Amber Rose Felt Body-Shamed by Julianne Hough on 'DWTS'

Amber Rose says that she felt body-shamed by Dancing With the Stars judge Julianne Hough during the most recent episode of the competition series.

The 32-year-old model and entrepreneur opened up for the next episode of her talk show Loveline.

“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 [Chmerkovskiy] dipped me & [Julianne] said, ‘Oh, I’m uncomfortable,’ and instantly I felt, I did feel body shamed,” Amber said (via 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. And me, and my body, my hips, my ass, my breasts made her uncomfortable,” she added.

Julianne released a statement stating how the comment was the result of the editing process.

“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,” Julianne said. “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.”
