Parents force daughter to hold sign for twerking at a junior high school dance in Bakersfield

Teen forced to hold sign on corner

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A girl who is in 7th grade was forced to hold a sign by her parents after they discovered she was "twerking" at a junior high school dance.

The mother of the girl called a local television station and said that she's making her daughter hold a sign that reads, "I was disrespecting my parents by twerking at my school dance," on the corner of Union and California avenues.

The school that she attends does not outlaw the dancing style, the mother told the station.

The dance, which in by no means is a new dance, recently resurfaced after Miley Cyrus danced and gyrated her way into VMA history with her duet with Robin Thicke.
