‘Twerk’ Remark Overshadows First Female Ballon d’Or Winner

The DJ later apologized via social media but many saw his remarks as sexist. In sporting news, Washington Capitals AHL affiliate Hershey Bears set a new world record throwing nearly 35,000 teddy bears on the ice for their annual Teddy Bear Toss for charity.
