Adult film star Stormy Daniels, who rose to international fame over allegations of extramarital sex with President Donald Trump and an investigation into "hush money" payments, canceled a South Florida show this weekend after she said the strip club’s owner called her assistant an anti-gay slur.
Daniels posted on social media that she would not be performing at the Goldfinger club in Sunrise – where she was scheduled to perform both Friday and Saturday - while posting a picture of herself with two men and her middle finger extended.
The 39-year-old claims the owner called her assistant the slur after asking her to perform in the VIP room even though it wasn’t in her contract, according to the Miami Herald.

The day's top national and international news.
“That kind of abuse will not be tolerated. Now they are saying I no showed. Clearly you can see from this photo that is NOT the case,” Daniels wrote in the post before adding “when are (expletives) gonna learn that I do not respond well to bullies?”
The owner of the club did not respond to the paper’s request for comment.
Daniels claimed she had sex with Trump in 2006 and later sued to break a non-disclosure agreement that she signed before the 2016 election that was part of a settlement in which she was reportedly paid $130,000. Trump has denied the affair but acknowledged a payment was made.
Trump’s former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, pleaded guilty to several charges and has admitted funneling money to Daniels in an attempt to silence her about the affair weeks before the 2016 election.
Federal prosecutors in New York last week put the weight of the government behind Cohen's assertion that he paid off Daniels "in coordination with and at the direction of" Trump, NBC News reported.
Daniels performed earlier this year in West Palm Beach, doing two shows at a club across the street from Trump International Golf Club and just miles from the President’s Mar-a-Lago estate.
