AceShowbiz - Lamar Odom sent fans into frenzy with his action during a live broadcast on "Dancing with the Stars" on Monday, October 7. The athlete seemingly couldn't hold the itch as he was caught scratching his genital right in front of the ABC camera.
A fan shared the clip on social media and it didn't take long before it went viral. In the said video, the ex of Khloe Kardashian didn't seem to realize that he was in frame. Donning a white suit, he was seen standing tall behind co-host Erin Andrews before he casually scratched his itchy balls. Later, he was seen removing something off his hand.
The fan who recorded the broadcast and some people surrounding her could be heard cheering and laughing out loud when it happened.
The video unsurprisingly set tongues wagging with many people weighing in on the incident. "Dude got that itch," one fan trolled in an Instagram comment underneath The Shade Room's post of the clip. "Sir. U IS OUT IN THE WHOLE PUBLIC," another person added.
Meanwhile, some fans didn't think that he was scratching his genital. "Y'all wrong for that!! That man was just repositioning his equipment....," said one user. Another person echoed the sentiment, writing, "He was fixing hisself y'all."
While most people laughed at Lamar for that, some others jumped into his defense. "Nope. This is all men in general. Especially the leg shake," one fan insisted. Another fan wrote, "As much as dudes do this, I don't see why ppl are making it a thing! Nothing to see here...," with a person writing, "Please don't drag this man he's been through too much."
His balls-scratching incident aside, the episode marked Lamar's last time performing on "Dancing with the Stars". He and his partner Peta Murgatroyd were eliminated that night following a performance of a Viennese Waltz to "In the Air Tonight" by Phil Collins.
Of the routine, guest judge Leah Ramini said that the former athleted "did an amazing job." Meanwhile, Len Goodman said, "There is a gentleness about you, I love to see that. If the others had to climb hills, you had to climb mountains. You did a great job, well done." The judges gave him 20 points.
