If you’ve been paying attention to social media for the last several months, then I’m sure you all know twerking is the latest craze. The dance pretty much became a household name when Miley Cyrus decided to put on that unicorn costume and twerk to a rap song by J. Dash. Although twerking isn’t anything new, its popularity is and all across the world people of all races and backgrounds are dropping their knees low and popping their backsides with the best of them. Parents have made it clear they are not happy with the dance movement because it looks as if it’s a tad bit too sexual for their young kids to do, and the dance caused quite a bit of a stir recently at a high school after numerous students decided they wanted to record themselves twerking at school and post it to YouTube. It got them in some serious trouble as they were also suspended and banned from their own prom over the video that ended up becoming national news.
But now it appears rapper Juicy J. wants to bring a little positivity to the whole twerking craze, as he hopped on his Twitter account and alerted his female fans that he would be giving away a $50,000 scholarship to the best twerker. He tweets:
im giving out a 50k scholarships to the best chick that can twerk
Producer Dr. Luke also took to his Twitter account to promote Juicy’s latest venture:
@therealjuicyj The Juicy J Scholarship Foundation !!!! Twerk your way thru college. #GivingBack
We’re not sure if Juicy J. is rethinking the offer or if maybe there was just too much backlash, but hours later he deleted the tweet. But we’re asking you, was the offer demeaning or was it really a good offer? Speak on it below.
