Dancing With the Stars Cracks Birther Joke During Season Finale

(ABC)

During Tuesday night’s live finale of “Dancing With The Stars,” ESPN’s Kenny Mayne and legendary NFL wide receiver Jerry Rice appeared in a segment called “DanceCenter,” a play on ESPN’s Emmy award-winning show SportsCenter. And yes, they even slipped in a “birther” joke about one of the finalists.

“She’s the youngest winner of Dancing With the Stars at age 17. This year, she claims to be 20. We checked into her past and we can’t find a birth certificate of her from Hawaii. No proof she was even born there,” Mayne said about finalist and Olympic gold-medalist Shawn Johnson.

“That’s because she was born in Des Moines,” Rice replied.
