Jerks That Twerk

A man, who asked not to be identified, was in a Washington, D.C., convenience store when two women approached him. Surveillance cameras show the women “twerking” and groping the man. The victim said he asked the cashier to call for help. “What do you want me to do?” the man at the counter said. The victim said later he thought the women might be prostitutes, and their pimp could be outside and “could have been with guns to come and shoot me.” The man called police himself, and Ayanna Knight, 22, was arrested on third-degree sex abuse charges. The other suspect has not been caught. The victim says he has received backlash on social media, with some people saying he should have welcomed the attention. “I was assaulted sexually,” the man says. “I felt 100 percent violated. I felt really humiliated also, because when someone is just grabbing your body parts without your permission, no matter who it is, that’s just a violation completely.” (MS/WTTG Washington, WRCD Washington) ...What’s between your legs shouldn’t matter for how the rest of you is treated.
