Another life taken from us too soon.

Atlanta’s original Twerk Team dancer, Betty Butt, was killed after being shot in the head at an apartment complex, during a botched robbery on Wednesday (Nov 12). The unexpected passing of the dancer was revealed by her Twerk Team counterpart, Jamie, better known as Mizz Twerksum, who expressed her grief on her Instagram account who paid tribute to her friend.


“I never thought I would be posting rip Betty I’m numb af right now . I could say so much but the most important thing is the last time we talked I told you I love you and you told me you loved me back that’s all that matters to me .

I just look back at how we started off friends in high school to starting something bigger than we all could have can imagined .

I remember us wrestling before every video and going to mc Donald’s splitting up the money we did have and balling out on the dollar menu me being underage sneaking into clubs and most off all us getting on each other nerves all the time being on the road days at a time working hard towards getting back home so we can shop and blow it all lol even the bad times I cherish it all every moment .

I knew you were going to have 100 kids lol you always loved kids I knew we were the dancing TLC and destiny child hahaha Yall always use to get mad when I said I was Beyoncé .

This just doesn’t feel real right now I don’t think it really ever will I cant stop crying just knowing I’ll never be able to talk or see you again .

In life we always say we’ll wait on the right time to make something right but when is the right time ? Life isn’t guaranteed . Rip Betty I love you Jamie”

Another Twerk Team founding member, Lady Luscious expressed her pain via Instagram as well with the caption, “This doesn’t even feel real they took you away now all I’m left with is words and convos that never happened if you love someone hold them close life is too short for the bullshit I love you big sister #RIPBeTTyBuTT I’m going to miss you
