NEW YORK - The Boston Blazers lacrosse team has caused fury among their fans after scantily clad dancers performed a lap dance on their mascot during halftime.
The dancers at Boston’s TD Garden were competing to give Scorch, the team’s mascot, the best lap dance, while the not-so-family-friendly rap song ‘Low’ blasted through the stadium.
The racy stunt was caught on YouTube and outraged many fans - especially those who took their young kids to see what was supposed to be an-all ages lacrosse game.
The next day the team’s President and GM Doug Reffue posted a statement apologizing for the sexy show on the team’s Facebook page.The Boston Blazers halftime act for Saturday’s game was clearly not executed according to plan. We are extremely disappointed with elements of the halftime show,” the New York Daily News quoted him as writing.
“We had intended to provide an entertaining and fun halftime environment for our fans and that is not what transpired.
“The Boston Blazers organization values our fans and have taken their feedback very seriously,” he added. (ANI)
