The PTC aren't fans of twerking then, we assume.

The Parents Television Council in the United States have issued a complaint to MTV over the content of the VMAs broadcast last night.

They seem to be mostly upset by Miley's performance but also took issue with MTV's decision to air condom adverts when the show was rated TV-14, suggesting the content was suitable for 14-year-olds.

According to RollingStone.com, a spokesman said: "This much is absolutely clear: MTV marketed adults-only material to children while falsely manipulating the content rating to make parents think the content was safe for their children.

"MTV continues to sexually exploit young women by promoting acts that incorporate 'twerking' in a nude-coloured bikini. How is this image of former child star Miley Cyrus appropriate for 14-year-olds?"

The best bit of this whole debacle is that Miley's dad, singer-songwriter Billy Ray Cyrus, is a member of PTC's advisory board.

That won't lead to any awkward breakfast table conversation, we're sure.
