Karamo Brown has deleted his Twitter after he was slammed for calling former Trump press secretary Sean Spicer a “good guy.”
Both Karamo, 38, and Sean, 47, are part of the upcoming 28th season of Dancing with the Stars along with other celebs like James Van Der Beek and Lamar Odom.
The Queer Eye star faced instant backlash online from fans who were “disappointed” in him for “lending his celebrity to this” after he was announced as a contestant.
“First, I have no say who is on the cast and didn’t find out till this morning that he is on!” he responded on Twitter. “But I’ll tell you this… I’m excited to sit down w/ him and engage in a respectful conversations.”
“Only way things get better is if we try to educate those who have different POV than us,” he added in the tweet.
Karamo made matters worse during an interview with Access Hollywood where he referred to Sean as a “really sweet guy” and a “good guy.”
The backlash was inevitable as fellow celebs and fans blasted the former Real World star for his words. “Get a f***ing grip,” author Roxane Gay tweeted at him. “There is no friendship with people who enable fascism.”
Karamo also blocked many Twitter users who came for him over the Spicer debacle before he ultimately took his page down.

His Instagram page, which boasts 2.5 million followers, still remains active however he has turned off comments for all of his posts he’s made thus far.
Sean, who was Trump’s press secretary from January to July 2017, has stayed quiet about the matter on social media but still has an Instagram photo of him with Karamo from the Good Morning America set alongside fellow contestants Hannah Brown, Lauren Alaina and Kate Flannery.
