Chaz Moves on in DWTS, Tells Fox No Interviews

Last night Chaz Bono, who heated up the dance floor with a cha-cha on Monday’s season opener of Dancing With The Stars, made it through the first elimination, and will dance again next week.

While Chaz’s victory–and the repeal of DADT–sent a strong message to LGBTphobes, Chaz’s reaction to Fox News was especially cheer-worthy.  Fox News had published transphobic frother Dr. Keith Ablow’s rant urging parents to boycott DWTS advising

parents to not allow their children to watch the episodes in which Chaz appears.

On last Saturday’s Creative Arts Emmy red carpet, Fox wanted an interview with Chaz.  Chaz’s media adviser Howard Bragman relates:

When Chaz was on the red carpet at the Emmys last Saturday Fox asked for an interview. I said that since a Fox person [Dr. Ablow] recommended boycotting Chaz, we are boycotting Fox.
