Some fans think “Dancing With the Stars” judge Len Goodman will not be returning for season 31 of the show as between-season changes continue to be announced. The speculation comes after Goodman was criticized for making comments some people thought were racist during a live broadcast. During a part of the BBC broadcast of Queen Elizabeth’s platinum jubilee celebration, Goodman was asked about whether or not he was a good cook.
“No, I’m hopeless, honestly,” Goodman said. “My wife did coronation chicken yesterday for tea and I’ve never had it before. I’ve never had — you know, curry and curry powder. No. My nan used to call it all ‘foreign muck,’ so I was worried about it. But I must say, it was delicious, so tasty. So yeah, I had my first sampling of coronation chicken yesterday.”
Some fans thought the comment was racist, and the host later apologized for Goodman’s remarks. A post shared by Dancing With The Stars #DWTS (@dancingwiththestars)
“Dancing With the Stars” is heading to Disney+ after over 30 seasons on ABC, and some think that the move will come with substantial budget cuts for the program.
