Twitter users on Thursday reacted negatively to viral videos and photos showing a young child on a stripper pole at a recent North Carolina gay pride event.
“At a Pride event in Charlotte, NC, there was a stripper pole where kids could try pole dancing,” according to conservative news account LibsofTikTok posted on Thursday.
In one of the photos, a scantily clad woman is seen holding on to a stripper pole, with a young boy in her arms, who is also holding onto the pole.
The footage appears to have been taken at the Charlotte Pride Festival & Parade, which took place on August 20th and 21st.
Many conservatives on social media have expressed outrage at the video, including Republican politician Matt Mackowiak, who called it “child abuse.”
“Straight to jail,” tweeted Matt Rinaldi, leader of the Texas Republican Party.
“America has a serious problem,” tweeted journalist Tayler Hansen.
Charlotte Pride Festival organizers did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News Digital.
A similar situation happened recently in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, when a gay pride event went viral over photos of a young child being taught how to use a stripper pole.
“Central PA Pride had put up a pole of support with a great instructor,” the post’s caption read. “My child is a natural!”
Standing alongside the stripper pole and instructor actions, the festival told Fox News Digital that the exhibition was “nothing more than a vehicle for fun and exercise.”
