Find out why the One Direction guys think that the twerking craze is "inappropriate," as Harry Styles sheds some light on the age it's aimed at. Do you agree that the twerk trend is bad for kids? One Direction have been asked to twerk in a lot of interviews (heck, Harry Styles even did it at the Teen Choice Awards!)...but what do the guys really think of the twerking craze?

Interestingly, they call it "inappropriate."

Surprised?

In a new interview, Harry, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik sound off on twerking and why they think it's not appropriate.

Harry told Moviefone, "I think it's quite inappropriate," explaining, "Especially for the age groups that it's aimed at."

When asked if they're ever concerned about their young fans, Harry noted, "When they're twerking, yes."

He added, "I think, you know, it's promoting promiscuity."

For the record, Liam is worried about the back injuries you could suffer from the dance!

Twerking has become such a huge trend (thanks in large part to Miley Cyrus, no doubt), that the term just landed in the Oxford English Dictionary.

The definition: "dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance."

Sounds like Harry's theory of it promoting promiscuity isn't that far off.
