Neil Scott, the owner of Perth Rapture, was widely criticized for belittling 19-year-old Shantel Smith after reporting that her drink was enriched at his location earlier this month.

Mr. Scott, 66, said that Mrs. & # 39; was not particularly attractive & # 39; and wondered why anyone would want to stab her.

Catriona Macleod, director of one of Perth & # 39; s leading liquor licensing law firms – Cullen Macleo – has now called for his license to be removed.

& # 39; The licensing authority must investigate whether he is a suitable and appropriate person to hold that license and whether what has been reported is true. In my opinion, he is not fit and appropriate, & she said.

Mrs. Macleod has written a formal letter of complaint to the director of Liquor Licensing and Liquor Enforcement Unit.

"I think his behavior is pretty reprehensible in how he reacted," Macleod told Daily Mail Australia.

Mrs. Macleod said she was shocked by his comments and how he continued to prosecute Mrs. Smith.

& # 39; I was pretty stunned. The entire purpose of our drink promotion is to minimize the damage associated with alcohol. He didn't take it seriously, he didn't look at it. & # 39;

& # 39; It was repeatedly like that & # 39; n terrible response. You can't tell people these things. & # 39;

Mrs. Macleod sent the letter to the authority early last week and was told it is being investigated.

The tumult started after Mrs. Smith sent a message to the nightclub via Facebook saying she believed she had a point.

The 19-year-old said she only drank two or three drinks before she entered the club and then one on the premises.

Mrs. Smith then said that she vomited the next two and a half hours and other & # 39; symptoms of a date rape drug & # 39; experienced.

She said she hadn't seen a bouncer near the bar and suggested that the club increase his safety to protect his reputation.

But Mr. Scott was not convinced, sent a destructive response back and wondered why someone would try to puncture her drink.

& # 39; Why would someone want to prick your drink? Have you been to a hospital and pumped up your stomach for evidence? & # 39; read the response as shared by Mrs. Smith online.

& # 39; Are you worth trying to poke your drink?

& # 39; We think this is a beating and we think no one would be stupid enough to waste their drugs drinking someone's drink. & # 39;

In a conversation with Daily Mail Australia, Scott said that Mrs. Smith is a & # 39; fairy tale & # 39; had created as part of her & # 39; desire to be important & # 39; but he refused to believe it.

& # 39; I have been dealing with spoiled children before. It felt so good that she posted my response that was meant to wake her up to the real world, "he said.

& # 39; Her multiple scenarios in the story would have the same chances of being true as the $ 100 million Powerball winner. & # 39;

Mr. Scott stayed with his controversial comments and told 7 News: & # 39; I'm not sorry and I don't regret it … the woman wasn't particularly attractive, and she was a little overweight, but that wasn't what it was was over. & # 39;

Scott remained phased by the small protest and even claimed that the & # 39; good publicity & # 39; used to be.

When she reported the alleged incident to the location, Rapture Nightclub in Perth, it sent her this answer instead of apologizing

After speaking with 9 News, the club owner embarrassed the young woman and called her & # 39; not particularly attractive & # 39 ;.

Laten Let's face it, why would anyone nail her drink? Why would they do that? What do they hope to get? What does she hope to get out of it? & # 39; Said Mr. Scott.

& # 39; I don't know if she thinks she's special enough to be poked, I don't know if that's how it works. & # 39;

Scott then told the Western Australian that the & # 39; ordinary Jane & # 39; teen had more than likely made up the story to pay attention, and added that she never had the spine incident to any of the Rapture employees reported.

& # 39; She's not a particularly attractive girl. It is just unbelievable to imagine that she had enriched her drink, it just isn't right. & # 39;

& # 39; She is just a very simple Jane-type girl. I can't understand why someone would be possessed by her. & # 39;

Mrs. Smith described the nightclub response as & # 39; disgusting & # 39 ;.

Mr Scott asked on Monday morning for Mrs. Smith's CCTV who came into the club to prove his claim that her drink was never enriched

& # 39; The answer I received was absolutely disgusting after the message I sent them was extremely polite and just asked to increase their safety, & # 39; she said.

He also posted Mrs. Smith's CCTV in the club and claimed it was proof that her drink could not have been stung.

& # 39; The big girl with the white top, the short black skirt, and the black-and-white shoes is Shantel Smith, the girl who claimed she had been given a drink, "he wrote.

& # 39; She can enter the Rapture Nightclub at 10:58 am and leave at 2.53 am. Note: none of her friends seems to be completely upset.

& # 39; She seems cheerful and did not leave the club once every 2 hours for 55 minutes. Neither has she sought help or assistance from one of the 14 employees on duty. & # 39;

Scott was convicted of posting the CCTV recordings online with hundreds of angry gamblers who threatened to boycott the location.

& # 39; It doesn't matter if this young girl has indeed been enriched in your club. You made her the victim and humiliated her & # 39 ;, a woman wrote.
