Dancing With The Stars hasn’t seen a contestant quite like Amber Rose in its many seasons.

The model recently spoke out about being body shamed by judge Julianne Hough after she critiqued her performance of the salsa with pro partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy on Monday. On the latest episode of the Loveline with Amber Rose podcast, Muva said, “It was a point in the dance where I had to lift my leg up and Maks dipped me and [Julianne] said, ‘Oh, I’m uncomfortable,’ and I instantly, I felt, I did feel body-shamed.”

The How To Be A Bad Bitch author continued, “You know, all the beautiful professional dancers that are on Dancing With the Stars, I mean they dress very sexy and they do splits and they grind up on these guys and they look absolutely stunning and they get a standing ovation. And for me, and my body, my hips, my ass, my breasts, made her uncomfortable.”

But the veteran judge defended her comments, telling 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.”

Hough added, “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.”  

Amber’s partner Maksim defended the star in an Instagram post, writing, “I’m team Amber Rose.”

Amber Rose’s annual SlutWalk is set to take place in Los Angeles this Saturday, October 1st.
