'Dancing with the Stars' season 27: Tinashe shuts down sexist troll with hilarious clapback
Things went down on Twitter ahead of Tinashe's latest DWTS performance, as she posed in her ensemble for the night which certain social media 'critics' found inappropriate for children.
Tinashe may have been dancing her way to the topmost scores on ABC's Dancing with the Stars season 27, but clearly, that's not the only thing she's a pro at. And no, we are not talking about her remarkable musical career in RnB either. Taking to Twitter, Tinashe just proved that yet another thing she can expertly perform is shutting up uncalled for sexist and rude comments, especially when it comes to her "Dancing With the Stars" looks.
Things were going all great for the young singer as she took to Twitter to share two photos of herself backstage - right before she earned a whopping 27 out of 30 from the judges for her most recent Rumba performance.
She captioned the photos with "feeling like a princess" as she smiled in her glitzy lilac ensemble. All decked up in a sheer bodice and flowing skirt with a thigh-high slit, Tinashe's looks might have been a tad bit revealing but it was barely the most revealing look that has been featured on the show's ongoing 27th season so far.
But of course - since when has rational reasoning ever stop self-proclaimed Twitter critics from making uncalled for remarks, right? Along the same lines, one such 'critic' felt the need to reply back to Tinashe's tweet, writing: "Please cover up your breast. They're gross and set a horrible example for little girls."
But Tinashe being Tinashe, was going to have none of that nonsense. Snubbing down the sexist remark, the singer clapped back, saying: "Please choke on an 18th century d*ck."
The said critic suddenly changed the conversation topic, replying back asking Tinashe if she "respects the troops," but the last word had been given and the case was already closed with Tinashe coming out victorious.
Sadly for Tinashhe, online trolls weren't the only thing proving to be a hassle for her on that night. Despite having earned back to back topmost scores on DWTS so far, the most recent Monday night episode saw her struggling at the bottom spot alongside Nancy McKeon. Ultimately, however, McKeon and her pro-partner Val Chmerkovskiy were eliminated, following which Tinashe took to Twitter to express her thanks to all the fans who voted, and also urged them to vote for her further on too.
"Tonight was so stressful," she tweeted. "Thank you to everyone who's voted for me this far to keep us around! I don't wanna go home yet."
