Ken Jeong and Robin Thicke apparently walked off the MASKED SINGER set in disgust when Rudy Giuliani was unmasked during his taped appearance last week in the first episode of the hit show’s newest season, multiple reports say!
Deadline broke the story saying the two judges left the stage to protest Giuliani’s inclusion after the his reveal as a contestant on the show — although they later returned. The remaining two judges, Jenny McCarthy and Nicole Scherzinger, apparently stayed onstage and chatted with the man who upheld the former president’s false claim that the 2020 election was stolen.
Fox did not comment on the incident. Spokespeople for Jeong and Thicke did not immediately return requests for a statement.
Giuliani’s The Masked Singer appearance is not the first to spark controversy on the singing talent show. In 2020, former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin appeared as the Bear. Her reveal drew criticism from fans of the show. The Giuliani episode is expected to air next month.
