However, the video received a lot of backlash after it was circulated on social media websites. “This is stupid and ridiculous. How about treating them well and with dignity, respect and honour,”one user wrote. The management at the aged care facility apologised after being slammed online for organising the show.
In a statement, they said: “The intention of the event was to entertain residents and make them happy. We are very sorry for the offense that was caused”. A nursing home spokesman added that the stripper’s actions were ‘too enthusiastic and fiery,’ adding that personnel would be ‘more cautious’ when planning events in the future.
While many slammed the incident, a lot of users saw no problem with the show. A user defended it and said, “Why appologize? It was all in fun. Probably the most fun the old men have had in centuries. It might even have made them feel like living. Anyone complaining is just jealous it wasn’t them.” Another wrote, “Ain’t nothing wrong with this! They don’t need to apologize. They should’ve hired more strippers. Instead of one.”
