DANCING With the Stars fans slammed the judges for eliminating Vernon Davis on Monday’s episode of the completion show.
The former NFL player’s time on the ABC show came to an end after he stormed off stage because host Tyra Banks “scared him away.”

When the final two came down to Vernon, 36, and his partner Peta Murgatroyd, 34, next to Johnny Weir, 36, and his partner Britt Stewart, 31, judges Derek Hough, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Toniolo ultimately determined that the football player would be sent home.
While Vernon seemed fine following the elimination, fans took to Twitter to express their outrage.
One DWTS fan wrote: “Ughhh, I’m SO mad!!! @VernonDavis85 and @PetaMurgatroyd should still be there!! They’ve been one of my favorites since night one. He was always such a joy to watch. The show won’t be the same without him. C’mon, judges! Get it together.”
Another angry fan demanded that the show “being Vernon back,” while someone else said: “Ugh I’m so sad Vernon went home. I loved him he was so happy to be there AAUUUGGGHHHH”
An additional fan argued that “Vernon deserved better,” as another Twitter user shaded Johnny by writing: “Yay can’t wait to see the same exact dance from Johnny next week again. Wish they saved Vernon.”

One fan of the ABC show slammed the other contestants by writing: ” Ugh. Why are we stuck with the paper doll and her annoying AF pro? Why are they routinely over scored? Boring. Or the human Ken Doll who can’t choreograph for anything?
“So glad Johnny is staying but SO sad Vernon is leaving.”
During an episode in late September, Vernon memorably ran away before his scheduled interview with Tyra.
After Vernon and Peta put on an impressive performance, the NFL alum grabbed his partner’s arm and sprinted off stage before the 46-year-old host could ask any questions.
The stunned host said: “Where is he going? He’s lost his mind. Where you going boo? Vernon has lost his mind!”

Another added: “Vernon did not want to talk to Tyra.”
A third fan quipped: “Where is Vernon going. AS FAR AWAY FROM YOU AS POSSIBLE TYRA. RUN VERNON BE FREE.”
