31 High School Students Were Suspended For Twerking
"Twerking" is the latest dance craze. And by that we mean Miley Cyrus is quite fond of posting videos of herself doing it.
But the administration at Scripps Ranch High School in San Diego are not fond of Twerking. In fact they just suspended 31 students for their own video of the dance, which they claim involves a female "shaking their hips and bottom in a bouncy up and down motion, causing it to 'wobble' and 'jiggle,' often while a male observes the gyrations." That's...pretty accurate actually.
According to a school spokesperson this violates school policy which forbids "verbal, visual, or physical conduct of a sexual nature made by someone from or in the educational setting."
You see the problem was the students made the video on school grounds, possibly using school equipment. Then they put it up on YouTube.
In addition to missing a few school days, six of the suspended students are seniors and won't be able to attend graduation or prom, which would seem like the perfect venue to show off their latest "Twerks."
What do you think? Fair punishment? The video in question was recently removed from YouTube (but we found a mirror of the video here), but if you want to get a better idea of the dance you can check out Miley Twerking -- while dressed as a unicorn for some reason -- below.
