In a post shared on Twitter, the host was seen reading a copy of Star Magazine that featured an article on the 'Dancing with the Stars: Shake-Up!" The tagline read, "Why Tom Bergeron was Really Fired."
By the look of his face, the former host seemed as surprised as we fans were by the news.
On July 14, ABC and BBC on their joint statement wrote, "Tom Bergeron will forever be part of the Dancing with the Stars family. As we embark on a new creative direction, he departs the show with our sincerest thanks and gratitude for his trademark wit and charm that helped make this show a success."
The statement further added, "Erin will also not be returning, and we appreciate all that she brought to the ballroom. Fans have been rooting for her since she originally competed as a contestant back in 2010, and her signature sense of humor has become a hallmark of the show."
Well, the statement really failed to address the 'why' part as it was done inadequately. So, it makes sense why the former host seemed so surprised on his picture.
