Popular rapper, Ice Spice, had a 16-year-old girl twerk in her music video which is still up on YouTube and is currently on 1.3 million views.
Don’t expect any backlash.

Ice Spice is genuinely so wrong for having that lil girl twerk in her video. And I know she be in twitter too so if she doesn’t respond to the concerns on that, that’s very weird to me
