Amber Rose Felt Body Shamed by Julieanne Hough on Dancing with the Stars

Uh oh. Dancing with the Stars contestant, Amber Rose, is upset with judge Julianne Hough.

On her latest Loveline with Amber Rose, the season 23 contestant revealed she felt “body shamed” when the Grease Live star commented on her week three “Booty” salsa with pro partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

“Last night was like, they did the commentary, and I, it was a point in the dance where I had to lift my leg up and Maks dipped me & [Julianne] said, ‘Oh, I’m uncomfortable,’ and instantly I felt, I did feel body shamed,” Rose, 32, said.

“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,” the mother of one continued.

She concluded, “And me, and my body, my hips, my ass, my breasts made her uncomfortable.”

Amber Rose misinterpreted her comments said Julianne in a response to 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. ”

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.”

Maksim defended Amber’s dance in his Entertainment Weekly blog: “I think a bit more constructive criticism from the judges would have been helpful. It made me so upset to see how sad Amber was after the judges’ comments … The bottom line is the song says ‘booty, booty, booty’ about 70% of the song, so there’s no way we weren’t going to work that into the dance!”

Welp, I expect Monday’s show to be lively…
