenophobic elf who bullies a reindeer and a transient prospector who commits attempted murder against a recently-tortured (had its teeth removed by an unlicensed dentist) creature. 

Someone needed to remove  from his abusive father and don’t get me started on prejudiced Santa

watching “Rudolph” on cbs. They should have called it “everyone’s an asshole, including santa.”   

Watching  & it still makes me as happy as it did when I was little. Except I now see Santa was a jerk didn’t see it as a child.

: “Where are my parents?”

Santa: “They’ve been missing for months, I’ve made no effort to find them, and here’s a list of ways that their disappearance inconveniences me.”

So wait, Santa not only hates rudolph’s nose but he blames his father? He’s a real piece of work 

Comet shouldn’t be in coaching if he’s going to turn his back on the most talented reindeer. This is a results business. 

 should have gone full speed and then cut the reins behind him and let that fat bastard Santa and those hateful reindeer learn what struggle is like

Yearly reminder that  the Red Nosed Reindeer is a parable on racism & homophobia w/ Santa as a bigoted exploitative prick.

“The real moral of Rudolph’s story is that some people won’t like you until you have something they want or need” 

This is a terrible story for kids. Don’t be different because we’ll pick on you & ostracize you. Until we need you, then you’re okay. 

Wait, so that one reindeer can have blonde hair, but they’re tripping on Rudolph’s nose?  

Just once I’d like for Rudolph to answer, “Kiss my furry ass, fat-boy. Pull your own damn sleigh.”

Moral: Most people are shallow jerks until they need something & nobody likes dentists
