Neil Scott, 66, owner of Perth & # 39; s Rapture nightclub, has been under fire since his controversial comments after 19-year-old Shantel Smith claimed that she had enriched her drink on Saturday night.

Since the division of the owner, a Facebook event has been organized with nearly 100 people saying they will be present hoping to put an end to the & # 39; disgusting & # 39; club.

The protest will be held Friday night and 88 people have already said they will participate.

Scott told Daily Mail Australia that he believed the protest was a & # 39; good idea & # 39; was and the & # 39; anonymous haters & # 39; would reveal that he had abused online.

& # 39; It is clear that we have all seen how (Mr. Scott) completely ignored and even ridiculed a patron who claimed that her drink was enriched at his location, & # 39; wrote the Facebook event.

& # 39; It is important that we as a community try to work together to stop the Rapture Nightclub with disgusting values. & # 39;

& # 39; If we all work together and have protests, we can change the way the nightclub operates. & # 39;

Mr. Scott, 66, has been running night clubs for 38 years and said in the aftermath of the controversy that he had received a riot of abuse online, admitting that he & # 39; every curse word you can imagine & # 39; had mentioned.

& # 39; It will be good to see the faces of hitherto anonymous haters hiding behind tag names. & # 39;

& # 39; Then there are many messages of support and some tell me that Shantel was a brat at school.

& # 39; I think it's all a big waste of time and people are disrupting our Aussie culture with all this political correctness. & # 39;

Scott said that Mrs. & # 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 reaction that was meant to wake her up to the real world.

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

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 at the premise.

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.

Instead of addressing Mrs. Smith's concerns or apologizing for what allegedly happened, he rejected her claim as a & # 39; assault & # 39; and demanded proof

& # 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;

After the 9 News incident, 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 ;.

& # 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.

Early Monday morning he placed 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 had her drink punctured, "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.

& # 39; Her first message to you was not that she wanted to get anything out of it, & # 39; a second woman added.

Finally, after four days of intense public outrage and calls to boycott his club, Mr. Scott delivered an apologetic excuse on Wednesday.

The club owner explained that the & # 39; legendary & # 39; customer service from Rapture meant that he & # 39; could not believe the story & # 39; and saw her claim as & # 39; a removal from the nightclub & # 39 ;.

& # 39; I got upset and sent a short reply and called her in a sarcastic and humiliating way, which I regret. It was under my dignity, & he said.

& # 39; I'm sorry. I should have swallowed my disbelief and let no emotion rule my head. & # 39;

Another conversation soon came to show that the club gave an inappropriate comment to a woman who asked about the dress code.

& # 39; Hey are black training pants acceptable to wear? & # 39; she asked.

& # 39; If you are stopped at the door, just take them off. I'm sure that will be fine. Make sure you wear a string, & # 39; the Facebook page of the club replied.
