A video showing a stripper dancing at an 8-year-old boy’s birthday party has caused outrage on social media (video below).
The video surfaced on Instagram sometime in March, the Daily Star reported. It shows a stripper in pink underwear dancing in front of the birthday boy while he smacks her backside.
Other children are seen in the video, cheering the birthday boy on while throwing dollar bills at the stripper.
Police in Tampa, Florida, were made aware of the video after several social media users reported it. A police spokesperson told the New York Post that authorities couldn’t take action because nothing in the footage shows conclusive evidence of where the party took place.
Meanwhile, representatives for the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Department say they were not aware of the video.
According to online sources, the boy’s mother hired the stripper to dance for his eighth birthday party. Several social media users accused the mother of child abuse.
“The mother should be put in jail and the stripper should be fined,” wrote one commenter. “Disgusting.”
