A man in North Pole, Alaska legally goes by the name Santa Claus … and he’s well known on Facebook.
But his Facebook recently got suspended … oddly enough, on Christmas Day.
Facebook cut off Claus’ account, demanding proof of identity.
Claus is a North Pole city councilman who uses his Facebook to interact with people.
The page has more than 300,000 likes.
The man says he wasn’t given a reason why his page was blocked; in fact, he thought Facebook believed the account was fake.
Facebook has apologized for suspending the man’s account, saying it happened by mistake.
The man has proved his legal identity to Facebook.
He says he’s the only Santa Claus on Facebook from the city.
