Attention all college bound students who plan to twerk while you study, Hampton University is NOT the place for you.
The school took a stance against twerking, now that it’s become a mainstream topic and popular dance phenomenon. The Historical Black University addressed twerk action with a lecture to freshmen students. Sources report that Hampton has issued a “no twerking” order to the women who attend. If they are caught twerking, they may be subject to disciplinary action. An image from the lecture made its rounds on the internet yesterday, reading:
“1) Hampton Ladies Do Not Twerk!!!
2) Hampton Men Do Not Take Twerkers Home To Mother
3) Employers do not discriminate between twerkers and twerkees”
Now you know, Hampton University is a Twerk Free institution.
Yuri Rogers Milligan, Director of Media Relations at Hapmpton University released the following statement regarding the University Twerking Order:
There is picture of a slide circulating on social media sites that was a part of a presentation to Hampton University freshmen. The slide has been taken out of context. The presentation was on social media and cyber bullying and was titled “Sharing Your World Technologically.” The presenter was cautioning students about posting information and or pictures, that would tarnish their brand, on social media sites. The slide referenced “twerking” because of recent events and to get students’ attention. There was no statement about banning any form of dance or expression.
Twerk away, Hampton.
