Hampton University Lectures Students About Twerking

Almost immediately after the MTV Music Video Awards aired, a Twitter image from Hampton University’s freshman convocation featuring the message “Hampton Ladies Do Not Twerk!!!” went viral. The tweet caused confusion that the HBCU was banning twerking. However twerking was not banned but simply referenced due to recent events and to get students attention.
