In response to GMA’s Lara Spencer mocking Prince George for taking ballet classes, hundreds of ballet dancers showed up outside the Good Morning America studio in Times Square to pirouette.
Even though the host has apologized on-air, saying she ‘screwed up’ and her comments were ‘stupid’ and ‘insensitive’ the hashtag #BoysDanceToo was trending. (We would add ‘sexist’ to the list.)
Lead by dancer Travis Wall, he spoke movingly about the bullying he endured as a young dance student.
Hundreds of ballet dancers performed outside the Good Morning America studio in Times Square to show support for Prince George after host Lara Spencer mocked the young royal for taking ballet lessons.
Watch and smile.
