On Wednesday, ABC announced the new lineup for their popular reality show "Dancing With The Stars." Among the standouts in the new group of contestants vying for the mirrorball trophy is the latest star of ABC's "The Bachelorette" Hannah Brown, "American Idol" contestant Lauren Alaina, and former White House press secretary Sean Spicer. However, it seems as though "DWTS" host Tom Bergeron isn't very happy with some choices the producers have made when it comes to casting.

In a tweet that the longtime host wrote following the announcement, he revealed that he wasn't pleased with the outcome. 

"A few months ago, during a lunch with DWTS' new Executive Producer, I offered suggestions for Season 28. Chief among them was my hope that DWTS, in its return following an unprecedented year-long hiatus, would be a joyful respite from our exhausting political climate and free of inevitably divisive bookings from ANY party affiliations," he wrote.

Continuing, he shared that he had left that lunch feeling convinced that they agreed on the direction moving forward. However, upon Spicer's casting, he realized he had been mistaken and that a decision had been privately made to "go in a different direction."

He additionally stated that as the host he tries to imagine the audience on the other side of the lens as he assumes they turn in for weekly escapism, which he seems to believe could be taken away once political figures are interjected into the reality competition.

"Hopefully, when [co-host] Erin Andrews and I look into those lenses again on September 16, you'll be on the other side looking back, able to enjoy the charismatic pro dancers, the unpredictable judges and the kitschy charm that has defined DWTS since 2005," he concluded. Bergeron's tweet can be seen in its entirety below.


"Dancing With The Stars" will begin Season 28 on Monday, Sept. 16, at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
