SELECT fans of DWTS have boycotted the show over Tyra Banks and asked others to do the same unless the host is fired.
Fans have taken to Twitter to demand the model be removed from the Disney+ series amid much frustration with the job she’s done thus far.
Many viewers have said they’re boycotting the show until the network removes her from the show.
On Thursday, Twitter was flooded with unhappy fans slamming the host and urging other viewers to ditch the competition series.
“Tyra needs to be released as host [on] DWTS. She ruins the show!!!!” one user tweeted.
Another tweeted: “Tyra banks sucked as a daytime TV host with her own show. What made people think she could host/cohost another?”
Someone else wrote: “I stopped watching DWTS when they took Tom [Bergeron] & Erin [Andrews] off as hosts. Tyra is all about Tyra. Can’t stand her. She ruined my fav show !”
One viewer wrote, “Get Tyra off this show. I cannot stand her and she’s an awful host,” to which someone else replied: “YES PLEASE GET TYRA OFF THE SHOW !!! I do not watch DWTS because of her. She’s all about herself & she is full of herself!!”
Finally, another unhappy fan wrote: “stopped watching for one reason… @tyrabanks, tired of her making it about her, she’s a terrible host & her outfits are obnoxious & over the top! Do yourselves a favor & all of us, find a new host!”

While much of the displeasure has been about what Tyra has done on DWTS, some fans are upset about past discrepancies.
“I love Tyra banks. It’s not about the show that Tyra on right now it’s what she did on her own show the Tyra Banks show also the top modeling show. She was very narcissistic cruel rude calling people fat on her show,” one Twitter user noted.
Tyra, as well as co-host Alfonso Ribeiro, recently faced backlash for some on-screen behavior.
The duo falsely told viewers during a Tuesday episode of the show that one of the frontrunners had gotten the highest score of the season so far.
They forgot about another major star who was forced to drop out of the competition, but fans did not.
After tearing up the dance floor, the reality TV personality and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy received a score of 10 from all four judges.
Host Alfonso told the pair following the judge’s scores: “40 out of 40, the first perfect score in the competition!”
However, fans quickly pointed out that on Monday night’s episode, Selma Blair and her partner Sasha Farber had received a perfect set of 10s before she had to drop out of the competition due to health concerns.
One viewer tweeted: “So the hosts just kind of forgot that Selma had the first perfect score of the competition eh?”
“But it was not the first perfect score and Alfonso shouldn’t have said that. Selma got the first deserved perfect,” another wrote.
Tyra made a similar comment tonight to fellow contestant Charli D’Amelio, 18, and her professional partner Mark Ballas which also landed her in hot water.
After the duo had performed a contemporary dance on Monday to When The Party’s Over by Lewis Capaldi, they received a near-perfect score of 39 out of 40.
On Tuesday’s episode, as Tyra, 48, introduced the TikTok sensation before her dance, she told viewers: “We have got our social media megastar who earned the first 10s and the highest score of the season last night.”
But, like Alfonso, fans called out the host on social media for making the glaring error.
On Twitter, one pointed out: “Charli didn’t get the highest score of the season Tyra.
“It was less than 24 hours ago, how did you forget Selma and Sasha getting a perfect score?”
Another raged: “Selma got the highest score, Tyra.”
Although Selma did achieve a 40 out of 40, her score didn’t count toward the competition because she was forced to withdraw moments later due to health concerns.
Tyra was previously ripped for a Kardashian-related flub she made on air.
During an episode, she was called out after mistakenly calling Kourtney Kardashian’s stepson – who is dating Charli – “Logan,” rather than Landon.
She made the same blunder a week earlier.
While trying to apologize for the mixup, the former model made the exact same gaffe.
After TikTok star Charli performed, Tyra said: “I called your boyfriend Landon Barker and his name is Logan.”
Tyra went on, “I am so…” before stopping as Charli and her pro partner Mark Ballas motioned that she had got the names reversed.
She yelped: “Okay, I just said it backwards again. What is wrong with me with this? Why can’t I get this right?
“They said it in my ear last week, I got it wrong. Now that I’m reading it and I’m getting it wrong.”
The camera panned to Landon sitting in the audience and laughing at being called “Logan” again.
Tyra said to him: “Hello, Landon, I am so sorry. Your woman did so well tonight.
“That is what live TV is, it is lots of mistakes. We keep it real because it’s live. I apologize again.”
“All good,” Charli told her.
