Family Sues Legoland For Alleged Racial Discrimination In 2022

In a newly filed lawsuit, they seek $1 million in damages after the attorney responsible for representing both parties, Darnell Crosland, shares that the company ignored their initial request for a meeting to discuss what happened and a full refund for their time at the park.

Additionally, Crosland conducted his own research to determine if Legoland had a history of ignoring Black and other minority children and only dancing and interacting with white kids visiting the park.

“We’ve collected data upon data of different incidents that I’ve paid for from my office to see if this is real, and it continues to happen,” he shared. 

Ramsay also claims that no one from the Legoland team has reached out to issue an apology. “Here we are two years later, and nothing has been done to my knowledge,” she said. 

Coincidentally, a similar incident happened during the same year at Sesame Street Place. The company was under scrutiny after a clip from a parade showed characters ignoring two small Black girls as they waved and cheered them on from the sidelines.

In the following weeks, as other people came forward with claims of racial discrimination and an outpour of disdain across social media, the theme park issued an apology. It enforced a policy requiring all employees and personnel to participate in mandatory diversity, equity, and inclusion training.

At this time, Legoland issued a written statement to News 8 regarding the allegations.

“We are committed to fostering an open, inclusive, and safe environment where all our guests feel valued,” said a company representative. “As this matter is currently under litigation, we are unable to provide further details and will respect the legal process.”
