Amber Rose Says She Felt Body-Shamed By Judge Julianne Hough On 'DWTS'
And Julianne responded. Drama!
Amber Rose has been killing it on this season of Dancing With The Stars, and while she's spoken about how much she's loving the experience, she's also revealed that it hasn't been all fun and games.
On a recent episode of Loveline With Amber Rose, the talk show host revealed that she felt body-shamed by judge Julianne Hough during a critique of her salsa performance on Monday's episode.
"It was a point in the dance where I had to lift my leg up and [my partner] Maks dipped me and [Julianne] said, 'Oh, I'm uncomfortable,' and I instantly, I felt, I did feel body-shamed," Rose said, in response to co-host Dr. Chris Donaghue's comment that he felt Hough's criticism was unfair.
"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," she continued. "And for me, and my body, my hips, my ass, my breasts, made her uncomfortable."
Hough responded to Rose's comments in a statement to E! News, saying, "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."
"Trust me, I'm ALL for a sexy booty dance!! We all know that!!" she continued. "And any kind of body-shaming goes against everything I believe in."
