"I did feel body shamed," said the season 23 contestant after her 'DWTS' performance with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

Amber Rose, a current contestant on Dancing with the Stars, isn't thrilled with one of the show's judges.

On her latest podcast, "Loveline with Amber Rose," the model and talk show host called out Julianne Hough for body shaming her after her salsa performance to Jennifer Lopez's "Booty" with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. 

"Last night was like, they did the commentary, and it was a point in the dance where I had to lift my leg up and Maks dipped me and [Julianne] said, 'Oh, I'm uncomfortable,' and instantly I felt, I did feel body shamed," said Rose.

"You know, all the beautiful professional dancers that are on Dancing With the Stars, I mean, they dress very sexy and they do the splits and they grind up on these guys and they look absolutely stunning and get a standing ovation," she continued. "And me, and my body, my hips, my ass, my breasts made her uncomfortable."

After her performance, Rose tweeted, "Uncomfortable or not I had a blast and tried my best last night on @DancingABC and I respect @juliannehough as a judge. #slutwalk."

But Hough says her comments were never intended to body shame anyone.

"To be clear, that was a produced package, not live coverage and they can put those sound bites anywhere," Hough told E! News. "My 'uncomfortable' comment was about the fact that I felt like I wanted more out of the performance — when someone is doing a hot, sexy dance like that without the right amount of energy that is required, it can be uncomfortable to watch."

She added: "Trust me I'm ALL for a sexy booty dance!! We all know that!! And any kind of body shaming goes against everything I believe in."
