Homophobia On So You Think You Can Dance!!!!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooTV NewsGay Gay GayLGBT


We don't watch this crappy ass show, but we've been getting A LOT of emails about some homophobic trash talk that went down on So You Think You Can Dance's premiere last night on Fox.

So we went to investigate.

Apparently, while the show was holding auditions in Denver, a pair of male Latin partner dancers, Misha Belfer and Mitchel Kibel, came to the show.

Two dudes dancing together????


This was a first for the show and they were decent dancers, even though they fell in their last moments. But they never stood a chance anyway! The judges were more concerned that they were a same-sex dancing couple than with their actual dancing.

Rocket scientist Mary Murphy didn't feel it worked because there was constant flip-flopping between the men and "Who led the dance?" Though she admitted it may add difficulty to the performance, she would have rather they taken the time to define themselves as one male partner and one female.

But it was Nigel Lythgoe who pulled the rug out from under these guys, who only one of was gay, by the way. He likened them to the Will Ferrell movie Blades of Glory and told them to try dancing with girls next time as they "might like it."

The disrespect continued when the judges agreed that their partnership would alienate audience members and ultimately, they did not put them through to the next round.


First of all, if homosexuality is the problem, then they would have no show. We all know that 90% of the male dancers are going home with another dude at the end of the night.

And, if they think a same-sex partner dancing team ALIENATES people, then they are not considering the homosexual community. By embracing this new art form, they might actually open thier show up to a whole new audience. And we can bet the show doesn't get half as much viewership as it could.

So ya'll just kind of fucked yourselves over! You could have made headlines.

Now, you'll just remain a crappy summer filler show!

Did U watch last night? What did U think?

    perez, there was a lesbian judge…i dont think it was homophobic.

    the two of them FELL on stage! it was more about the dancing rather than sexuality

    I don't think they were being homophobic at all..the judges just didn't send them home, they allowed them to do the choreography round & obviously they weren't the best dancer of the bunch. Plus I'm pretty sure that in all of the seasons they've had at least one gay contestant…wasn't Travis in the first season gay? And he made it to the finale! You're reading way to much into this

    I am a huge fan of the show, and I don't think this is true at all.
    They were just trying to point out that they got confused. There have been gay dancers AND every year the top two guys dance together, same for the girls. Also, their dancing wasn't the best either. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't terrible, but not good enough for Vegas.

    and soo damn confused too! What the hell? Dance is art! Everyone's accepted in art! wtf was going on in their mind??

    "a dance should be between a man and a woman. a dance isn't complete with the beauty of a woman." BULLSHIT!!

    Forget this stupid ass show.
    I was never into anyway, and now I'm DEFINITELY never going to watch it.

    They should have focused the criticism on the dance technique and not even mentioned or reacted that it was a same sex couple. Mary's comments should have referred to specifically "a leader and a follower" in the dance couple rather than suggesting that one "be the man and one be the girl". That implies that two people must be of opposite sex in order to dance together. It is this kind of obvious ignorance in the majority of America that leads to things like a ban on gay marriage. As if straight people take marriage so seriously.
