After her award winning twerk performance went viral, 24-year-old Carla found herself looking for a new job. The elementary school teacher was on vacation in Cabo San Lucas when she took home the gold medal an $260 in a silly dance contest that features some less than humble pelvic gyrations.
A video of her performance was uploaded to Facebook and seen by her employers at a private elementary school in Ciudad Obregon, Mexico. Carla is upset and doesn’t believe she’s done anything wrong.
According to Mexican newspaper Reforma she said, “I was singled out as immoral, called immature and a whore. I’m not doing anything wrong. It’s a dance competition, and participating in it does not define me as a person. I’m not naked or having sex, much less consuming drugs or disrespecting someone.” Her family and friends have rallied to provide support and are gathering a petition for her reinstatement.
