Cheerleader done for 'not shaking booty'
An 11-year-old Nebraska girl was kicked off her cheerleading squad after complaining to her coach that she didn't want to "shake her booty," the girl's mother told FOXNews.com Wednesday.
Sabrina Frampton said her daughter, Fayleen, was told last week that she was no longer part of the junior cheerleading squad in Ashland, Neb., after objecting to one of the group's 40-plus cheers.
"She had mentioned to the coach earlier in the year that she didn't like it," Sabrina Frampton said.
"Being the older girl on the squad this year, she felt a little more uncomfortable shaking her booty than the other girls."
Frampton said her daughter's fourth year on the Blue Jays team of girls — ages five to 12 — was cut unnecessarily short due to her concerns about one of the cheers that included the phrase: "Jump, shake your booty, jump, jump, shake your booty."
Frampton continued, "When she spoke up, the coach said that was not her decision to make."
The volunteer coach, Toni Harris, later told the girl on Oct. 11 that she was no longer welcome on the team for its remaining two games, Frampton said.
Harris, who could not be reached for comment, told WOWT.com the cheer is a crowd-pleaser and that she had never received any prior complaints.
"I just thought it was best to ask her not to participate for the last few games," Harris told the website.
