Miley Cyrus is about to learn a very important lesson in respectful twerking.

Kicking off a series of shows in Mexico in Monterrey, Miley may have gotten a little too wild as her dancers began to spank her twerking booty with the country's flag. And this all happened on Mexico's Independence Day, of all days!

According to Reuters, the Mexican state legislature has asked the Mexican federal government to fine the 21-year-old pop star.

Local lawmaker Francisco Trevino told the news source that the Interior Ministry had secured a warrant from the Neuvo Leon state legislature, allowing them to enforce a law on the use of the flag.

Trevino added that Cyrus or her team could be fined up to around $1,200 or be detained for 36 hours.

Cyrus wouldn't be the first star to be penalized for inappropriate use of the flag. Paulina Rubio was fined in 2008 after she posed with the flag wrapped around her naked body.
