Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said he was considering sending Child Protective Services against people exposing children to drag shows.
DeSantis was asked about proposed legislation about children at drag shows during a media briefing on Wednesday.
“We have child protective statutes on the books. We have laws against child endangerment,” said DeSantis, who added that his staff was looking at the law.
He went on to reference “disturbing” videos from a drag show performance at a bar in Dallas, Texas, that showed children shoving dollar bills into the underwear of drag performers.
“Injecting these agendas into it is wrong, and that’s why we did the Parent’s Rights and Education bill,” he added.
Videos and images from the drag show event in Dallas outraged many on social media. Others on the left defended the incident and accused critics of bigotry and prejudice against alternate lifestyles.
