An Arizona strip club manager split TikTok after revealing she was taking her toddler to work with her.
Nini Suárez (@whatsuarez) climbed onto the platform with a montage of clips of her son at the strip club. “When people take offense that your son is a strip club babe, but loves him and is loved,” she titled one of her viral TikToks, which recorded a staggering 1.1 million views.

Understandably, the clip caused quite a bit of division after hundreds of people flocked to the comments to express their opinions.
Most of the TikTokers colleagues reassured and supported the mom. “All I see is a mom doing whatever it takes to take care of her baby – and all I have is respect,” one commented. while another told the strip club manager that she is “a good mom and won’t let anyone tell you otherwise”.
Another suggested that her son will grow up to “respect women”.
“He will learn to respect women and know that they are not objects but real people,” they said. “You have to do what you have to do and you make a great mom.”
While one of them joked, “Please tell me he’s got a shirt that says ‘security’.”
Others, however, were not so impressed. “Yeah, maybe don’t do that,” one commented, “I was one of those kids now I hate my parents for that, so hmmmmmm.”
Another wrote, “All I can think of are germs in places like this.” “
Some have expressed concerns about the safety of toddlers around alcohol drinkers, prompting Nini to post a follow-up video to respond to their comments.
“He is not on the floor when serving alcohol,” she said, “he is not allowed to enter the club until all the patrons have left and no alcohol is drawn. ”
Nini explained that her son is never at the club all night and that “he has people watching him at all times.”
“One thing I also want to touch on is: strippers are mothers,” she said. “And they love as much as they love their own children.”
Although Nini has confirmed that she often takes her son to work, she said the division clip was actually shot on her day off when she went to the club to catch up with a friend.
“But what does it matter, doesn’t it?” she added.
