    Chiefs in hot water over stripper

    2016-08-04 14:20

    Cape Town - Two-time Super Rugby champions the Chiefs have landed themselves in hot water after hiring a stripper for their post-season celebrations.

    In an interview with the Radio NZ website, the stripper - who only wants to be known as Scarlette - said the players were drunk, swore at her and touched her inappropriately.

    She said she felt as if she could not stop her performance in the bar at a Waikato hot pool.

    "I made it very clear that I didn't want to be touched, even though I had a smile on my face it doesn't affect the words coming out of your mouth - that was just me maintaining my professionalism, trying to get out of there safely."

    She said the job was supposed to include one hour waitressing and then a strip performance.

    She said there were no staff present during the strip from either Chiefs management or the hot pools, and afterwards she was asked to do the waitressing and she said she could stay if they settled down.

    "Which they didn't. Things escalated. Basically, they wanted me to be a whore, which I wasn't there to be. And when I went to collect payment they short-changed me and basically just made it very hostile and I had to leave immediately, because I was quite upset."

    Chiefs CEO Andrew Flexman expressed his disappointment that some players hired a stripper, saying management would have prevented it if they had known.

    Earlier, Sport24 reported that Chiefs lock Michael Allardice had apologised for making a homophobic slur at the same party.

    According to the Stuff.co.nz website, Waikato man Brendan Barraclough, who was at the hot pools with two friends, heard Allardice yell, "Here come the gays, here come the gays", followed by another comment.

    Allardice owned up , saying the comments were unjustifiable, but were directed at two team mates who were dressed up and just walked into the premises.
