Two strippers filed a lawsuit against a strip after they were allegedly banned from the VIP rooms for the color of their skin, according to court documents in New York.

28-year-old Kieara Gaskin and 37-year-old Tenia Stuckey, said that they were discriminated against in Brooklyn and Queens by Starlets and Club Lust, which are owned by Kevin Burch.

According to the lawsuit, the women claim that security guards decide the dancer who will get a chance to dance for well-off client.

In exchange, the dancers had to tolerate the sexual advances of the security guards.

The lawsuit, which was filed in federal court in Brooklyn, alleges that the owner told the security guards to keep Gaskin and Stuckey out of the VIP rooms because they are black.

The dancers also claim that managers used the term n****r with certain clients. Gaskin and Stuckey are seeking unspecified damages from Burch.
