Willy Paul Slams TikTok Twerking Girls, Says They Lack Self-Respect
Kenyan musician Willy Paul has taken to social media to criticize women who twerk on TikTok. In a series of posts, Paul said that women who twerk online are “asking for it” and that they lack self-respect.
“These girls who shake their hips on TikTok so that artists can see and post, do they remember that there is something called self-respect?” Paul wrote. “What they don’t know is that what they show to the artists is what those artists will come looking for. They are then left blaming themselves for the bad decisions when the artist has already taken what he wants from them.”
Paul’s comments have been met with mixed reactions. Some people have agreed with him, saying that women who twerk online are sending the wrong message. Others have defended the women, saying that they are simply expressing themselves and that they should not be judged.
This is not the first time that Paul has made controversial comments about women. In February, he advised men to stay away from women who are obsessed with social media. He said that Instagram and TikTok girls are “poison” and that it is better to find a girlfriend from the village.
Paul’s comments have been criticized by many, who say that he is perpetuating harmful stereotypes about women. They say that his comments are misogynistic and that they contribute to a culture of violence against women.
It is important to note that not all women who use social media are the same. There are many women who use social media in a positive way, to connect with friends and family, to share their work, and to learn new things. It is unfair to judge all women based on the actions of a few.
It is also important to remember that twerking is a form of dance that has been around for centuries. It is a way for women to express themselves and to have fun. There is nothing wrong with twerking, and women should not be shamed for doing so.
Willy Paul’s comments are harmful and they contribute to a culture of violence against women. We should all stand up against misogyny and sexism, and we should support women’s right to express themselves freely.
