BAKERSFIELD, Calif., Sept. 10 (UPI) --
The parents of a California seventh grader said the girl is being forced to hold a sign at a roadside for "twerking" at a school dance.
The girl's mother called KERO-TV, Bakersfield, Calif., and said her daughter is holding the sign at a Bakersfield roadside as a punishment for engaging in the lewd dance moves at a middle school dance.
"I was disrespecting my parents by twerking at my school dance," the girl's sign read.
The mother said the school does not outlaw the dance.
