DANCING With The Stars host Tyra Banks was slammed for “ruining” the pop star’s iconic looks as fans bashed the tribute episode as “disrespectful.”
Monday night’s episode of the ABC dancing competition was dedicated to the beloved music legend with each contestants performing to one of Britney’s songs.
The supermodel decided to pay homage to the Princess of Pop by recreating two of her most famous looks.
At the top of the show, Tyra, 47, strutted from behind stage in the outfit that made Britney a household name – her Baby One More Time ensemble.
Tyra rocked a black skirt, white button-down that was tied out front and two pigtail breads just like the Grammy winner did with her music video in 1998.
Later on in the episode, the America’s Next Top Model host paid tribute to Britney with a recreation of her sexy Slave 4 U look at the 2001 MTV VMAs.
Although Britney famously wore a banana python around her neck like a scarf, Tyra opted for a more subtle nod to the reptile.
She stunned in a skintight emerald green dress with a sheer corset and a silver bedazzled snake slithering across her torso.
Fans were furious that Tyra put in “half a** effort” and some even accused her of “ruining” the outfits.
“Sooo Tyra wanted to just halfass the Britney outfit huh? Not very tributey and respectful on this dumbass Britney nite. Not that I mind lol,” one person tweeted.
Another said: “Tyra is just not pulling off this Britney look at all.”
While a third wrote: “Tyra you are ruining britney boo.”
One more echoed that sentiment: “Tyra Banks just ruined Britney’s ICONIC look tf?!”
“Tyra: the one thing that could ruin britney night,” a third exclaimed.
