Matt James may have danced his way into a double elimination, but he still has bit more to say and is rooting for Kenya Moore.
He talked about this in a recent interview with E! News Daily Pop.
On his exit, he said, “Nothing ever really catches me off guard anymore. Someone’s gotta go home every week, so I’m hoping that Kenya [Moore] and Brandon [Armstrong] freakin’ ride out, you know?”
Matt James and his partner Lindsay Arnold were tied with Brian Austin Green and Sharna Burgess. Moore and Armstrong were in the bottom as well, but were saved. However, due to the rules of Dancing With The Stars, there can be no tie. When the judges failed to make a definitive choice, the lead judge sent both duos home.
Moore has received positive reviews from the judges each week yet manages to be on the chopping block each week. This has caused many social media users and viewers of the show to have cause for concern citing racism as the cause while noting a black duo hasn’t worn the competition.
Fans have been upset.
As we reported last week, one user wrote, They’re really judging Kenya more harshly than these other rhythmless folks on this show, and I’m not here for it.”
“The way #DWTS is underscoring Kenya Moore… this is a civil rights issue,” stated another fan. “Did you see how they praised Kenya, then gave her 7’s smh. I’m just about done with #DWTS bad enough I have to deal with Ms.Tyra, but the judges tonight got me piss off,” added another.
Someone else said, “The only reason a black woman has won the show before is because of their partner being Derek Hough, I fear it will never happen again & especially since the pro is black as well VOTE KENYA she can’t go out anytime SOON! #dwts” tweeted a fan of the show.”
