The sensible Dominican Republic government has banned Miley Cyrus concerts from its country based on “morality grounds,” People magazine reports.

Cyrus, who made “twerk” a household verb after her 2013 VMA performance when she grinded up against Robin Thicke and grabbed herself with a foam finger as he sang “Blurred Lines,” had a September concert scheduled in the country. The commission that oversees public performances released a statement Thursday saying Cyrus “undertakes acts that go against morals and customs, which are punishable by Dominican law.”

We can’t exactly blame them.

On her “Bangerz” tour, Cyrus has ridden an inflatable hot dog, had dollar bill confetti fall from the ceiling, and grinded against an Abe Clinton lookalike.

Cyrus is scheduled to appear at the 2014 VMAs this Sunday. However, she will not perform this year, likely because the network is still paying off FCC fines from last year. (RELATED: Miley Cyrus Loses It In NYC Hotel)
