(USA Today) -- Sofia Vergara knows how to bust a move. Sunday night, after the Emmys, the Modern Family star Tweeted a photo of herself bumping and grinding, with the following message: "Miley Cyrus this is where the twerk was invented. Colombia!"
This was a response to Cyrus' notable VMAs appearance, which had the former child star showing her adult side on stage with Robin Thicke, teddy bears and a foam finger.
On Wednesday, while promoting her Kmart line, Vergara said it was all in good fun.
"I was just dancing and one of my cousins took a picture. She showed me. I wasn't twerking or anything! When I saw it, I thought, 'I'm going to Tweet that.' I was just dancing," she says.
So, should she now hold classes in proper twerking?
"I have nothing to teach. I didn't know what I was doing. I was just dancing. It was fun. We had a great time. We were 22 people," she says.
