Security became involved after antisemitic flyers were distributed on parked cars at Knott’s Berry Farm on Sunday.
“I came out to my car this afternoon and found an antisemitic flyer placed on my windshield complete with a tiny swastika printed in the corner,” Reddit user u/breakfast4Grumby recalled. “I called Knott’s customer service immediately and was told they would send security into the parking lot.”
Knott’s Berry Farm security reportedly requested that any Guests who notice similar behavior call them immediately. It’s unknown if the Guests distributing the flyers were apprehended.
Another Guest present that day allegedly saw a man with a Nazi tattoo “in the festival buffet building.”
Unfortunately, this is not an isolated incident. Last week, a Guest wearing a shirt advertising a white supremacist band was spotted at Disneyland Resort.
Last October, antisemitic flyers accusing The Walt Disney Company of grooming were distributed in mailboxes throughout Southern California. It followed a disturbing rise in public antisemitism after Kanye West (Ye) tweeted that he was going “death con 3 on Jewish people.”
This isn’t the first controversy to hit Southern California Theme Park this season. Knott’s introduced a chaperone policy late last year after multiple fights and violent incidents forced the Park to close early. A reported rise in Theme Park violence has made many Guests afraid to visit Knott’s and similar destinations nationwide.
