Bruno Tonioli Slammed for Sexist Charlotte McKinney Critique: What Did He Say?

by at .


Charlotte McKinney was sent home on Dancing with the Stars last night.

But the model and partner Keo Motsepe only earned 22 total points for their Rumba, tied for lowest of the evening, making it difficult to argue with the results.

However, viewers are finding it very easy to take issue with the criticism leveled at McKinney by Bruno Tonioli after her routine.

"You’re never going to win the Nobel Prize for quantum physics, but you are easy on the eyes and you produce wonderful shapes," the judge told the Carl's Jr. commercial star, prompting a rebuke from his fellow panelists and a strong response from Tom Bergeron.

The host told Bruno that he'll never win the Nobel Prize, either.

But, still, the insulting damage had been done.

Numerous fans took to Twitter after the comment was made in order to slam Tonioli for a clearly sexist remark.

“#DWTS @BrunoTonioli you need to apologize to @Char_mck @keodancer. Women can be smart and beautiful! Shame on you,” wrote one user, while another added:

"Oh @BrunoTonioli such an ill advised "quantum physics" comment. Why didn't u really disrespect her & call her a dumb blond!Not nice."

We concur: not nice at all!

Do you think Tonioli should apologize? Was he out of line? Did McKinney deserve to be sent home last night? Ready... set... REACT!
