Popular restaurant and entertainment chain Dave & Buster’s markets itself as a family-friendly environment with advertising that often targets children with its fun arcade games.

The restaurant is facing backlash after appearing to sponsor an LGBT event, which includes a children’s drag show.

The controversy emerged when the Instagram account featured Dave & Buster’s logo in a post and outlined the event scheduled for Saturday, September 23rd.

The event includes multiple drag shows and musical performances. Dave & Busters had not responded at the time of this report.

Dave & Buster’s is listed as the event’s “bar sponsor” for one-hour and 15-minute “Youth Entertainers (Drag Show).”

The event is being held in De Pere, Wisconsin, which lies just south of Green Bay.

The controversy caught the attention of the popular social media page Libs of TikTok, which shared a copy of the Instagram image and tagged Dave & Buster’s account in the post.

Libs of TikTok’s tweet highlighted the event’s nature, stating, “@DaveandBusters is sponsoring a pride event in Wisconsin where children will dress up in drag and perform a sexual-themed show as adults clap along and encourage them.”

The tweet sparked significant outrage among concerned individuals, many of whom expressed their dismay over the apparent sponsorship and called for a boycott of Dave & Buster’s.

Dave & Buster’s, a well-known restaurant and entertainment chain headquartered in Dallas, Texas, boasts a network of over 140 locations nationwide.

Renowned for its fusion of dining, arcade games, and sports viewing, Dave & Buster’s offers a distinctive entertainment experience for a diverse range of patrons.

The company has said it is committed to “inclusivity and diversity by occasionally hosting LGBT ‘pride’ events at select venues.”

These events contribute to creating a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere for all guests to enjoy, according to statements from the company.
