Thousands sign petition for Suzy Cato to return to Dancing With The Stars NZ

Long Lunch 12/06/2018

Children's TV star Suzy Cato was eliminated from Dancing With The Stars NZ on Monday night, but fans are taking action to get her back on the show.

A petition has been launched online claiming Ms Cato was "unfairly voted off" the programme, and urging Mediaworks to bring her back. The petition also suggests that ACT Party leader David Seymour exit in her place.

The petition has attracted more than 2,000 signatures.

The elimination has also prompted various memes, GIFs, and outrage on social media.

Mr Seymour has defended his position following the elimination. He pointed out that the people who are criticising him should have voted for Ms Cato.
