Chaz Bono Sparks “Dancing with the Stars” Controversy
5:34 pm, August 30th, 2011
The announcement that Chaz Bono has joined “Dancing with the Stars” has sparked an online debate.
Bono, who was born a girl to Cher and Sonny Bono, is now a transgendered male, and right after being officially tapped for the competition show, ABC’s message board lit up with commenters strongly voicing their reactions — both positive and negative — to his participation, as well as being paired with a woman.
In just the past hour, one commenter wrote, “I have watched and really enjoyed Dancing with the Stars. But I am absolutely disgusted with your decision to place Chasity (Chaz) Bono as a celeberty dancer. I will not watch and I know my friends and their friends will not watch!!”
Another visitor offers support: “Let’s give him a chance and not judge.”
Where do you stand on the Chaz debate?
