‘DWTS’ Host Erin Andrews Defends Reaction to Hannah Brown Win: ‘Give Me a Break’

November 27, 2019

Erin Andrews is staying silent about the negativity that she receieved following the “Dancing With the Stars" Season 28 finale.

The host specifically clapped back at haters who accused her of not supporting champion Hannah Brown.

The “Bachelorette” and her professional dance partner, Alan Bersten, took home the Mirror Ball Trophy on Monday’s episode.

But it was Andrews’ reaction to the results that got a ton of traction on social media.

According to People magazine, a camera panned to Andrews showing her emotionless facial expression after the winners of the ABC reality dance competition were revealed.

One Twitter user questioned, "Shouldn't she at least appear unbiased?

Another user went as far as to say it confirms Andrews’ “lack of respect for the winners.”

But Andrews answered the Twitter user who said she looked “less than impressed with the outcome.”

"Give me a break," Andrews fired back.

She explained her neutral stare by stating, "YOU CAN’T WIN IN THIS SITUATION. I’m standing next to the couple that just got second place. And if I had cheered, you’d be killing me for going against the Kel, Lauren, and Ally. Not that serious people!"

Some fans defended Andrews saying that she always “shows her love and support for EVERY contestant.”

Brown beat out three finalists: country singer Lauren Alaina (fourth place), former Fifth Harmony member Ally Brooke (third place) and Nickelodeon star Kel Mitchell, who was the runner-up.
