(Newser) – Last time Beyoncé's "Single Ladies" hit the viral video circuit, a toddler was losing it because his dad told him he couldn't be one. That father might have some advice for the parents of the 8- and 9-year-old girls whose raunchy routine set to the megahit isn't going over very well. "Pedophiles don't need more kindling on their deranged fires," Sarah Kaufman writes for the Washington Post, "but displays like this one shovel it on."

The girls, clad in bikini-style tops and short shorts, bump and grind as part of the "urban dance competition" World of Dance. The crowd cheers wildly. "This is taken completely out of context," the father of one of the girls, who apparently hasn't heard of YouTube, told Good Morning America. "The girls weren't meant to be viewed by millions of people."
