Amber Rose Felt ‘Body Shamed’ by Julianne Hough on ‘Dancing with the Stars’

Amber Rose was upset by a comment that Dancing with the Stars judge Julianne Hough made during her performance to Jennifer Lopez’s “Booty.”

On her latest episode of Loveline with Amber Rose, the model addressed a bit of Hough’s side chatter that was made during her salsa dance with Maksim Chmerkovskiy on DWTS.

“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 & [Hough] said, ‘Oh, I’m uncomfortable,’ and instantly I felt, I did feel body shamed,” said Rose.

“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,” continued Rose. “And me, and my body, my hips, my ass, my breasts made [Hough] uncomfortable.”

Hough defended herself in a statement to E! News following Rose’s claim. “To be clear, that was a produced package, not live coverage and they can put those sound bites anywhere,” said Hough. “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 concluded, “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.”
