Two of the judges on "The Masked Singer" reportedly walked off the show in protest after one of the contestants revealed himself to be Rudy Giuliani.

The incident was first reported by Deadline on Wednesday.

According to the report both Robin Thicke and Ken Jeong left the stage quickly after Giuliani revealed himself.

While he was previously praised as the former mayor of New York City during the 9/11 terror attacks, Giuliani has been excoriated by many on the left for working as an attorney for former President Donald Trump and arguing that the 2020 election was stolen by Democrats.

The popular primetime show on the Fox network features celebrity judges trying to guess the identity of other celebs disguised in colorful costumes by their singing talents. The show is in its seventh season.

The report said that after Thicke and Jeong left the stage, the other judges, Jenny McCarthy and Nicole Scherzinger, chatted with Giuliani. The other judges eventually came back.

The show has faced public outrage before when its host Nick Cannon had to apologize for anti-Semitic comments he made while speaking on his podcast in 2020. He later complained that many in his community called him a "sell out" for apologizing.

Giuliani was subpoenaed last month by the congressional committee investigating the rioting on Jan. 6 at the U.S. Capitol, along with three other attorneys connected to Trump. Committee Chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) said at the time that they were being probed over their role in the protest against the official results of the election.

“The four individuals we’ve subpoenaed today advanced unsupported theories about election fraud, pushed efforts to overturn the election results, or were in direct contact with the former President about attempts to stop the counting of electoral votes," said Thompson.
