Cardi B. Reveals How Serious The Beef Between Strippers And Bottle Service Girls Is

It has led to a city-wide stripper strike in NYC.

Published October 26, 2017

There’s been a war brewing in the concrete jungle between dancers and bartenders at New York City strip clubs and this week s**t hit the fan when strippers started striking. #NYCStripperStrike is calling out the bartenders that they work alongside for stealing their money. With the explosion of social media, promoters are now hiring bottle girls who are somewhat Insta-famous, giving them “uniforms” that could pass for a strippers’ and letting them twerk behind the bar. You can see how this can be quite confusing for the customers who are passing them dollars instead of the dancers. Plus, strippers are calling out the bottle girls for literally swiping the money that does get tossed on stage. Well, strippers have had enough and refuse to shake it until there’s a change.

The bottle girls aren’t the only issue, either. Strippers are furious over colorism claims that say dark skinned dancers are getting pushed aside for Latina or more “exotic” looking dancers. Allegedly, club managers are going as far as keeping Black strippers out of VIP or not letting them hit the stage on celebrity-hosted nights.

So far, a settlement hasn’t been reached, but the internet has a suggestion as to who should squash the beef once and for all — Cardi B

Cardi has never been shy about her stripper past and even though she’s making money moves now, she took to Instagram recently in support of the entertainers.

It’s annoying

DJ Kay Slay’s thoughts seemd to differ when it came to the strippers vs. bottle girls beef. In a lengthy Instagram post, he says it’s a “new day” and isn’t mad at the bartenders’ hustle but takes issue with the racism. “What I do understand and acknowledge is that there is RACISM against black women in most of these NY strip clubs! It has been going on for a while now it didn't just start? At some of my events when it's celebrities in the VIP I have to grab the black women by their hands and pull them into VIP,” he writes.

I see the ladies beefing in NY Now, Dancers vs the Bartenders. Smh... We all have to just face the fact that it's a new day, It was a time where bartenders were only allowed to serve drinks and didn't wear the same attire as the dancers. The ladies did not change that rule the clubs did, And social media made it where some promoters ( not all ) will use popular ladies who never bartended in their life, to bartend at their events an most of all use their IG celebrity to make their fans come out on their nights! New Day! Customers like new shit everything changes , so now it's a matter of dancers and bartenders having to get their fans to come spend money on them in order to eat, fair is fair I get that also. But here is the Fukery, What I do understand and acknowledge is that there is RACISM against black woman in most of these NY strip clubs! It has been going on for a while now it didn't just start? At some of my events when it's celebrities in the VIP I have to grab the black women by their hands and pull them into VIP. My last event this security clown would not let a black dancer in VIP, I told him it's my event let her up there , this fool told me no, I told him you getting paid tonight because of me let her up, he still shook his head, Now we was about to get on his skull , but I wasn't about to fuk up my own event, so I had to get a manager to check his dumb ass, then I removed his stupid ass from his post!! So if that's the argument that's being pushed as far as racism, then I have to agree, They don't let black women on stage when it's big money in the building or VIP, Unless you have built a name for yourself, So knowing this everyone needs to step their game up a notch an get it right!! Or try another state because this is how they playing, but it shouldn't be the ladies beefing with each other because it's not the ladies who set the rules!! But as far as telling women because they bartend they not supposed to eat, it's a new day , not saying it's the way that its supposed to be, but times change an ppl can do what they want with their club.. Personally I feel they should drop both titles "Strippers and Bartenders" because it's all the same shit now!
