Museum defends allowing man in lingerie to play with Lego at kids event

A museum has controversially defended their decision to allow a man in women's lingerie to play with Lego next to children as one visitor slammed it as "disgusting".

Photos emerged of a man wearing revealing fishnet stockings, pink boots and women's underwear surrounded by children at a "Nights at the Museum" event back in April.

The Australian Museum situated in Sydney has spoken out in defence stating they were offering a "safe place where everyone feels welcome", news.com.au reported.

“You let a male in fetish gear play in the kids Lego pit during the school holidays,” the woman wrote on Twitter with the accompanying image.

“When I spoke to security they said they could do nothing and pointed me to the organiser. He’s sitting there with his full package out. Disgusting!”

The woman’s account appears to have since been deleted.

Others chimed in on social media, with one user stating: "Man in fetish clothes wants to play with children and the museum are too chicken to remove him.

"I’m shocked that the parents didn’t pick him up by the hair and kick him into next week. He was poking the hornet’s nest."

Another wrote: “Back in the day I worked on an adventure playground, and this herbert would have been ejected from it in double quick time.”

The Australian Museum has since released a statement claiming that the "safety of our visitors and staff is out top priority".

They added: "The images shared by the ‘Sydney Radfem’ Twitter account on Tuesday 3 May 2022 were taken nearly three weeks earlier at approximately 8pm during a Nights at the Museum event held on Thursday 14 April 2022.

“The teams investigated and confirmed that the individuals in fancy dress were keeping to themselves and had not interacted with anyone else in the area that was open to all.

"The Australian Museum teams confirmed this with ‘Sydney Radfem’, who stayed until the end of the evening with her own child."

The museum stated they would now be making the brick play pit a "children's only area".
