The body shaming saga between Dancing With The Stars judge Julianne Hough and DWTS contestant Amber Rose has finally been resolved.
The pair addressed the feud during last night’s episode of the dancing competition. When asked for an update on their misunderstanding, Amber Rose said, “Like I said in the package, when you said that I felt very embarrassed and I felt like you weren’t talking about the dance. But if I misunderstood, then I apologize. I’m a very positive person, I don’t like to argue or bicker or make things weird.”
Hough followed up by saying, “I would like to say one thing also. The thing that I love so much about dance is that dance is a universal platform for people to express themselves – any person. Whether that is age or height, body shape, ethnicity, sexual orientation. It is something that people can express themselves to do. And for me, I am a huge supporter of that and that alone. As a judge on this show, I am here to solely judge you and everyone else in this competition for only the dancing. So I want you to know that.”
The pair eventually wound up hugging it out with Hough saying, “That is not who I am, and I’m sorry if that made you feel that way.”
While Amber and Julianne may have settled the score, fans were not pleased with the judge’s apology or lack thereof. Amber Rose quickly hopped on social media in defense of the two-time DWTS champ.
