ABC Bans Gay Dancing On ‘Dancing With The Stars’
The network reportedly won’t let two men dance together on an upcoming episode.
An openly gay singer,Who Is Fancy (yes, that is what he calls himself), is set to perform his new song, “Boys Like You,” with Ariana Grande and Meghan Trainor on the reality competition show’s November 23 episode. The song is about a man falling in love with another man, so the singer’s choreographer wanted to have two men dancing with each other in the performance. But TMZ reported that ABC wasn’t having it.
According to the site’s sources, a “DWTS” producer responded to the choreographer’s request via email: “Apologies all but this is a definitive no from the network.”
ABC reportedly said it would allow “near dancing,” such as the performance earlier this week in which pro dancers Alek Skarlatos and Carlos PenaVega basically toss each other around to Queen’s “We Will Rock You.”
