Just when I wanted to learn how to twerk!
Three women in Russia have been arrested for twerking at a World War II monument. A court in southern Russia has sentenced the three young women to brief jail terms for making a video showing them twerking next to a World War II memorial.
The Chicago Tribune reports that five of the six women who were seen twerking at the monument were found guilty of “hooliganism.” Two of the ones who were found guilty were spared jail sentences due to their health conditions. The other three women, a 19-year-old and two 20-year-old’s, were sentenced to 15 days and 10 days respectively in jail.
Prosecutors in Novorossiysk also said they were pressing charges against the parents of one underage girl who was twerking with the others girls for “the failure to encourage the physical, intellectual, physiological, spiritual and moral development of a child.”
