City In Louisiana Makes ‘Twerking’ Illegal – 30 Days In Jail For First Offense

Twerking illegal in Louisiana

Miley Cyrus twerking at the MTV VMAs last month

DeQuincy, LA — The dance craze twerking has become such a problem in the small town of DeQuincy, Louisiana that city officials have made it illegal.

Maynard Wilkens who is the Mayor of DeQuincy spoke to CNN about the ban on twerking that takes effect at midnight. “Twerking is a defiant act against Jesus and his teachings. The rest of the country can keep their heads in the sand about this sexual act before marriage, but not the great city of DeQuincy,” Wilkens said. “We will still allow dancing in DeQuincy, just no jigglin’, shakin’ and ‘dry humping’ anywhere in our city limits.”

Bobby Joe Williams who is the sheriff in the town told reporters about the penalties for those caught twerking. “First time offenders will receive a mandatory 30 days in the county jail. After that it will be a much harsher punishment,” Williams said. “We are not taking this matter lightly. There ain’t gonna be no twerkin’ in my city, not no more.”

24-year-old DeQuincy resident Brandon Adams told reporters he does not agree with the new law. “There is nothing to do in this town, seriously. Twerking is all us kids had left and now they’re taking it away from us,” Adams said. “I don’t see what the big deal is. At least we weren’t out causing trouble, sniffing glue and breaking stuff. I guess we’ll now have to go back to doing that.”

Twerking is a type of dancing in which the dancer, usually a woman, shakes her hips up-and-down in a bouncing motion, causing the dancer’s buttocks to shake, ‘wobble’ and ‘jiggle’ in a sexually provocative manner. The origins of twerking are unknown but were recently made popular by Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke‘s performance at the MTV VMAs last month.

The town of DeQuincy has a population of 3,398 as of the 2000 census. DeQuincy is part of the Lake Charles Metropolitan Statistical Area. So far state officials in Louisiana have yet to make a formal statement concerning the ban on twerking in DeQuincy.

    The dance started in Louisiana! The people in DeQuincy are idiots!!! Focus on something better to arrest people over!!

  2. What the young folks are gonna have to do is find an old barn or closed bar outside the city limits and secretly invite all the twerkers out for a night of twerking each others brains out. Be sure u invite the reverends daughter cause everyone knows shes the best twerker in town. Then they can perfect twerk dance moves. Some guys might be haters who cant twerk and come try to start a fight but believe me if they cant twerk they cant fight. Just kick there ass an send them on there way. Nobody will go to jail cause it wont be in town even if the sherriff finds out an tries to shut it down. Yall can get onemore amazing night of twerking in before they vote to extend the boundries of the no twerking law out of town. You girls just keep fighting for the right to jiggle wiggle bounce jirate and o yea drop it like its hot. They cant stop yall from dancing its a thing called freedom that us americans still have for the time being and the first one that goes to jail hire a lawyer out of that town of course and sue the hell out of the fuzz for locking u up for nothing. Thats like telling someone they cant say whatever u want. Others may not like what they hear and see but thats why the good lord give them eyes and ears. They dont have to look or listen. There all to nosey not to do that though and all the oldmen felt strange thangs happening down there when they seen little miley twerking an then there old ladies noticed cause they wanted some after her dance. Then they got mad. They may have gotten a little jeolous of little miley after that cause they cant twerk. Please dont try behind yalls doors either i know my good lord dont want to see old women trying to make there butts clap and half of them would probably break a hip anyways. Thats all i have to say about the twerking revolution. Who knows some big producer may take this story and turn it into a big movie but only if kevin bacon can play the lead role of the guy an miley can play the preachers daughter who just cant stop twerking. Anyways god bless have a wonderful day. Dont ever be ashamed and stop judging folks. It seems alot of those guys forgot that part of there bibles. Twerker lover for life. Ill twerk with u anytime u want miley….

      Passionate! Yet, still ignorant and classless. Dry hump at home, in the back of a car. I don’t wanna see it. Get an imagination; that’s the most “base” form of physical expression there is and ANYBODY can do it. Pigs and Idiots.

    Wow..this is far better news then that pesky reactor leaking in Japan….

  4. Ahmath says:

    Twerking is not against God people! Of course your not to do it to random guys who are not your husband out in the open but other then that its cool… People speaking like they know something…. You gotta speak what you KNOW. Is having sex wrong? no.. God created that so we can procreate, but would you do it in church? no…. Of course God sees everything, the scriptures days that the darkness is as light into him and his eyes are in every place beholding the works of men, but there’s a time and place for everything….

    Dannce and be joyous

  6. Paula says:

    Lmao dumb ass. You’re 24, why don’t you go get a job and quit being a kid. And if you’re only two options are sniffing glue and getting into trouble vs twerking well, y’all are uncreative, boring, mindless retards. Dancing is fun, sure. But seriously? Have a life.

  7. Logan N. says:

    Bwahahaha! I always thought footloose was just a movie!!

  8. Adult Stewie says:

    The South continues to keep fucking up on so many levels. Not only is this unconstitutional but it’s just plain stupid, whether its the pants rule or this, some people can’t accept a sign of the times changing. It’s 2013 not 1960.

  9. Jason Carter says:

    It is tough for us who are tweaking challenged

  10. Katie says:

    Thats hilarious, twerking has been out for like 2 years, people never noticed it until Miley Cryus did on the VMA;s, who gives a sh*t

  11. Weasel says:

    You make the law because of the Jesus crap, well what about those that don’t believe in religion? Maybe those are the ones who should be elected into office that makes these bullshit laws!

  12. Diane says:

    I believe this whole thing is taken out of context. First off as Christians we are not to judge it is written in the bible many times. Second, this violates the first amendment how is that you may ask well simple really it is you are forcing your Christian beliefs down society’s throat. If Christians are going to be so against twerking then they should be against the bible because David danced around naked outside in front of people. Funny how people can be so judgemental and think it is ok

  13. too strong for ya says:

    You People are so lost … U took the teachings of Yeshua Ben Yoseph and turned them into a comedy of errors! The real people going to hell are Christians and their ministers for misleading the masses for over a thousand years. there is no hope for the world as long as Christians have power to influence anything on any level! You are the most ignorant, narrow minded, manipulative, uninformed, hypocritical and judgemental people there are on the planet. Remember that the KKK burns crosses!

  14. Nathan de Montréal says:

    GREAT ENGLISH BOBBY JOE WILLIAMS! Is it not sad that I’m from Montréal (French Canada) and can speak YOUR primary language better than you can? Get an education already.

  15. Travis Ledford says:

    Lmfao, well looks like these twerkers need to learn how to booty juke which is another dance that is close to twerking but involves alot more shaking.

  16. lex says:

    This has to be a joke. Someone has been watching too much Footloose. I’m cracking up right now. Thank you for giving me an awesome laugh before I pass out!

    • Barb says:

      One more stupid boring footloose joke and I’ll throw up. How original! Oh, and by the way, there is no comparison between this situation and the Footloose movie. They were dancing like people with brains and some class in Footloose, not a bunch of whores and losers. End of story. Don’t bother arguing. Fact.

  17. Derek says:

    Hail satan!

  18. Yoimrick says:

    Hahaha, twerking is the only thing they have left!? Oh how sad I am for my own generation

  19. Ron says:

    What a JOKE! Land of the free. OR, am I wrong on this one? Way to make your state continue to be the laughing stock of the country. Bunch of hillbillies!

  20. Adrian says:

    I don’t give a fuck

  21. Gil says:

    Yep! Everything is illegal nowadays! You can’t hold anything on the wheel, and etc! I hate the new set of rules, especially the foreigners coming in our country! Forcfully change the name of our traditions from Christmas Concert to Winter Concert, and taking away Halloween from children! Yep, this world we live in now is fucked up!

  22. M says:

    Plot for Dirty Dancing anyone?

  23. T says:

    Twerking by itself does not violate the Bible. Whether it is sinful or not depends on what it is used for.

    If a woman dances to find love, it is not sinful. If she dances to be purely prurient, or for some other evil cause (like getting John the Baptist’s head), then it is sinful. God examines the heart and mind, and knows what’s in there.

    Normal sexual attraction is not the same as lust. Lust would be like coveting your neighbors wife, or chasing after women even though you are already married. Jesus said lusting after women was sinful, but he also said everyone who believes in Him will have their sins forgiven. Translation: Christian men can look at women all they want. It’s all the other men who need to worry.

    • HkHarris says:

      Dequincy is a disgrace to the constitution and the fifth amendment which directly supports the right to freedom of expression (So long as it isn’t inciting war.) Pollitcs and religion should be seperate as the constitution supports. This attempt at banning twerking directly correlates with some political representatives personal moral/religious beliefs. Unfortunately your religious beliefs and practices are your personl beliefs and that’s fine, buttrying to get everyone to follow your beliefs is bordering on dictatorship. That is unconstitutional and wrong. Another thing that never fails to baffle if not incense me is the fact Movie-going to see people killing in every horrible way possible is incited as something great to do on the weekends but when a young lady displays innervating expression it is consider such a horrible thing that it should be banned. PLEASE get a grip moralist.

  27. Caesar's Legion says:

    “Twerking is all we have left. I guess we’ll go back to sniffing glue and all that other bad stuff”
    First of all…
    Anyways, no jiggling? Come on, meet the people have way, man.

  28. Miley Cyrus says:

    What have i done….Oh god….WHAT HAVE I DONE!?!!

    • Mr. harris says:

      THis defiant act by the political communist in Dequincy needs to be brought to the Supreme Court. Dequincy is a complete embarrassment to Americans who fought for freedom. If you look deeply into thiws matter Dequincy are showing how many Kansmen they have in office!

    • lee says:

      i don’t know, but it was’nt twerking!!!

  29. Pap Smear says:

    This law is against the US Constitution.

    • Petrux M says:

      Pants down thugs took dignity out of good people, rights with no limitations get you nowhere. Not all of us buy prison culture crap. Show your ass crack in your house that’s fine, not in public space. Twerking in clubhouses is fine, just respect public space.

  30. K says:

    Awesome!!!! Ick!!! It’s like dry sex in public. Dance all you want but no one wants to see that.

  31. twerking says:

    I Am so glad that is illegal. I mean, there is nothing bad at twerking, but I would like that Miley that get in jail first.

  32. LaLa Garrett says:

    People do not get it! They think this should be allowed because their favorite celebrity is doing it! This is a disgrace to the human race for our women and even men to act in such way. This is not a freedom of speech, if it is, what is twerking saying about you?

  33. LaLa Garrett says:

    It begins with your morals and respect!
