'Dancing With the Stars' Attracts Controversy for Casting Chaz Bono

'Dancing With the Stars' is used to courting controversy with its casting choices, and Season 13 is already proving no exception.
Right now, much of the focus is on the inclusion of reality TV veteran -- and child of Sonny and Cher -- Chaz Bono.
Yesterday, we reported that the The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) had welcomed the addition of Bono -- the show's first transgender contestant -- as a positive step for the LGBT community.
Now, however, The Wrap reports that ABC has been attacked by some 'DWTS' fans who are not so thrilled with the casting choices, and that the 'DWTS' online message boards have been lit up with ugly, bigoted comments.
