LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Maksim Chmerkovskiy isn’t the only one angry at the judges of “Dancing with the Stars.”
Superstar entertainer Cher also is getting on their case.
(SPOILER – this story contains details of Tuesday’s “DWTS” elimination)
After an angry confessional camera featuring Cher’s son, Chaz Bono, blasting Bruno Tonioli for comparing him to a penguin — and previously an Ewok – aired on Tuesday’s show (the confessional was taped Monday night), Cher leapt to her eliminated son’s defense.
“Going Home is Fine but why insult him b4 he Goes! Maybe Rudeness & Flapping Arms take the place of TALENT,” Cher wrote, clearly singling out Bruno.
“As for the Older Gentleman ….every Show Needs A Grumpy Old Man !” she added.
Carrie Ann Inaba, however, escaped Cher’s criticisms, as she was moved each week by Chaz’s journey.
“Thank u Carrie Ann 4 your Gentility u r beautiful inside & out,” Cher wrote.
“The Chick is beautiful & Polite ! The Men suck,” Cher added later.
Chaz and partner Lacey Schwimmer were eliminated on Tuesday’s “DWTS.”
