Soggy Dollar said the video footage was captured at the establishment but noted that the visitors were not snorting an illegal substance.
“It was not cocaine. They were doing [alcohol] body shots, and because of the nature of our business – we have kids and we have respectable people that come to our business every day – we do not tolerate that sort of thing,” a representative of the beach facility told BVI News.
The representative further said he was the Soggy Dollar employee who was seen on camera warning the visitors. He said though alcohol is not illegal, it was inappropriate for them to be doing open body shots at the facility.
“I went to them on two occasions. I warned them on both occasions. I told them if I warned them a third time I would have to ask them to leave.”
The representative further underscored that Soggy Dollar does not permit illicit or inappropriate activities at the establishment.
Meanwhile, the video in question was leaked on social media recently with the title ‘Tourists Snorting Coke British Virgin Islands’.
