A disturbing video of three teenaged girls twerking and giving one another lap dances at a church surfaced on Facebook Monday night. The disturbing two-minute video, posted on TonyaTkoShow Facebook fanpage, shows the young girls gyrating on the floor, on the pews, and then on one another. The video instantly sparked intense debate among commenters about how the girls should be punished — with many of the commenters calling for the same gruesome whooping that two teens received that landed their father in jail after he punished the girls for making a similar video.
As the video opens, the twerking music is heard in the background with the videographer (having the voice of a young girl) saying, “Y’all twerking at church.” Another teen is heard asking her peers, “[Are] you putting that on Facebook?” The videographer exclaims, “You should!” As one of the girls gyrates on her peer, the videographer is heard saying, “She [is] a ‘lil nasty girl,” as she chuckles. The videographer then summons Shaneka to the floor and tells her “Go ‘head chic. Go ‘head twerk somethin’ for us.” The girls giggle as Shaneka struggles to twerk. The video clip becomes more disturbing throughout as the teens gyrate on top of each other.
Teens’ obsession with twerking on film for mass distribution online is probably becoming a gold mine for pedophiles, placing the children’s lives in danger. 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.
