Remember that disturbing video of the father who viciously whipped his teenage daughters after he “caught them twerking” on Facebook? Well thanks to the power of the Internet, that man has now been arrested.

35-year-old Greg Horn, of Dayton, Ohio, was reportedly arrested this week and charged with child abuse, child endangerment and corporal punishment, after police say he used an audio/video connector cord (like what you use to connect your TV to your DVD player) to beat his young daughters, purportedly for doing what is known as “twerking.”

For those who may not know, twerking is a dance move in which mostly women shake and/or move their hips and thighs in a way that makes their butts “bounce” up and down” in what many see as a racy or sexually suggestive manner.

There’s this rumor floating around the Internet that the man brutally beat his daughters over a twerk video they posted to Facebook, but as it turns out, that’s actually not true.

The girls told police their father beat them as punishment for sneaking out of the house … though it isn’t known exactly why he decided to post it on the Internet for all the world to see.

The video footage, which went viral within days and was posted to WorldStarHipHop, shows the man beating his young daughters — whose ages are unknown — one-by-one as they holler out in pain.

According to the police report, Greg beat one of his daughters so hard that she had visible welts on both her thighs with open wounds. And all of this was just was because they snuck out late?

Whatever they did … they didn’t deserve to be whipped and beaten into submission like that.
