WEST BABYLON , N.Y., April 8 (UPI) -- A Long Island nursing home is likely going to be sued after allegedly hiring a male stripper to entertain its elderly residents during a party in the recreational room.

During a visit to the East Neck Nursing Center in West Babylon, the son of 85-year-old Bernice Youngblood discovered a photo that appears to show the woman slipping money into a male stripper's briefs.

“Plaintiff Bernice Youngblood was placed in apprehension of imminent, offensive, physical harm, as she was confused and bewildered as to why a muscular, almost nude man, was approaching her and placing his body and limbs, over [her],” according to the suit.

The suit alleges that when the son, Franklin Youngblood, confronted a staff member about the photo, “the staffer lunged at him and tried to snatch the picture away.”

“Bernice Youngblood has lived 85 years as a traditional Baptist, hard-working, lady…And now she has been defiled,” attorney John Ray told the New York Post.

According to the lawsuit, the striptease was done “for the perverse pleasure and enjoyment of the Defendant’s staff.”
