An explicit viral video of a raunchy Texas drag queen show performed in front of a little girl sparked a backlash on social media – and has promised state lawmakers on legislative action.
The video filmed by BlazeTV host Sara Gonzalez shows a drag queen lifting her skirt and spinning while lip-synching the lyrics to Lady’s song “P—y” while a confused child looks on from one of the nearby tables.
“My p—y good / p—y sweet /p—y good enough to eat,” the lyrics read as the drag queen circles.
The young girl sits in an alcove at the Garden of Eden brunch show at Ebb & Flow restaurant in Plano and watches the action as several adult women in her group look on blankly.
Gonzalez said on Twitter that she attended the show, calling it “an all-ages drag brunch.”
It wasn’t immediately clear if the party with the kid bought tickets to the drag brunch. Social media listings for the event warned against “strong language and suggestive dialogue” that “may not be appropriate for all ages”.
The post was retweeted more than 2,400 times as of Tuesday afternoon, prompting Republican lawmakers to pass legislation.
“Disgusting and totally inappropriate for any child” State Assemblyman Bryan Slaton wrote on Twitter.
“A drag show is no place for a kid. I’m committed to protecting children from these sick displays,” he continued.
“We’ll get it done when the #txlege [Texas Legislature] Returning in January.”
Texas House Representative Jeff Leach said it was “unreal for this to happen in our state.”
“And if I have anything to say about it, it will shortly be unlawful. #txlege,” he wrote.
One commenter flicked back: “I see ONE CHILD. Call CPS” with a shrug emoji.
Another asked if that meant banning drag shows, arresting parents, or searching homes of people throwing drag show parties.
Critics also flooded the restaurant’s Yelp page with negative comments after the video went viral.
one reviewer wrote. “The food is pretty good. The service pretty average. They put on sexually explicit drag shows in front of children. This is not okay and I will not return.”
The Post has reached out to show organizers and the restaurant for comment.
Instagram videos from two performances filmed at the restaurant on Saturday show performances that include lap dances and cash being thrown at the performer.
The invite also includes a disclaimer and a “viewer discretion” warning.
“This is a paid event at a private facility,” the post reads.
“We believe it is the prerogative of parents/guardians to make decisions about the well-being of their children.
“If you wouldn’t allow your kids to see an R rated movie or TV-MA programs, this isn’t the right event for them. Minors must be accompanied by a parent/legal guardian.”
