BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- On Thursday night, there was a change in Santas at the Bangor Mall as the man who had been Santa's Helper for two years was fired and immediately replaced.
Joe Brooks was fired Thursday night after receiving a call from Noerr, the Colorado-based company that contracted him to the Bangor Mall.
Noerr managers told him the firing came after using innappropriate language- conduct that they told him he was warned about weeks ago.
Brooks recalled a complaint about a grimmacing face he made in a picture that surfaced on Facebook a few weeks ago, an incident that corporate did speak to him about.
The only other negative incident he could remember, was using the word 'damn' in a conversation with a family friend that was overheard by co-worker.
