Twerking Taboo

YouTube celebrates its 10th birthday this year and now, believe it or not, 300 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute, from IS beheadings to Gangnam style (CLICK). One thing I've learnt from YouTube is that twerking is taboo in Russia. The BBC reports that a court in Novorossiysk has jailed three women for performing a twerking dance in front of a World War Two memorial. Two of the dancers were sentenced to 10 days in jail each, a third to 15 days and two others received fines on charges of petty hooliganism. The Beeb also points out that Russian authorities have closed a dance studio after a YouTude video was released.of its 16-year-old students twerking in a number entitled Winnie the Pooh and Some Bees (CLICK). The video has been seen 4 million times. Of course Auntie daren't show it. Here it is, so you can see what all the fuss is about.
