CORPUS CHRSITI - Friday night, we told you how the "2013 Twerk Bash" was supposed to be held at the American Legion this coming Saturday. The Commander of the American Legion Hall pulled the plug on the event after he got a flood of complaints.
But now we're told the '2013 Twerk Bash' will still be going on this Saturday. Now it will be held at a special events hall on Ayers and Tarlton called Inspiration. Parents and students say the flyer is being passed out at Carroll, Ray, King, and Coles high schools. CCISD says these flyers should not be passed out at school.
"If it's not a school sponsored event or something tied to education we wold not have that in the school," said Chief Administrator Officer Roland Hernandez.
The event is advertised as a twerking bash and it's targeted to high school students. For those who may not know, twerking is a provocative dance that Miley Cyrus made infamous during her performance at the MTV Video Music Awards. It involves bending over and thrusting and gyrating one's hips. CCISD says a flyer promoting an event that involves twerking Is not allowed.
"Based on that information, we would definitely need to find out who is sponsoring that, how it got into the schools and then just address it," said Hernandez.
The district says they have no idea how these flyers got into the schools but they will look into it.
"Normally they go through their sponsors for any organization who would work through the administration," said Hernandez.
CCISD officials say it will be up to the school's principals to decide what type of punishment will be given to the students handing out these flyers.
