An elite sex club booted its founder for having outed Hunter Biden as a former member, the Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday.
Damon Lawner founded Snctm in 2013 and sold the club for $1 million. He has "had no affiliation with Snctm since 2019," a club spokeswoman wrote in an email to the Times.
"Snctm, as a private members club, prioritizes the safety and privacy of our esteemed members above all," the email read. "Consequently, we neither confirm nor deny the identities of our attendees.
"Furthermore, we uphold a strict code of conduct, and any infringement leads to a lifetime ban. Please note that Mr. Lawner's membership has been revoked, effective immediately."
Lawner reportedly started Snctm after watching Tom Cruise's "Eyes Wide Shut."
Despite having sold the club for just $1 million, the report claims membership fees run up to $75,000 per year and has become a sex sanctum for "Hollywood actors, rock stars, chief executives, city officials and run-of-the-mill millionaires," according to the Times.
Lawner sold because the lifestyle ruined his relationships and family, he told the Times.
"Hunter was a member at Snctm, and I canceled his membership after 1 party because he's a scumbag," Lawner wrote in a deleted Instagram Story post, according to the report.
Lawner said he was fine with the lifetime ban.
"Posting what I did on my Instagram about Hunter was me letting people know that the type of behavior that he exhibited was something that upsets me," Lawner told the Post. "I knew that the consequences could be me not being part of Snctm anymore, but I was willing to take that risk.
"I literally don't care in the sense that I don't need to go to Snctm parties. The only reason that I have attended any parties in the last, whatever, any amount of time, is friends have wanted to check it out so I brought them. But personally it's not something I'm interested in anymore."
