The incident occurred during the Peezy’s Sweetie’s Day Bash Awards at Michigan High School, although it was previously scheduled to be held at a stadium in Pontiac, Michigan.

“I don’t think she was a stripper. It was one of her dancers who was inappropriately dressed, which is a pity,” Hines said. “I didn’t know anyone would come in their underwear to dance with him.”
The stripper was dancing to the lyrics of “twerk that pu – y baby” and suggestively dancing the bare-breasted man.
The school was not sponsored by the event, and there were no students present at the event.
Monique Beals, director of the Mount Clemens Community Schools, said the organization is prohibited from using its facilities in the future, and that the district will review how activities take place.
“There were no prior issues of inappropriateness when this organization hired from our area in the past. There was no reason to believe that the activities that took place on October 15, 2022 would take place in our gym,” Beals said.
“The Mount Clemens Community Schools Board of Education and Management is deeply shocked, disappointed and disgusted by the inappropriate events that have occurred,” Beals added.
Hines apologized for the incident and said, “We are very sorry, but we will continue to be a platform for up-and-coming artists.”

Each of us, no matter where we live or who we are, want the same things for our children: a world-class education that excels 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 offers an appropriate learning environment that puts the interest of students and parents first at all times,” Foster said.
