DWTS host Tyra Banks RIPPED for 'stupid' comments about Suni Lee's gymnastics as fans insist model 'never stops talking'

DWTS host Tyra Banks was RIPPED for making “stupid” comments about Suni Lee's gymnastics career as fans insist the model “never stops talking.” 

The supermodel stumbled over her words when she attempted to discuss the gold medalist’s difficult sport which viewers felt she knew “nothing” about in an awkward post-performance interview. 

Suni, 18, danced to a Foxtrot on tonight’s “redemption” episode with her partner, Sasha Faber. 

Ahead of getting their scores, Tyra, 47, interviewed the pair about their preparation leading up to tonight’s semi-finals. 

Attempting to ask about her Gymnastics, the America’s Next Top Model host said: “So you’re gymnastics is like…

“You know that’s tough. Gymnastics and all that tumbling and you know, whatever else goes on in gymnastics.”

The controversial fashion icon appeared to try to continue with another question but seemed to talk over herself and quickly changed the subject to the scores. 

Fans slammed the TV personality for trying to talk about a topic she "knows nothing about."

One person tweeted: "Tyra, general rule of thumb is if you don’t know what you’re talking about, keep your mouth shut!"

Another wrote: "Tyra trying to explain gymnastics is so cringe," alongside a crying face.

A third bluntly put it: "Tyra actually never shuts the f**k up."

While a fourth added: "Tyra and her stupid questions… #mute. @DancingABC #MuteTyra!"

After Tyra's perplexing interview, judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Derek Hough gave the Olympian their feedback.

Carrie Ann gushed that her dance and spirit is "full of joy, full of potential and full of confidence."

While professional ballroom expert Len said her frame was "terrific in hold," but got a laugh from Tyra when he said her footwork was a little “suspect.”

Derek praised that he is “loving Suni 2.0,” who is having "so much more fun" now than she was at the beginning of the season when she was "so nervous."

The duo scored a 37 out of 40, with Carrie Ann handing out the only "10" of the performance while the trio of men gave Suni 9's each.

Tonight's episode wasn't the first time the mom-of-one got in hot water with fans due to her comments towards Suni.

In an episode which aired two weeks ago, the gymnast nearly couldn't perform as she was very sick.

The Olympic gymnast rushed off stage soon after dancing, as Tyra shared with the audience she was "vomiting" – which many thought was "embarrassing" and "unnecessary" information to share.
