Karamo Brown may be the culture expert on Queer Eye, but he's really out-of-touch with one major facet of the zeitgeist. Despite being in the prime of his career with Queer Eye's popularity at its peak, Karamo has decided to compete on Dancing with the Stars, a destination for washed-up public figures and Palins.
Joining Karamo is Donald Trump's former Minister of Propaganda, ex-White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer. Spicy has been forgotten because he is sooooo two press secretaries ago, but he did immense damage to democracy, lying out his a** about Trump's inauguration crowd size on day one and defending the Muslim Ban. The guy who called concentration camps "Holocaust centers" and continues to fundraise for Trump's reelection now has the opportunity to tango for redemption (and a six-figure salary) and people are pissed.
"To treat Spicer, and his reason for notoriety, as a harmless joke is to whitewash the harm of what he did, which was to say things so absurdly false that he invited his political side to join him in denying their own eyeballs, to encourage people to believe that facts don’t matter if they hurt your team," James Poniewozik wrote in The New York Times.
