VIDEO: DeSantis Cracks Down on Drag Show for Kids

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis

( – The administration of Florida’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis has moved against a bar in Miami offering “sexually explicit” shows with drag queens to little children.

The Florida state government’s Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) has filed a complaint against the R House bar, which can result in it losing its liquor license, The Daily Wire reported.

The venue recently scandalized the American public after videos from its drag shows leaked on social media showed a drag queen walking hand-in-hand with a young girl aged 3 or 4.

The drag queen is dressed in nothing but a thong with hanging dollar bills and fully exposed fake female breasts.

“They actually … had a children’s menu on their food services, and you think to yourself, you know, give me a break what’s going on?” Gov. DeSantis commented.

“[DBPR investigators] looked under Florida law and were able to initiate this procedure that would take away the liquor license for that,” he explained, noting that the investigators identified the performances at the R House bar as “sexually explicit drag shows.”

The venue reacted to the probe and the complaint by confirming it and explaining that it is working with the DBPR “to rectify the situation.” It is required to respond to the state government complaint within 21 days.

“We are hopeful that Gov. DeSantis, a vociferous supporter, and champion of Florida’s hospitality industry and small businesses, will see this as what it is, a misunderstanding, and that the matter will be resolved positively and promptly,” the management of the R House bar in Miami told The New York Post.

“I’m sensitive to this, I’ve got a five-, a four-, and a two-year-old, my wife and I back home, and we get our money’s worth out of that. Being a parent is the most important thing we do,” DeSantis told reporters at a press conference after announcing the complaint.

“I think parents, particularly this time in society’s history, should be able to have their kids go to kindergarten, watch cartoons, just be kids, without having some agenda shoved down their throats all the time. And that’s what we’re fighting for,” the governor concluded.

His wife, Florida’s First Lady, Casey DeSantis, also weighed in on the issue with a post on Twitter.

“Speaking on behalf of A LOT of moms across the state, we do not want our children exposed to inappropriate sexualized content. Full stop,” she declared.
