Matthew Morrison Fired: ‘So You Think You Dance’, Flirty Contestant

After his abrupt exit from So you think you can danceEx-Judge Matthew Morrison has addressed speculation that he had an inappropriate relationship with a Season 17 contestant.

In an Instagram video posted Thursday night, Morrison appears to be obliquely addressing a recent one persons Article in which an unnamed source claimed Morrison was fired from the Fox series for sending “flirty direct messages” to a competitor. After calling the allegations “manifestly false,” Morrison reads aloud “the one message” he allegedly sent to a candidate.

“‘Hey, this is Matthew. If you don’t mind I’d like to get your number and explain a few things to you.’ The end,” Morrison recites. “I sent this because this dancer and I both share a mutual respect for a choreographer I’ve known for over 20 years and I was trying to help her get a choreographer job on the show.

“It’s devastating that we live in this world where gossip rules and lives are thrown around as clickbait,” he continues. “I think that’s a lot bigger than me and this story. Gossip is toxic and destroys our society and we need to do better.”

Morrison confirmed his exit from the dance competition on May 27, just a week after making his debut as a judge on the season 17 premiere. Morrison said in a statement at the time: “I did not follow the competitions’ production protocols, which prevented me from judging the competition fairly.”

Morrison was part of a whole new one SYTYCD Jurying alongside former contestants Stephen “tWitch” Boss and JoJo Siwa for season 17, the show’s first season in three years. With the first few episodes of the season all pre-taped, Morrison will be seen until mid-June. A replacement for him on the jury is still in the works.

“I cannot apologize enough to everyone involved,” Morrison said in his statement last week, “and I will be with you all to watch what I believe will be one of the best seasons yet.” Matthew Morrison Fired: ‘So You Think You Dance’, Flirty Contestant
