Amber Rose Felt ‘Body Shamed' by Julianne Hough’s ‘Uncomfortable’ Reaction
Reality Amber Rose is calling out “Dancing with the Stars” judge Julianne Hough for body shaming.
While Rose performed a salsa with pro dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy on Monday's show, she was in earshot of Julianne's comments. She revealed on her "Loveline with Amber Rose" podcast, “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.”
Amber reiterated, "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.”
In response to Amber's comments, Julianne says her words were taken out of context. She told E! News, "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!! And any kind of body shaming goes against everything I believe in," Hough added.
