MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - Memphis police are on the case of a Memphis sex party, as video of the orgy at a Memphis club has gone viral.
It's had more than 700,000 views since it was posted on the internet just 24 hours ago. The video appears to be from a party on June 23 in Hickory Hill. People who live in the area are outraged, so are the police and the District Attorney General.
According to their Facebook page, Team Taboo, the group that threw the party, is a place where people can express themselves sexually. The City says this group has gone too far.
District Attorney General Amy Weirich says the video caught her off guard, "I'm deeply disturbed by what was in there."
Mayor A C Wharton is outraged, "We've been bombarded with calls and folks expressing outrage about the apparent sex club operating here in our city." He says, "We'll go after it with everything we have."
Ellener Coleman lives in Hickory Hill, her jaw dropped when she saw the video, "I was offended by it as a female and as an African American I was very offended... very revealing, very revealing and it is a taboo."
The video shows sex toys, oral sex, multiple partners and intercourse in the middle of the dance floor.
Memphis Police Director Toney Armstrong says MPD is investigating, "From the information we have now it appears it's a private party. We have identified the location."
That location is Club Elements on Winchester Road in Hickory Hill. Team Taboo rented the space for its private party Saturday night. According to the party's flyer, they offered free admission to anyone 18 and over before midnight.
The lewd and explicit sex acts seen on video have neighbors like Coleman devastated by the image it brings, they want police to step in. "They need to find out something because we don't need this in this community" Coleman stresses, "We do not need it, I don't want it over here, I have kids."
Weirich says she will do what's in her power to put a stop to it, "I'm deeply disturbed by it as District Attorney, as a human being, and we are looking into it, I'm not going to comment how we're looking into it, in what regard because any of that information might jeopardize anything we might do."
Datrin Delaney, Taboo's CEO, says he threw the party but claims the video is a fake. He told abc24.com "Somebody put out a video that had things that didn't go on at the party, you can clip pieces together in the video and that's exactly what happened." Even though his number appears at the end of the video he says, "I didn't put any video out, I didn't make that video, nor put my information or anything on it."
Memphis Police investigators are in contact with the owners of Club Elements to find out what they knew about the party. According to Team Taboo's Twitter, they are scheduled to make an appearance at another Memphis lounge Saturday, June 30.
