“I mean if you’ve got a nice bum and you look sexy in a unitard, why not?”
Love Island champion Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu has responded to complaints about the costume she wore on Dancing On Ice.
Ofcom confirmed this week that they received 112 complaints regarding Ekin-Su’s performance and outfit.
The reality star wore a a full body nude body suit that had diamanté sequins which gave the illusion that she was wearing the same outfit worn by Britney Spears in the original Toxic video. In her performance, she also recreated one of her iconic moments from her time on the reality show, as she crawled across the ice to her professional partner, Brendyn Hatfield.
The performance received a score of 21.5 from the judges, however, the public ranked her lowly which means that she will face another celebrity participant in the skate-off this weekend.
Now that the dust has settled, Ekin-Su has responded to the complaints in the best possible way.
She told The Sun: “You know what? If you have ’em, flaunt them.
“I mean if you’ve got a nice bum and you look sexy in a unitard, why not? Who cares?”
Ekin-Su also seemed to respond to the complainers on Twitter.
The magazine Grazia published an article titled: “Dear Dancing on Ice viewers, it’s not fair to slut-shame Ekin-Su.”
Tasha Ghouri, who appeared in the villa alongside Ekin-Su, replied to Grazia’s tweet and wrote: “had to be said! we got you @ekinsuofficial.”
Ekin-Su retweeted both the article and Tasha’s response.
She also shared a positive message on her Twitter page, writing: “Don’t ever compare yourself to others. You are not a copy. You are an original. Craft your own individuality and sense of style! And just be yourself.”
