Shantel Smith is a woman that messaged Rapture Nightclub in Perth, Australia to tell them that she believes something had been slipped into her drink, and she urged the establishment to increase its security.
However, the nightclub has since come under fire for their horrendously poor response.
She wrote that she believes her drink was actually spiked on Saturday. She noted that she only had 2 or 3 drinks before she came, so she definitely wasn’t drunk, bought just 1 drink from the bar and was then unconscious for the next 2.5 hours, experiencing common symptoms of a date drug.
Smith also claimed that the same thing had happened to two other people she knew on previous occasions.
This is the message she sent the club:
However, screenshots of the nightclub’s response have gone viral since, and for all the wrong reasons.
The club’s owner, Neil Scott, questioned the truth behind Smith’s claims, and he also asked if she felt was “worth” being spiked.
Yes, you read that right.
Check out the message the club sent her:
The club owner spoke on ABC Radio Perth on Monday, admitting that he could have worded his reply differently. However, he remained adamant that the customer’s drink had not been spiked, and he said that “there was no chance that she had her drink spiked, it was just an 18-year-old girl being silly”.
He said that she stood outside the nightclub for another 8 minutes and danced with her friends, enjoying herself, before she walked off.
Even though, someone has since set up a petition calling for the night club to be shut down.
The petition already has 14,000 of the required 15,000 signatures, and it asks for the club to be closed down and turned into either a shelter for the homeless or a Women’s refuge.
