DWTS fans slam Wayne Brady’s comment about competitors


Some Dancing With the Stars fans are upset that contestant Wayne Brady jumped into the comments section of an Instagram post on the official Dancing With the Stars account.

Here’s what you need to know:

Wayne Brady called Heidi D’Amelio a “trained dancer” and fans thought he was throwing shade

On Reddit, a fan posted a screenshot of some since-deleted Instagram comments where one commenter wrote that Heidi D’Amelio “didn’t deserve to go home, how sad.”

One response to this comment was, “Agree. Unpopular opinion, but I thought she technically danced better than Wayne [Brady]Daniel [Durant] and Trevor [Donovan] usually. She just had trouble bringing out emotion and personality.”

Brady responded to that comment in a now-deleted comment, “Nobody disagrees with you or ever said she wasn’t technically better at dancing. She’s a trained dancer, so” and the rest of the comment is cut off.

In the Reddit thread, some fans believe that Brady threw Shade at D’Amelio.

“Wayne baby you’ve done several Broadway shows lol. Of all the people he could say that about, he uses it against the 50 year old mom who hasn’t danced in 30 years boy stop it lol. wrote a commenter.

Other wrote, “That’s just… not a good look from Wayne. He should have just left it alone and said nothing. I understand he wanted to respond to an attack/criticism when he did that, but that wasn’t the right way.”

A third echoed this sentiment, Write, “Wow, that doesn’t look good. I don’t think he should have commented at all, seemed unnecessary.”

“Yeah, Wayne could have said that about Gabby [Windey] or Charlie [D’Amelio] and it wouldn’t be nearly as bad, but getting mad at a 50-year-old mother who isn’t in the entertainment industry probably last danced 30 years ago when you were on Broadway beyond lousy.” wrote a fourth fan.

A fan called this “The last straw,” says they “left too many of [Brady’s] little moments and poise pass” and they won’t choose him anymore.

Another viewer commented on this answered, “Same thing. I was excited when he was announced and wanted him to win, but from week one I was immediately put off by his ego. I loved him on Whose Line but he comes off like an idiot here over and that’s disappointing and it’s only going to get worse. I’d be totally fine with Trevor or Daniel taking his place in the finals now.”

Another fan added“Wait. Wayne Brady isn’t a trained dancer and performer? He’s been appearing on Broadway and television for years! Heidi is basically a soccer mom at this point, even though she had dance training before having kids. That’s just a Kick for Heidi while she’s down.”

“Okay, officially no longer a Wayne fan. He probably has the most entertaining and camera experience of anyone this season. So that he casts shadows like that, especially on a eliminated candidate, that’s just mean.” wrote another viewer.

Some fans pointed out that he might agree with the commenters who liked Heidi D’Amelio

Some of the fans on Reddit think the now-deleted comment was taken out of context, mostly because you can’t see the rest of the screenshot.

A fan pointed out that part of his message, which you can see above, seems to read: “She’s a trained dancer, so you’re right. Thanks for” and the rest is completely cut off. We agree that the words look like this
they say, and that person thinks he probably said, “Thank you for watching the show or caring about the show so much.”

One commenter compared this to when host Tom Bergeron told season 24 contestant Simone Biles he was “waiting for her to smile at some of the compliments.” to which she shrugged and replied“Smiling doesn’t get you gold medals.”

This commenter wrote, “So it’s not as terrible as people make it out to be? This makes me so angry! People who took Simone’s “smiling doesn’t win medals” comment out of context and called her arrogant and overbearing have been labeled racists. Why are people allowed to get away with doing this to Wayne? … He admits that Heidi is a better technical dancer and that she has had some training, and then the comment is cut off. So none of us know what else he said.”

Several fans defend Brady, saying he seems to agree with the fan who thought D’Amelio was a better technical dancer than him.

“I don’t understand what people are upset about. He only understands exactly what she said about herself in her package. As well as emphasizing her strengths—things she didn’t talk about but he wanted to highlight.” wrote one fan, to the other answered, “And he said nobody contradicts her. It sounds like Wayne would agree that Heidi danced better, but he surpassed her.”

However, some fans find it strange that the comment was deleted.

But either way, the Dancing With the Stars season 31 semifinals will take place on Monday, November 14th. The final six dancers are Brady, Donovan, Durant, Windey, Heidi’s daughter Charli D’Amelio and Shangela. There will be a double elimination before four dancers are sent to the final on November 21st.

Dancing With the Stars airs Mondays at 8 p.m. Eastern Time and 5 p.m. Pacific Time on Disney Plus.
