freedom to twerkA party celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr day called Freedom 2 Twerk has been cancelled after a poster promoting the event caused ‘outrage’.

A Michigan party promotor called Mid-Michigan Teen Parties photoshopped Dr Martin Luther King Jr’s head onto the body of a man wearing a heavy gold medallion and throwing a gang sign.

Bernice King, daughter of the late civil rights icon, called the poster appalling and almost embarrassing in an interview with Fox 5 .

I lost a father who sacrificed everything for them to live a much more dignified and respectful life. And for it to come to this just makes me sad.

The owner of the venue where the Freedom to Twerk party was to be held, Vic McEwan, said he was not consulted about the advertising materials.

We have since cancelled said event, refunded the promotor’s deposit and informed the group that they will no longer be welcome at our establishment.

This is about his legacy. Dr. King has done way too much for this country, or me, or anyone, to allow this to go on.
