When Chaz Bono was cast on this seasons ‘Dancing with the Stars’ there was no telling what the public reaction was going to be to his appearance on the show and unfortunately it hasn’t all been positive.
Bono’s pro dancing partner, Lacey Schwimmer says that she is disappointed in some of the reactions from the fans criticizing the show for casting him. Schwimmer explains;
“It’s disappointing. No human is perfect, so why are they pointing out what they perceive to be an imperfection in someone else? It’s not cool. We’re all taught to not bully, or harass, and treat everyone as equals yet all these people are doing exactly the opposite. I was absolutely thrilled. I’ve always been a huge supporter of the LGBT community and I couldn’t be more excited to have Chaz. Not only is he Sonny & Cher’s child but he’s also a generally cool person.”
So how is Chaz doing in dance rehearsals so far? Lacey says; “He’s picking up choreography very easily, but his stamina was very low. So we’ve been putting him through drills that will make him stronger in the competition. It’s all about him being able to breathe and get through a full dance.”
