Lacey Schwimmer And Chaz Bono Defend Maks' Fiery Response To The DWTS Judges!

| Filed under: Chaz BonoReality TV

It seems like everyone's true feelings are finally coming out, and it's not lookin' good for the judges!

In the last episode, Maks went off when the judges continued to–what he feels–berate the dancers more so than their job requires (watch above).

And apparently he isn't the only one who feels that way!

Chaz Bono and Lacey Schwimmer explain:

Lacey: A lot of us wish we would say stuff and we never do — we're afraid of it. Regardless of what Maks said, and if he hurt people's feelings, he had the courage to stand up for him and his partner, and I think that is amazing. It's hard to hear your friend bullied by three people who we're supposed to respect. It's unnecessary and rude, especially with all the bullying going on in the world. I'm not going to speak poorly of the [judges'] profession or what they have done in their careers, but they have no business saying the things that they do.

Chaz: It's a bit insulting. One judge in particular week after week paints me as this… I don't know… chubby, cuddly little Ewok, little penguin. That's not about my dancing. If you want to talk to me about my dancing and how I can improve, I have no problem with that. That would be fine!

Interesting thoughts here! We wonder if any of the other contestants have the balls to stand up and speak their mind too — pro or con!

What about U? Do U think Maks stepped out of line or do the judges really dig a little too deep??

    Chaz I agree.. Bruno is being mean and it doesn't even make sense.



  2. 2

    theyre judges….i may be going out on a limb here but i always thought their job was to judge



  3. 3

    They have to include and compete with the Simon (Legree) Cowell factor like all the competition shows feel they must.
    .
    The public demands it.

    Maks….I love him. I'm glad he stood up for his dance partner.



  5. 5

    I understand what Chaz and Lacey are saying, but Maks and Hope's dance was not good at all, it was DEFINITELY her worst..so I agree with Len.

    I find it funny that perez is saying the judges comments against chaz were too far, obviously because hes transgendered, yet the judges opinions on everyone else are fine, no matter how ridiculous or rude? theres such thing as being homophobic and there is such thing as being heterophobic, which perez is being with this situation. Im all for gays and their rights, im in no way homophobic, i love gay people, but it just comes off as a little biased that its OKAY to say chaz's critique was wrong. i commend maks for standing up for his partner who obviously worked hard, but this is not a dancing competition like kristin cavallari said, its a popularity whoring competition so it doesnt even matter what the judges think…

    That was a horrible performance, she was so stiff with her movements. I'm not a professional, definitely far from it, but I know if something looks right or not, and that definitely did not. They're job is to judge, and thats what they were doing. He was totally out of line with his "maybe its time to get out" comment.
    Chaz's comment on the other hand, I completely agree with.

    Bullied? How pathetic!!

    youre PAID to be on the show and you cant take criticism? Just get the fuck out you weak little twats! You should be grateful for the work!

    f the pros cant then they are in the wrong profession. they are in a "competition" and will be getting judged. its just so funny how maks bullies his pros in rehearsals on a daily basis, yet he dont like being judged. lets face it, his partner just isnt the best dancer and it really showed. as for lacey and chaz, they have to know how bad chaz is and its at the point the judges have nothing more to say. just like bristol palin and cloris leachman before him, he is simply there as a RATINGS STUNT!
