Who said retirees can’t have a little fun? Well, apparently their children did.
A Long Island retirement home found itself in hot water after being accused of treating its patients to a knockoff Magic Mike striptease. Yep, that’s right. Instead of playing bingo, these old folks were taking in the sights of some bulging biceps and rock-hard washboard abs.
All parties involved would’ve gotten away with it if it weren’t for the son of one resident who discovered a photo of his mother, 86-year-old Bernice Youngblood, stuffing a dollar into the waistband of a male performer. The son was especially angry that her mother was using money from her commissary to tip the dancers.
The image also showed other residents both confused and delighted at the sight of the grinding, muscular men.
Youngblood’s family tried to confront the home for its odd treatment of their residents but were soundly ignored. When the upset son tried to confront a nurse with a photo of the incident the nurse lunged at him trying to steal the evidence. That’s when the legal system got involved.
“Plaintiff Bernice Youngblood was placed in apprehension of imminent, offensive, physical harm, as she was confused and bewildered as to why a muscular, almost nude man, was approaching her and placing his body and limbs, over [her],” the suit states.
A nurse later told another of the victim’s sons that the strip show was an “entertainment event” for the patients and was done in “good faith,” according to the suit.
“Bernice Youngblood has lived 85 years as a traditional Baptist, hard-working, lady. And now she has been defiled,” the family’s attorney said.
I don’t know, looked like Bernice was having a good time to me.
