Taiwanese retirement home apologizes for hiring stripper to entertain disabled veterans

A group of wheelchair veterans received more than mooncakes for the Mid-Autumn Festival after a nursing home in Taiwan hired the services of a lingerie-clad stripper to celebrate the Chinese festival.

The Taoyuan Veterans Home, a state-run facility for military veterinarians, issued an apology for hiring the exotic dancer to perform for the elderly.

Viral footage filmed by a participant shows one of the vets receiving a handful of boobs as the stripper ‘twerks’ on his wheelchair.

The stripper spent 15 minutes dancing for retired army personnel, who are at the facility with dementia and other disabilities, Malay Mail reported.
