Kathleen Hanna's favorite popstar has been banned from bringing her Bangerz tour to the Dominican Republic for a planned September 13 concert. From high atop their highest of horses, the Dominican Republic Commission for Public Performances announced yesterday they'd cancelled the singer's upcoming Estadio Quisqueya show because the "Wrecking Ball" singer "undertakes acts that go against morals and customs, which are punishable by Dominican law."

You heard it here first: twerking has now been outlawed by the D.R. Miley's Dominican Republic gig was set to be her first in the country.
