‘The Masked Singer’ Judges Storm Off Stage After Shocking Celebrity Reveal!
Spoiler alert! We already know one masked contestant who is going to be unmasked this season, so read on at your own peril (or you may have already heard since it was trending everywhere).
The controversial guest was none other than former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, who has also served as former President Donald Trump’s legal attorney. After he was revealed as a contestant on the upcoming season, Thicke and Jeong reportedly both stormed off set in protest. Judges Jenny McCarthy and Nicole Scherzinger reportedly stayed behind to “banter” with Giuliani.
An inside source told People that only Jeong was upset, and Thicke merely left to check on his friend. “Ken was super upset and indeed stormed out,” the source said. “Robin actually followed him because he and Ken are very close friends and he wanted to check on him. Robin didn’t storm out because of Giuliani.”
Another source said that Ken felt “disrespected” by having Giuliani cast in the show. “Ken felt disrespected and was livid to see Rudy was under the mask which is why he walked off. There’s no way he could hide his feelings,” the insider claimed.
“Ken has been incredibly vocal about how the previous administration handled many things but especially COVID-19 and has found a lot of what they’ve said not only wrong but dangerous,” the insider explained. “To get someone who helped to spread misinformation and call into question the accuracy of our election and democracy to appear on his show was going to set him off.”
Apparently, fans weren’t too happy that the producers would cast such a political figure, either. Hopefully, the not-too-shocking reveal will happen in the series premiere so fans can enjoy the rest of the season without worrying about when Giuliani is going to show up.
