Outrage After Former NFL Player Brings Stripper To Michigan High School Event

A former NFL player is coming under fire after his organization brought a stripper to a staged event at a Detroit-area high school.

Quentin Hines, former running back for the New England Patriots and CEO of minor league soccer organization Rivals Professional Football League, said the league’s recruiting service staged an event at Mount Clemens High School, where a scantily clad woman was seen dancing, according to FOX 2.

The incident occurred during the Michigan High School Football League’s Peezy’s Sweetie’s Day Bash, which was previously scheduled to take place at a stadium in Pontiac, Michigan.

Hines said the woman was not a stripper but was “underclothed” and was seen in a Facebook live video of the event dancing scantily clad in front of a shirtless man.

“I don’t think she was a stripper. She was one of his dancers who was poorly dressed, and it’s unfortunate,” Hines said. “I did not know that someone so naked would come to dance with him.”

The incident took place at Mount Clemens High School.
Hines said the incident occurred at a Rivals Professional Football League recruiting event.

The stripper was dancing to lyrics containing “twerk that pu-y baby” and suggestively dancing on the shirtless man.

The event was not sponsored by the school and there were no students present at the event.

Mount Clemens Community Schools Superintendent Monique Beels said the organization is prohibited from using its facilities in the future and the district will review how activities were carried out.

“There have been no prior issues of inappropriateness when this organization leased to our district in the past. There was no reason to believe that the activities that took place at the event on October 15, 2022 would take place in our gym,” Beels said.

“The Mount Clemens Community Schools Board of Education and Administration is deeply shocked, disappointed and disgusted by the inappropriate events that took place,” added Beels.

Initially, the event was supposed to take place in a stadium.

Hines apologized for the incident, saying, “We’re very sorry, but we will continue to be a platform for emerging artists.”

A Facebook page for the school district states that the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the incident.

“If anyone has video of the event held in our gym on Saturday night, please forward it to the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office as an investigation is currently underway,” the district said in a Facebook post.

State Superintendent Tricia Foster also responded to the incident in a letter to Beels, stating that people must be held accountable.

“I am writing to express our strong disapproval of the events that occurred over the weekend at Mount Clemens High School. All of us, regardless of where we live or who we are, want the same thing for our children: a world-class education to excel in life and work. Our schools serve as the foundation for these goals and pillars of our communities, so it is important that each district present an appropriate learning environment that puts the interests of students and parents first at all times,” Foster said.

She said the district should further investigate the incident.

“We ask the school district to conduct an immediate review to determine how such a gross oversight or error in judgment was allowed to occur. In addition, we ask that you take steps to hold the right people accountable for the events that have unfolded. Lastly, we encourage the school district to put policies, procedures and safeguards in place to ensure this never happens again,” Foster said.
