The mother of the two teenaged girls who were beaten on-camera by their father for ‘twerking,’ i.e. gyrating in a very suggestive manner, called police and had the man arrested. Thirty-five-year-old Greg Horn has been charged with child endangerment and corporal punishment after he beat his 14- and 12-year-old daughters for posting a ‘twerking’ video on Facebook.
The video of the teens being whooped by their father with cable wire went viral earlier this week. In the video, Horn can be seen walking in on his daughters creating a twerking video to upload onto the Internet. He orders them to stand in a corner and begins to whoop them. The girls are heard screaming as the cable wire hits their skin. The teenagers are saying their father hit them as a punishment for sneaking out of the house. Horn is slated to be arraigned on April 16.
This is not the first time a twerking video has gone viral. Earlier this year, a short video clip of a visibly young boy twerking, surfaced on the Twerkers Gone Wild Facebook fanpage. The video, titled “Wheres This Kid Father?” has acquired 24,800+ comments, 54,500+ shares, and 19,700+ comments. The video sparked the ongoing debate about whether or not there is a hidden agenda to make African-American men effeminate.
