DeQuincy, La Mayor Says the City Has Not Made Twerking Illegal
A recent internet story stated individuals found partaking in one of the latest dance fads called twerking will face jail time. As it circulated the internet many people were asking if it were true.
The report was rapidly spread throughout social media websites. The story included miscellaneous false quotes from DeQuincy officials saying there was a 30 day jail time penalty for first time offenders. Mayor Lawrence Henagan of DeQuincy says there is no truth to the satirical report.
Twerking is popular with the younger generation and the pop music genre. Some pop artists have been known to partake in the dance act; the most recent being Miley Cyrus at the 2013 MTV VMA’s. Although it has picked up some popularity, many are calling it an absurd and distasteful performance.
