Amber Rose says she felt body-shamed by Julianne Hough

Amber Rose has always been a vocal advocate for body and sex positivity, and now she’s calling out Julianne Hough for allegedly body-shaming her on “Dancing with the Stars.”

Rose said on her “Loveline with Amber Rose” podcast on the network that she felt Hough was commenting on her curves on Monday’s episode. 

“It was a point in the dance where I had to lift my leg up and Maks dipped me and she said, ‘Oh, I’m uncomfortable,’ and I instantly, I felt, I did feel body-shamed because you know, all the beautiful, professional dancers that are on DWTS, 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,” she said. “For me and my body, my hips, my a**, my breasts made her feel uncomfortable.”

Hough hit back and told E! that her comment was taken out of context. 

“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 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.”
