The New York Post reports that a nursing home in Taiwan had some ‘splaining to do after booking some unconventional entertainment for their Mid-Autumn Festival party. The Mid-Autumn Festival, aka the Moon Festival or Mooncake Festival, is an important Chinese holiday that celebrates the season’s rice and wheat harvests. Sadly, the last two Mid-Autumn Festival parties at the Taoyuan Veterans Home have been cancelled due to COVID. This year, staff wanted to make it up to their residents by doing something extra special. So they hired a stripper! That’ll lift their spirits (and more, if they timed their Viagra right)!
Somebody at the party filmed the stripper’s performance. The video shows the young woman opening and closing her legs on the floor, thrusting her boobs in an elderly resident’s face, and then placing his hands on ’em. The man is wearing a mask (everybody is, including the stripper), so you can’t make out his expression. But, based on body language, the wheelchair-bound veteran seems to be enjoying himself! So do many of the other residents, who clap along to the music. Here’s the clip, which went viral:
Obviously, the senior care facility was hit with some backlash, and they released a statement apologizing for this unorthodox decision:
“The intention of the event was to entertain residents and make them happy. We are very sorry for the offense that was caused.”
A spokesman for the nursing home added that they wanted to do something extra-fun because of the last two parties being cancelled. However, they admitted that the dancer’s moves were “too enthusiastic and fiery,” and, in the future, they’ll be “more cautious.” But the spokesman makes it clear, residents also had the option to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival by playing Bingo or doing karaoke in an adjoining nursing hall. And, let’s be real, a particularly loud “BINGO!” can trigger a heart attack just as easily as a sexy striptease.
