The dance has come to an end for Dancing With the Stars (DWTS) hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews, not due to ratings, or lack of talent, but because they’re white.
ABC posted on Twitter that AFTER 29-years DWTS is looking to “embark on a new creative direction.” ABC must have ran out of characters because they forgot to add ‘AND MORE COLORFUL‘.
Of course, as everyone knows that after an almost three decade long run, it’s the perfect time to ‘Change Direction’.
When “Dancing With the Stars” returns to the airwaves in the fall, the host will have a lot more color than that old white supremacist Tom Bergeron who broke the news on Twitter.
Just informed @DancingABC will be continuing without me. It's been an incredible 15 year run and the most unexpected gift of my career. I'm grateful for that and for the lifelong friendships made. That said, now what am I supposed to do with all of these glitter masks?

So I guess ABC decided that instead of getting two slices of white bread, you’ll get one slice of Pumpernickel, well, not exactly Pumpernickel, more like white bread that’s been toasted a little.
Of course, this means that if the DWTS ratings falter even more than they have over the years. Liberals can then claim ‘Once DWTS brought on a person of color to host, America showed it’s true racist nature when viewers took their Tiki Torches and went home’.
DWTS’ Liberal Logic
Hysterically, dancing with the B-list Stars co-executive producer Deena Katz stated her reasons DWTS is becoming more colorful:
“We felt it was important to have a very relevant cast, to feel like people that we’re talking about now”
Relevant? Did she say Relevant? When, if ever, was Tyra Banks relevant?
First off Tyra Banks is ALMOST 50, so it’s not like she’ll be bringing in those young viewers.
Secondly, Tyra Banks became famous for being the first woman on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and the first African-American woman on the cover of GQ.
Unfortunately for DWTS, that was when the world was still using “19” as the first two numerals when writing out the year.
Tom ‘Whitey’ Bergeron Showed He Isn’t The Least Bit Upset About Being Fired
The former DWST host who was kicked to the white patriarchy curb, had a field day after seeing Tyra Banks’ new promotional image for the upcoming season of “Dancing with the Stars.”
Bergeron reenacted the photo on Twitter by holding up a real mirror ball trophy to his mouth.
“This Just In: National Association of Lip Safety cautions against applying multiple small mirrors on the mouth,” the former host joked.
He added: “One bad chew and it’s 7 years of bad luck.”

This isn’t the first time Bergeron has poked fun at DWTS since he got ‘cancel cultured’ due to his alabaster skin tone.
The former host changed his Twitter bio to read “Former Co-Host of ‘Footwork With the Famous'” as a dig to his former ABC employers.
Umm, wouldn’t that be… ‘Fictionally‘ famous’?
