The father of two teenagers was outraged when he found out about a so-called “twerking” video they had posted online. So mad, he allegedly whipped them with a cable repeatedly.
Graphic video of the beating was captured on video and posted online earlier this week, going viral in the days since. The punishment is in response to what some have said was a twerking video made by the girls, which is a sexually suggestive dance move involving one’s rear end.
In the video showing the violent punishment, the father can be heard saying at the beginning a word that sounds like “a**”. The 30-second clip shows the dad using a cord to whip one of the girls who falls on the floor crying. He then tells the second “over there next,” directing her toward the wall in front of him. The girl can be heard yelling “Daddy, I’m sorry” as she continues to scream in pain as he repeatedly whips her.
Watch the video (Warning: graphic footage of the beating and strong language):
World Hip Hop Star posted the video with the title “Good Or Horrible Parenting!? Father Catches His Daughter Doing A Twerk Video On FB & Goes Ham!” The description goes on to state:
Father punishes his daughters by whooping them with a cable wire after finding out they did a twerk video on Facebook. Good parenting or did he take it too far?
There was similar incident of abuse involving a Dayton, Ohio, father recently where he used a cord connecting his TV and DVD player to beat his daughters. According to WKEF, the girls in this incident told Dayton police they were beaten for sneaking out of the house.
WKEF covered the police report, saying the results of the attack were visible on the girls’ legs. It was their mother who called the police after noticing the welts and wounds after her daughters had been visiting their father, Greg Horn.
Horn has been charged with child endangerment and corporal punishment.
For Kevin Lavoie from Montgomery County Children Services, this indictment comes during Child Abuse Awareness Month. Lavoie told WKEF people suspecting abuse should not have “have any reservations about calling 224- KIDS and letting us know about a circumstance or a concern.”
This story has been updated to clarify that the father charged with beating his daughters might not be related to the graphic video.
