Amber Rose says she was body shamed by ‘Dancing With The Stars’ judge
Amber Rose is speaking out after Monday night’s “Dancing With the Stars” episode claiming that judge Julianne Hough body-shamed her during her dance performance.
“It was a point in the dance where I had to lift my leg up and Maks dipped me and (Julianne) said, ‘Oh, I’m uncomfortable,’ and I instantly, I felt, I did feel body shamed,” Rose said in her “Loveline with Amber Rose” podcast.
She went on to say, “You know, all the beautiful professional dancers that are on ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ I mean they dress very sexy and they do splits and they grind up on these guys and they look absolutely stunning and they get a standing ovation. And for me, and my body, my hips, my ass, my breasts, made her uncomfortable.”
But Hough has since said that the comment was taken out of context: “To be clear, that was a produced package, not live coverage and they can put those sound bites anywhere.”
“My ‘uncomfortable’ comment was about the fact that I felt like I wanted more out of the performance — 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,” Hough explained.
“Trust me I’m ALL for a sexy booty dance!! We all know what!! And any kind of body shaming goes against everything I believe in.”
