It makes me sad all the way into the heart of this explosion of a man has chosen to withdraw. @umutsakarya I'm happy to have learned to know you. The reason why Umut pulling the plug is even more sad. To adults people attacking him and bully him in an all too dramatically with the threats of boycot and much else, is simply not acceptable. People have many opinions about this program and immerse themselves in it, is just wonderful. But to some adult people (thank god only a fraction) can't let it go over their heads if/when they see the few they do not like, I do not understand. The tone is hard - too hard. I'm even in this season's been called everything from the “Little pigs” (i.e. not the same as being gay, Jørgen Hansen) to have been written “Fuck of, dance-bøssesvin!”, on the roof and over the windows on my car. We do, it is all in the attempt to entertain the viewers. Not to piss some of. Hope with all my heart and we will come back to be a society that faces the thumbs up when we come across people/positions who are different than ourselves and our own, instead we use the middle finger. We must take care of each other. Kisses to you @jennabagge and kiss to all of you who live with in the program in the good tone. Your immersion in the program and around it, is to make it a great experience every year!!

At TV2 is underholdningsredaktør Thomas Richardt Strøbech 'really annoyed' that kendiskokken Umut Sakaya has withdrawn from 'dancing with the stars' on Thursday after negative comments on social media.
Conversely, he believes that TV2 do what you can to protect their participants from the negative attention.
- We have a department that advises on, that there will be a pressure on the attention - also on social media. But we can't guarantee that you will not be affected by it, says Thomas Richardt Strøbech to Ritzau.
He tells, that the production behind 'dancing with the stars' and TV2 is available to the performers to not have to read the commentary on social media.
- We monitor our commentary on 'dancing with the stars'channels and try to avoid 'hate speech' (hate speech, ed.) and the negative comments. But we can't control the whole internet, and being discussed 'dancing with the stars' in many places, says Thomas Richardt Strøbech.
