Bronx rapper Cardi B shed light on a crime wave involving stripper tag teams and unsuspecting male strip club patrons with deep pockets.
In an old video that surfaced on social media last week, the mom-of-one bragged about drugging and robbing her strip club customers during her stripper days.
After the backlash on social media, Cardi, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, half-apologized and explained that she did what she had to do to survive.
Comedian Michael Blackson shared a social media post about a "good friend" who was victimized by two strippers at a local club.
He explained that the friend was drugged and "left for dead" while the women robbed him blind. Blackson denied the "friend" was him.
He also had a word of advice for women like Cardi B who brag about their robbery exploits on social media.
Drunk male customers are easy prey for criminal-minded strippers who follow them to hotel rooms under the pretense of providing intimate services. Inside the rooms, the women drug then rob the men of their cash and valuables.
The men wake up the next morning to find their wallets, watches, jewelry - and sometimes their cars - gone. The women also steal their pants and boxer shorts so the men can't pursue them out of the hotel.
The crimes are underreported because the victims are politicians and businessmen with wives and children at home.
Strip clubs have been forced out of existence in New York City, Miami and Atlanta after well-to-do victims contacted politicians to pull the club's liquor license after they were victimized by strippers who skipped town.
Police are advising men to be aware of their surroundings after leaving a strip club. Males should travel in groups if they plan to visit a strip club. And they should never accept a drink from a woman in a bar.
