When life hands you lemons, you make lemonade. So when pop culture gives you twerking, give back with a $50,000 “Twerk Sumthin” scholarship. That’s what rapper Juicy J’s doing. The reaction from women on Twitter today is … mixed.
I love that Juicy J is giving out a twerking scholarship. Let these young women have a chance.

I think the twerking scholarship is actually dope. It'll help raise awareness of what twerking actually should look like.

All of these people who are defending this Twerking scholarship can go back to their meaningless existence.

The two videos with the most votes at the moment are from young women who refuse to twerk:
Good for them.
Naturally, there’s a boycott. Juicy J is not down with the ingratitude.

What's wrong with getting a twerking scholarship? Matter of fact, why y'all demonizing twerking?

Yeah, twerking isn't the most ideal thing to get a scholarship for, but at least he's letting girls use something they know to do better.
