‘Dancing With the Stars’ Cancels Chimp’s Appearance After PETA Protests

Oct 8, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Wondering what happened to that simian guest judge that “Dancing With the Stars” promoted Monday night for its Tuesday show? The stunt was quietly scrapped after a protest from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, Variety reports.

Host Tom Bergeron said on Monday’s show that the chimp would be there Tuesday but then the Tuesday show came and went with no appearance or mention.

Executive producer Conrad Green made the decision to edit out the chimp’s appearance after hearing from PETA.

  1. Well done PETA. Now get the BET Michael Vick 8 show glorification series cancelled.

  2. Good afternoon, I don’t agree with everything in this write-up, but you do make some very good points. I’m very interested in this matter and I myself do alot of research as well. Either way it was a well thoughtout and nice read so I figured I would leave you a comment.
