An actor dressed as Gru, the character from the animated movie Despicable Me who worked at Universal Studios Park in Orlando, Florida, made a sign of white supremacy by posing for a photo alongside two biracial children. The actor has been fired after the incident. The man signaled "OK" backwards with his fingers on the girl's shoulder, a racist sign.

The children's mother, Tiffiney Zinger, is black, and the children's father, Richard Zinger, is white. The couple noticed the offensive sign upon returning from their vacation and looking at the family photos. The sign is a symbol of hatred and racial discrimination. "We just wanted to take them to see the minions, to do something special for our family, and this person ruined that special feeling of happiness," the mother told USA Today.

The mother added that the incident has caused emotional stress in the family. A spokesman for Universal Orlando Resort assured USA Today that the actor no longer works in the park. "We never want our visitors to experience what this family experienced," said the spokesperson. “This is unacceptable and we are very sorry. We are taking the necessary steps to ensure that something like this does not happen again.”
