Tom Bergeron just hilariously trolled Tyra Banks after she replaced him as host of “Dancing With The Stars,” specifically going after her new promo image for the show.
The image shows Banks in full glam makeup, with her lips bedazzled with silver jewels that aim to symbolize the mirror ball trophy.

“This Just In: National Association of Lip Safety cautions against applying multiple small mirrors on mouth,” Bergeron tweeted in response. “One bad chew and it’s 7 years of bad luck.”

This comes after Bergeron took a dig at “Dancing With The Stars” by changing his Twitter bio to say, “Former Co-Host of ‘Footwork With the Famous.'”
Fans were stunned back in July when Bergeron and his cohost Erin Andrews were abruptly fired and replaced by Banks. Bergeron’s firing was particularly shocking, given the fact that he had hosted the show since 2005.
“Just informed @DancingABC will be continuing without me. It’s been an incredible 15 year run and the most unexpected gift of my career. I’m grateful for that and for the lifelong friendships made,” Bergeron tweeted at the time. “That said, now what am I supposed to do with all of these glitter mask.”

ET Online reported that earlier this week, Banks addressed Bergeron during an interview about the new season.
“Tom, I respect you so much. What you have done for ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ there’s a reason why it is a successful show,” she said. “Yes, amazing producers, yes, amazing concepts, but [you]. I hope to do you proud, and if I make mistakes, I want you to hit me up in the DMs and let me know. Like, ‘Girl, you messed that up.’ Because I want to make you proud. Thank you so much.”
Former contestants and pros alike, however, have made it clear that they are not happy over Bergeron’s firing.
“I’ve texted back and forth with Tom. I would’ve never made that decision, obviously. I think Tom and Erin are the backbone of the show,” former “DWTS” champion Alfonso Ribeiro told US Weekly when news of the exits circulated. “I have no idea where they’re going to go and what changes they want to make and why and how these decisions were made. But I think people like myself will absolutely miss Tom and Erin. It’ll be hard for me to see the show in whatever new form it is.”
