For those who haven’t been watching, Amber Rose has been rocking Dancing With The Stars. As one of the show’s season 23 cast members, Rose was one of our favorites from the start, but it looks like Julianne Hough might not feel the same way. During Monday night’s show, Rose accused Hough of body shaming her while evaluating her performance.
“It was a point in the dance where I had to lift my leg up and Maks [Chmerkovskiy] dipped me and [Julianne] said, ‘Oh, I’m uncomfortable,’ and instantly I felt, I did feel body shamed,” she said on Loveline, in a clip obtained by E! News.
“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,” she continued. “And me, and my body, my hips, my ass, my breasts made her uncomfortable.”
Despite how it looks, Hough said her comment was edited out of context. “To be clear, that was a produced package, not live coverage and they can put those sound bites anywhere,” she said in a statement. “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.”
She continued, “Trust me I’m ALL for a sexy booty dance!! We all know that!!. And any kind of body shaming goes against everything I believe in.”
I get the whole edited sound bite thing, but if that was the case, surely Rose wouldn’t have been offended by the original comment. Considering she says she heard it firsthand, we find Hough’s response unlikely. But who knows! Maybe Rose’s hearing was edited out of context as well.
