Amber Rose claims Julianne Hough body-shamed her on Dancing With The Stars.

Amber Rose has called out Julianne Hough claiming the judge body-shamed her on the US version of Dancing With The Stars.

In a preview of the next episode of her podcast Loveline With Amber Rose, she says Julianne’s reaction to one of her moves on the dancing contest felt like she was criticising her shape.

“It was a point in the dance where I had to lift my leg up and Maks [Amber’s partner Maks Chmerkovskiy] dipped me and she said, “Oh, I'm uncomfortable”, and instantly I felt, I did feel body shamed,” she explains.

“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."

Julianne has since responded to Amber’s claim, telling E News! that her comment was part of a pre-recorded package and not during a live performance, and the producers often move sound bites around.

“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."

That does sound like a fair explanation. Amber is yet to respond.
