Bare Fax Gentleman’s Club, the strip bar currently being managed by disgraced Senator Patrick Brazeau, has seen a number of dancers quit recently.
They say they are just too embarrassed to be working at the same place as Patrick Brazeau.
“I had to quit because my dad found out that I’ve been stripping at a club managed by Patrick Brazeau, and I just can’t bare the way he won’t make eye contact with me anymore” says Krystal, a dancer who has worked at the club for the past several years.
She is one of six dancers who have left the club in recent weeks. “It might have been okay if I could have convinced my dad that Brazeau just manages the club but doesn’t actually work there, but he reads the papers. He knows Brazeau spends a lot of time inside the club with us.”
Destiny, who started at the club in October 2013 agrees.
“I had to quit because every time I was up on stage taking my clothes off, I just kept thinking to myself, ‘So it has come to this — working in a place along side Patrick Brazeau. I’ve really hit rock bottom.”
Other dancers at the strip club say they want to stop at the club, but they just can’t afford to quit.
“Just to be clear, there’s no way I’d be working in a club with Patrick Brazeau if I didn’t have six kids to feed,” says Diamond, who has been working at the club since the late 90′s.
“Every night, I think about my kids, close my eyes, strip to Bon Jovi’s “Bad Medicine” and hope that Patrick Brazeau isn’t watching me.”
