A Universal Orlando actor who worked as the movie character “Gru” from “Despicable Me” has been fired after he made the “OK” hand gesture during a photo with a biracial girl.

The gesture was added to the Anti-Defamation League’s database of hate symbols last week.

Universal spokesman Tom Scroder confirmed to the The Associated Press on Wednesday that the unidentified actor was no longer working for the company, calling the action unacceptable.
