Hustler Club Strip Truck Causes Outrage In San Francisco Neighborhood (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

For the past few months, Larry Flynt's Hustler Club in San Francisco has jumped on the mobile bandwagon with its infamous strip truck: an oversized (and suggestively decorated) truck with glass walls, a stripper pole and scantily-clad dancers inside.

And though the truck cruises through popular nightlife districts on weekend nights, it isn't the truck's nighttime joyrides that have incited controversy, but its daytime parking spot.

According to City Supervisor Eric Mar, the driver has been taking the truck home and parking it in residential neighborhoods, sparking angry complaints from neighbors.

"It's right by the Anza Branch Library and half a block from an elementary school," said Mar to CBS.

"Mostly [those complaining] they're women. Parents," said Mar to the Daily News. "There's a general feeling from people that these kind of vehicles, with large photographs of scantily clad women, should not be there."

After first receiving complaints, Mar had the truck towed for expired tags, but it soon returned.

San Francisco is home to a long-standing law that prohibits vehicles with commercial advertising –- a law that the Hustler Club may have been violating –- and rumors circulated that Mar may have been planning to push the law even further, requiring that such vehicles be towed.

But according to Richmond SF Blog, Mar eventually spoke to the manager of the Hustler Club who claimed that the truck has since returned to Las Vegas.

"If I had to do legislation, I would have," said Mar to Richmond SF. "But working with the police and residents has successfully resolved this issue."
