Sam Panda, an acrobat who went viral a few years ago when she broke her neck during a performance in Bali when her rig malfunctioned, made waves this time when she wore a thong on a South Carolina beach — where it is illegal.
The well-known aerialist, who is originally from Pittsburgh, complained that “some Karen” called the cops on her because she wore the skimpy bikini in Myrtle Beach.
Police said they were initially called for a report of two women who were wearing thongs and a see-through top — and were “dancing and soliciting videos on the beach,” WTNH reported. The cops spoke with the women to advise them of the ordinance.
“One of the women attempted to walk away from officers and was detained,” police said, according to the outlet.
After being shown the ordinance, Panda complied and was allowed to leave the beach without further incident. But she vented on Facebook about the incident.
“If you are a woman, and you decide to call the police on other women for their bodies ON A BEACH, IN FRONT OF YOUR TEENAGE DAUGHTER…,” she wrote.
Both Horry County and Myrtle Beach governments ban the use of thongs under an ordinance about indecent exposure, WTNH reported. Offenders are typically given a warning for the first offense.H/T to the Misanthropic Humanitarian at Ace's Saturday Overnight Open Thread (8/8/20).
