Chaz Bono, the most controversial contestant to date on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars, did a pretty good job for his first dance, but did you know there has been security protection ordered for Chaz? Read on for more…
That’s right! Apparently ABC thinks there are some “crazies” out to get Chaz Bono, thus why they ordered security protection for him during his gig on Dancing With The Stars! According to TMZ, sources close to the show stated: “there have not been any specific threats against Chaz, but the honchos know there’s an element of hatred out there and they feel it’s necessary to block Chaz from harm.”
Chaz Bono will not only get protection on site, but also off site for the remainder of his time on the show. While this may be the first time the show has seen a transgender contestant, it is certainly not the first time the network has exercised security measures. Bristol Palin was also given security protection during her time on the show, due to an Anthrax scare.
Do you think security protection for Chaz Bono is warranted? Comment and share your thoughts with us!
