Pole dancing instructor sues Zoom after ‘uninvited men’ interrupt online classes

A Texas pole dancing instructor filed a class action lawsuit against Zoom, claiming the video-conferencing app’s “security failings” enabled creepy men to access her online classes.

Stacey Simins, who owns a dance studio in Austin, began offering Zoom classes in March after the state’s coronavirus restrictions were put in place, Bloomberg Law first reported.

“After Ms. Simins began using Zoom, uninvited men joined some of her classes on Zoom,” the suit, which was filed Monday in California federal court, alleges.

“The attackers were intimidating and harassing to Ms. Simins’ clients. On at least one occasion, Ms. Simins had to cancel a session as a result,” the suit says.

Simins, in the suit, said she decided to use Zoom based on its “promised” security features.

“But in reality, Zoom has failed to deliver private and secure video conferencing,” the suit alleges.

Zoom did not respond to a request for comment.
