A drag queen named Mama G taught children to ‘twerk’ at a United Kingdom library earlier this month as part of a Drag Queen Story Hour event that is also spreading throughout the United States.
Mama G was booked at the Bideford and Barnstaple libraries.
“All you need to do is you just need to stand with your feet sort of shoulder-width apart like so,” an adult male in full drag instructed the children as parents looked on.
The library boasted about the event, saying, “Mama G is back in Devon this week. Combining panto, drag and the traditional art of story-tell: Mama G will be sharing tales that celebrate being who you are & loving who you want.”
Several Twitter users voiced their opposition.
“Wholly inappropriate for children,” wrote one, adding, “what on earth were you thinking.”
Another wrote, “Heavens, this abomination is in UK now. Twerking for toddlers. Hiding in plain sight.”
