New Jersey Mother Alleges Racial Discrimination by Mascot at Chuck E. Cheese

A family is speaking out after they say a character at Chuck E. Cheese in New Jersey ignored their 2-year-old and the apology they received fell short.

“In the video there were a bunch of Caucasian children who were there on stage that received a high five,” mother Natyana Muhammad said. “My Black child was the one being ignored.”

There are two videos that appear to show Chuck E. Cheese ignoring Safa Muhammad. The 2-year-old was invited to a birthday party at the Chuck E. Cheese on Route 23 on Saturday.

One video shows the character give three high-fives to other kids, but leaves Muhammad hanging.

“When she turned around she was excited to see him, she saw that he was giving all the other kids high fives,” Muhammad said. “She put her hand out. It was her turn. He just put his hand in and down acting like he didn’t see her.”
