Tyra Banks is BLASTED on Twitter as fans react to her Dancing With The Stars host debut

Tyra Banks bravely made her debut as host of Dancing With The Stars on Monday evening during the show’s season 29 premiere.

And fans of the long-running celebrity competition series took to Twitter to ruthlessly BLAST the 46-year-old supermodel’s performance.

A majority of the tweets desperately begged for the return of veteran hosts Tom Bergeron, 65, and Erin Andrews, 42, who were shockingly canned in July.

Bergeron had been with the Dancing With The Stars franchise since it launched in 2005, while his former co-host Andrews joined the show in 2014.

In an interview with Extra earlier this month, Andrews revealed that her and Tom’s unexpected dismissals from Dancing With The Stars ‘was a surprise’ and that hers came via phone call.

Though there was never a direct reason given as to why the pair were axed, Valerie Bruce, general manager of LA Productions, stated that Dancing With The Stars was being taken ‘in a new creative direction’ for season 29.

She also offered her, ‘sincere thanks to Tom and Erin, whom we will always consider part of the Dancing with the Stars’ family.’

The pair were let go just days before DailyMail.com exclusively revealed that Tyra Banks would be taking over their hosting gig.  

‘Can Tyra please be the first one sent home?’ wrote one fan, referencing to the series’ nerve-wracking weekly eliminations.

Another Twitter user declared that replacing Tom and Erin with Tyra ‘replaced the heart of the show.’

‘Nothing against her, but it just sounds so off when you hear her voice instead of Tom Bergeron’s. On a year where people WANT comfort of the familiar… it’s just a really poor decision,’ they explained.

The Twitter user also added a gif of Justin Timberlake from one of his appearances on SNL to the tweet, which read: ‘Bad idea. Shouldn’t have done that.’

They went there: One fan went as far as to label Tom's dismissal from Dancing With The Stars as ageist, being that he is 65 and Tyra is 46

Devout Dancing With The Stars viewers accused Banks of making the show ‘all about her,’ due to her frequent comments and her eye-catching ensembles worn during the premiere episode.

One fan said that Tyra was ‘trying too hard to be funny’ and that her attempts at humor were ‘not working.’ 

‘At least Tyra isn’t making it all about her,’ one fan sarcastically tweeted, while attaching an image of Tyra wearing a bright red ball gown and matching arm-length gloves on the show.

Many compared Bank’s scene stealing ensemble that she wore for her grand entrance to a ‘Bath & Body Works’ luffa.

Despite the online backlash, Banks looked in her element as she guided the viewers, judges, dancers, and competitors through Monday night’s season premiere.

‘Whoo! Oh, my gosh, I can’t believe it. I’m finally here. My family and I have been fans of this show since day one. And look, mama, I’m in the ballroom!’ shouted Banks excitedly into her microphone as she entered the ballroom.  

‘Welcome to Dancing with the stars! Right here, right now!’ 

Tyra rocked a voluminous head of curls and a dramatic face of feature flattering makeup as she reacted animatedly to the show’s prerecorded applause.
