‘DWTS’ Dust-Up! Judge Bruno Under Fire for Slamming Charlotte McKinney

Did “Dancing with the Stars” judge Bruno Tonioli go too far with his slam against model Charlotte McKinney’s intelligence?

“Extra’s” Renee Bargh caught up with Charlotte and the rest of the “DWTS” cast backstage to get their reactions after the show.

“You’re never going to win the Nobel Prize for quantum physics, but you are easy on the eyes and you produce wonderful shapes,” the outspoken judge said after Charlotte’s lackluster rumba performance with partner Keo Motsepe.

Charlotte McKinney, best known for her sexy Carl’s Jr. burger ad, said exactly how she felt about the dig. “It was extremely uncalled for.”
“I mean it didn't make sense,” Charlotte told Renee backstage. “We're weren't talking about smarts. It just came out of nowhere.”

The other judges jumped to Charlotte’s defense by telling Bruno he needed to judge just the dancing, while host Tom Bergeron tried to smooth things over by joking about Tonoli’s chances of  winning a Nobel Prize, “Neither are you.”

Charlotte and Keo received only a 22 out of 40 from the judges, which was tied for the lowest score of the night, and despite America voting Charlotte out, Bruno’s comment sparked some serious backlash on social media causing some to use the hashtag #Notcool #DWTS.
