Fans of “The Masked Singer” better gear up for a MAJOR spoiler!
Apparently, a major controversial figure was cast as a performer on Fox’s “The Masked Singer” game show, which is a musical guessing game competition that features celebrities hiding their identities in elaborate outfits while singing their hearts out on stage.
A panel consisting of Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy-Wahlberg, Ken Jeong, and Nicole Scherzinger have to try to place the voice to the correct celebrity identity with the help of clues provided along the way.
The show has been a hit for seven seasons now, with singer Jewel being crowned the season 6 winner and “American Idol” alum Todrick Hall as the runner-up. Although the show previously had controversial Republican politician Sarah Palin unmasked as The Bear after singing and trying to rap “Baby Got Back,” this next reveal forced two judges to walk off stage.
Ken Jeong & Robin Thicke Leave Stage After Controversial Unmasking
It seems Deadline got the exclusive scoop that none other than controversial figure Rudy Giuliani performed in the upcoming season 7 of “The Masked Singer,” which has yet to air. Although they won’t say which performer he is – so there are some surprises in store, after all! – Deadline reported that “judges Ken Jeong and Robin Thicke quickly left the stage in protest.”
Although they eventually returned, apparently fellow judges Jenny and Nicole stages on stage. According to Deadline, they “bantered” with Giuliani, although it was not said what they talked about.
As of Thursday morning, Jenny McCarthy started trending online, with many taking issue with her anti-vaxx stance.
Fans Blow Up At ‘The Masked Singer’ Controversy: ‘It’s Not Clever Or Funny… It’s Just Gross’
I see that Jenny McCarthy is trending. Very few people have done more to popularize the blatant lie that vaccines cause autism than she has. People have died because of what she’s said about vaccines.
And as her reward, she gets to be part of a prime time show.

Many fans were disgusted with Fox producers for making the show, which is touted as being lighthearted and fun, political and controversial.
“Good for the judges who walked off,” comedian Jenny Johnson commented. “Rudy Giuliani is a melting bag [of] s—. It’s not clever or funny to have him as a contestant. It’s just gross.”
“WTF! Horrendous judgement on the part of the producers,” another fan wrote. “Brave to Jeong and Thicke for making the exact right move!”
“These ‘rehab the evil’ aspects of shows, ruins it for me,” another shared. “There are people who deserve to be on these shows, who haven’t tried to destroy democracy, haven’t corruptly obstructed the peaceful transfer of power. This is why we have to break up monopolized media.”
Another posted a graphic reading, “I miss ten seconds ago when I didn’t know this thing existed.”
“This better not be true that Rudy Giuliani was on #TheMaskedSinger,” another fan wrote. “I will be soooo upset at the show that I love.” Another fan replied, “I won’t be able to watch it anymore.”
‘It Should Have Been A Mass Exit’
The weirdest things about this story are Robin Thicke taking a moral stance and the fact that Ken Jeong, an actual physician, manages to be nice to Jenny McCarthy, the poster child for the anti vax movement https://t.co/wMXYvw3QId

“My question is why didn’t the other judges leave the stage?” another asked. “It should have been a mass exit.”
“I don’t think people realize the seriousness of the charges against Rudy Giuliani,” another commented. “Who made the decision to ask him to do this? This is absurd!”
“I’m going to refuse to believe this,” another wrote. “It just cannot be.” Another fan replied, “Oh no. I must have died and this is h—.”
Another commented, “Unlike when has-been Sarah Palin appeared, Rudy is part of active criminal investigations as a party to a conspiracy to overthrow the govt as well as illegal lobbying for foreign interests, and some producer at Fox thought it ok to put him on this show? Or is it a PR stunt?”
I see Jenny McCarthy’s trending cause she was complicit with Rudy Giuliani but I’m happy to say I was blocked years ago when I questioned why a celebrity who is not a scientist was writing anti vaccination books. #TheMaskedSinger pic.twitter.com/3IxBeg4450

“It’s very inappropriate for Rudy Giuliani to be on tv after what he has done to this country,” said another. “I would like to know who made this decision?”
“The sheer number of people that were involved in meetings for months and signed off on this as a good idea makes my head spin,” another added.
It remains to be seen what is going to happen now. According to Deadline, Giuliani already performed and was unmasked, so it seems unlikely that they would pull his episode now.
Some fans are already calling for a boycott of the show’s seventh season, so if this was a PR stunt, it seems that “The Masked Singer” is now the #1 Most Polarizing Game Show on Television.
