A popular restaurant located in Wynwood went viral after videos surfaced on social media of children attending their drag brunches.

State officials said the videos showed nearly nude dancers and in one case holding hands with a kid who was carrying what appeared to be money.

During a news conference held Wednesday Gov. Ron DeSantis has expressed his concerns with the restaurant, R House.

“Having kids involved with this is wrong,” said DeSantis. “That is not consistent with our law and policy in the state of Florida, and it is a disturbing trend in our society to try to sexualize these young people.”

State officials filed a complaint against R House in Wynwood on Tuesday.

DeSantis said the Department of Business and Professional Regulation investigated and sent agents to the restaurant.

According to the governor, agents found a children’s menu at the bar, and he called the actions unacceptable.
