Chaz Bono voted off DWTS

Chaz Bono voted off DWTS
(BANG) -Chaz Bono was voted off 'Dancing with the Stars' last night (25.10.11). The transgender son of pop legend Cher and his professional dance partner Lacey Schwimmer left the show after coming in at the bottom of the leaderboard when they failed to wow with their tango to the theme song from 'Phantom of the Opera' on Monday (24.10.11).

Chaz - who found himself and Lacey in the bottom two with Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy -was disappointed with the judges' comments on his performances, including Bruno Tonioli comparing him to a cute, fluffy penguin while his partner claimed the people of "middle America" don't know anything about ballroom dancing and so are too heavily influenced by the panel in deciding who to vote for.

He said: "We were upset, not with the scores but with the comments toward me personally. We thought we did a good job [last night]."

Lacey said: "For Middle America who knows nothing about ballroom dancing, they look at these three judges and think they know everything there is to know about ballroom dancing. And when they make comments like that, it does influence how people will vote or support or view the show.

"The judges always have a favorite or two. We are just not that couple this season."

Meanwhile, Chaz's mother Cher took to her twitter page to blast the results and the male judges Len Goodman and Bruno, although she did have some praise for Carrie Ann Inaba.

She wrote: "I Have Got 2Hold my TEMPER ! MY Tears R OK ! Congratulations Chaz I'm SO PROUD OF U ! This was YOUR Quest...& u Followed your Star

"Thank u Carrie Ann 4 your Gentility u r beautiful inside & out ! To the Gentleman?I didn't know who u

"We're b4 which I guess is a blessing ! Going Home is Fine but why insult him b4 he Goes! Maybe Rudeness & Flapping Arms take the place of TALENT ! As for the Older Gentleman ....every Show Needs A Grumpy Old Man !

"Sorry my Tweets came out of Sequence ! But u can figure it out if u try!Condensed version ...The Chick is beautiful & Polite ! The Men suck (sic)"

    Bravo to Chaz & Cher!! For following his dream & not giving up!! To Cher for standing behind & supporting her son & speaking the truth.. Those 2 men are considered in todays society Bullies!! Now we know why the younger generations act the way they do!!

    Is this what we consider to be ROLE MODELS? For the next Generation?? Shame on you both for your rude & arrogant comments to a talented duo!!

    The male judges have been getting away with comments like this for years. It's as though we forgot that is who they are and makes the show interesting.

    I have to commend anyone that tries on DWTS! However I was greatly pulling for Chaz having seen him since a baby and imagining what he has been through. The flack that was given just because he was going to be on the show was disgusting, but to see him work so hard and improve in many ways was heartening. I will miss him and Lacey and believe this is just another brick in his steps foreward.

    I have been a big fan of Cher since the Sonny days. She has shown what a true lady does many times in her life, but perhaps never as much as in the support of her son.

    As to the judges; that's no doubt what they are paid to do a low-life as it is. I seem to recall everyone fawning over another big mouth. Think his name is "Simon"...

    I have nothing against Chaz Bono, and I am glad he followed his dream, but his dancing was poor. Judges behavior was uncaled for I agree with that.
