The fake tweet Kim Kardashian sent out to help her brother Rob on Dancing with the Starshas infuriated the other contestants of the show.
On Monday she wrote to her 10.7 million followers: “OMG I have @JustinBieber’s phone#!!!!
800 8684302! CALL HIM! He’s taking calls for the next hour!!!” but that number was the line to vote for her brother on DWTS.
Her own fans turned on her on Twitter, calling her “lame” and accusing her of “cheating” for her brother, and we also learned that the other contestants don’t approve of her sneaky tactics either.
“It is totally unfair that Kim did that,” an insider told us. “The other celebs on the show don’t send out fake information to trick people into voting.”
Rob’s family members have been in the audience supporting him and have waged an on-line campaign for him but the other competitors said this trick went over the line.
“Some of the contestants think that Rob should be disqualified for having his family cheat like that for him,” the DWTS insider revealed.
The trick might have worked, because despite the strength of his mom Cher’s support, Chaz Bono was sent home Tuesday night.
Dancing with the Stars returns to ABC Monday at 8 p.m.
