Adult-film star Stormy Daniels canceled an appearance at a Florida nightclub Saturday because, she said, the owner called her assistant a "fucking faggot."

Daniels -- famous for having received a payment from Donald Trump, through attorney Michael Cohen, to silence her about a 2006 sexual encounter with the future president (something Trump has denied) -- was supposed to perform at Goldfinger, a strip club in Sunrise, Fla.

But Daniels found out she was expected to appear in the club's VIP room, which she said was not in her contract. And then the name-calling ensued, according to a message she posted on Instagram.

The club's management, also via social media, denied that the owner or any staff member made such a remark and contended that Daniels had breached her contract.

One commenter on Daniels's Instagram post said she "should have done the show for the paying fans," the Miami Herald notes. She replied, "I'm very sorry to those who paid to see me tonight but keep in mind that I forfeited a $6800 paycheck by doing what I felt was the right thing to do for someone I care about. ... How is it that people seeing my tits matters more than that?"
