The 32-year-old Dancing With The Stars Amber Rose who is also a television personality said that she took offense to Julianne Hough’s criticism of her “Booty” routine with pro dance partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy on Monday’s episode of “Dancing with the Stars.”
According to Amber..
“Last night was like, they did the commentary, and I, it was a point in the dance where I had to lift my leg up and Maks dipped me & Julianne said, ‘Oh, I’m uncomfortable,’ and instantly I felt, I did feel body shamed.”
She also added…
“You know, all the beautiful professional dancers that are on Dancing With the Stars, I mean they dress very sexy and they do the splits and they grind up on these guys and they look absolutely stunning and get a standing ovation. And me and my body, my hips, my ass, my breasts made her uncomfortable.”
Dancing With The Stars Amber Rose and dance partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy scored 25 points with their salsa to “Booty” by JLo (featuring Papa Johns truther Iggy Azalea). They were also the last couple to be called safe.
Dancing With The Stars judges Hough responded to Amber’s comments by saying her “uncomfortable” remark had absolutely nothing to do with the model and TV personality’s body.
She told E! News.. “To be clear, that was a produced package, not live coverage, and they can put those sound bytes anywhere. My “uncomfortable” comment was only about the fact that I felt like I wanted more out of the performance.”
The dancing with the stars judge further explained… “When someone is doing a hot, sexy dance like that without the right amount of energy that is required, it can be uncomfortable to watch.”
“Also, any kind of body shaming goes against everything I believe in.”
The popular reality TV show “Dancing with the Stars” airs Mondays at 8 p.m ET on the ABC Network.
