October 26, 2011 by staff
Chaz Bono Elimination, Chaz Bono and Lacey Schwimmer were eliminated from Dancing with the Stars last night, and despite the “disrespectful” comments from the judges, Bono says he is not leaving the show “bitter or angry.”
In the program on Monday night, the duo received the lowest score of 19 and Judge Bruno Tonioli described Bono as “a little penguin trying to be a large bird of prey threatening.” Tonioli was also compared to an Ewok Bono. During an interview today on Good Morning America, Bono revealed how he was upset with the commments.
“I have lots of references to him [Tonioli] about things that indicate the fact that I have overweight, you know, a round,” said Bono. “They called me a basketball, a penguin, an Ewok, and I just do not appreciate. If you want to criticize my dance and gives me some constructive advice so you can try to improve the next time I’m there, that would be great. But not really know how to be less penguish, so I kind of took offense to that. ”
Bono selection to compete in the ABC series was also criticized by conservatives, but Bono says he found the negative comments to be a motivating factor to work harder. In general, participation in the series was seen as a unifying moment for the LGBT community, who organized viewing parties and encouraged to vote. Bono was widely commended for promoting the visibility of transgender people.
Acting President Mike Thompson summarizes GLAAD impact Bono in a statement released to the media: “Chaz courage to put their dancing shoes and became a fan favorite, showing millions of viewers is like any other . While it is sad to see him go, Chaz has helped countless people understand better what it means to be transgender. He should be commended for both his courage and determination. We hope that Chaz time on Dancing with the Stars is just the beginning a long list of transgender-inclusive programming through the media. “
