#ABCReports: ABC News’ FAIL on “Twerking” Roasted on Twitter

[ 49 ] August 27, 2013 |

After Miley Cyrus showed her (lack of an) ass (literally) at the MTV VMAs, she’s been the subject of everyone’s posts and news reports. It’s been over a day and many of us are over it. However, ABC News decided to do a “scientific” report on twerking and it’s just utterly ridiculous.

Isn’t there war, famine, racism and other terrible things to cover? Y’all are choosing to dedicate air time to TWERKING?!? UGH!!!

Look. I’m a fan of the Twerk Team as much as the next. But COME ON!!! Did they really have to do all’at? Whatever. Twitter decided to do something about it, so #ABCReports hashtag was born. Below are some of the funniest ones.

  8. MzQuinn says:

    Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t really care for twerking. I don’t care to see it, and I think it’s overrated at this point. ABC needs to find something else to report on, but Twitter is killing me! Hahahaha those people are so crazy!

  27. rattler08 says:

    Wait a damn minute!!! Do any of yall catch this line in the ABC article:

    “She said it will definitely shape and strengthen all those muscles as well as give them the stamina to do activities important to most people heavily involved in twerking like say, picking up a screaming child off the floor.”

    I see what the hell they did there and I don’t like it!

  28. rikyrah says:

    This is random but I write for a blog at Brown University and we coincidentally did the same thing for fake overly academic classes. Some examples:

    AMST 1000B — Party in the U.S.A.: Festival Culture from Woodstock to Ultra

    POLS1821JZ — Empire State of Mind: Political Psychology of Colonization

    GNSS1080 — Feelin’ On Your Booty: The Politics of Consent

    etc. here’s the link:

    I’m confused…why is everybody here *surprised*?!? It’s almost as if you thought that ABC was a legitimate news outlet…lol!

    Let me let you in on something: ABC is Disney. They aren’t just merely OWNED by Disney; they *ARE* Disney. And since the larger TV outlets for the most part shuttered most of their news divisions in the ’80′s after Reagan stopped enforcing the “Fairness Doctrine” (which required any and all broadcast TV stations who use the public spectrum for over-the-air broadcast to do one hour of REAL news [i.e. no "edutainment"] per 24-hour day), ABC *ESPECIALLY*, ABC “News” has become largely a joke.

    They are nothing more than “Disney News” now, basically. They BADLY misreport and oversimplify important domestic news — ESPECIALLY if it involves politics — international news — especially if it involves US policy or military action overseas — insert random and useless “feel good” stories about a puppy or food bank somewhere, and worst of all, they even advertise Disney products, TV shows, movies, and initiatives AS IF IT WERE news.

    So, honestly, as pathetic as this is, it’s actually rather typical of ABC “News.” It only seems randomly ridiculous to you because they revealed their hand more than usual this time. Seriously, as far as domestic news outlets go, ABC is by FAR one of the WORST. (Excluding the right-wing propaganda such as Fox News, of course.)
